Never let anyone tell you that you’re too fat, too short, too skinny, too tall.
You are who you are, and that is completely good enough.
completely good enough.
good enough? who raised you?
The way I was taught you never settle or deal with good enough. This has nothing to do with how you look. This has everything to do with the fact that most of america is perfectly ok with being mediocre. Why don’t we want to be amazing?
More so, why don’t we want to be healthy?
I’m not saying give in to criticism or bullies. I’m saying make the best of the body you have. We’re not infinite. Don’t ignore life.
Don’t waste your time ignoring what’s most important around you.
I don’t think that was about ignoring what’s important, it’s about knowing that it’s ok to love yourself the way you are. Especially when society is saying something different.
That’s just it though. Loving yourself IS what’s important. Not many people actually love their bodies. I work with a girl who obviously hates her body even though she’s a perfect size. She eats crap and sits around all day.
Hating your body is something that isn’t even on the tip of your thoughts 99% of the time. We have to remember to eat well and exercise. People can diet all they want but in the end it’s good fruits and vegetables and exercise that will give you a healthy body.
Right now I’m sitting inside looking at how sunny it is and playing Diablo. I don’t really love my self right now. I’d love myself if I were pushing myself to go off on a bike ride or even a run. I’d be really proud of myself then.
This even brings about how loosely we use the word love now. I wont even get into that.
Overall the way I look at things has to be from a future view. If I can look back at the past hour/day/week/month/year whatever and feel like I spent my time wisely then I know that I can be confident in myself.
