Happy Hump Day everyone! It’s the first day of August, and I hope that you’re looking forward to making this month great!
For today’s PositiviTea I chose a quote that touches close to home. When I was younger I wasn’t the most confident person in the world. I thought I was overweight and unattractive. Even though my parents told me every day how beautiful I was it still didn’t change what I saw in the mirror. But one day, I woke up and saw a beautiful girl in the mirror. Had I been able to lose the weight? No. Did I do something drastic to my body to make me seem more attractive? Absolutely not! But I decided that day I was going to stop beating up on myself and comparing myself to others. I told myself everyone had weaknesses by you don’t see a world a fill of depressed people.
I had to be grateful for who I was and let my light shine! I accepted who I was and what I wasn’t. Trust me it’s easier said than done, and it’s work every day. But it does get a little easier to do.
Are there things in your life that you’re struggling to accept? Try saying the serenity prayer every morning,
“God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
Courage to change the things I can,
And wisdom to know the difference.”
The first day you may not feel anything different, or even the second. But soon you should start to be able to wake up and love what you see in the mirror!
Have a great day and don’t forget to spread some PositiviTea!
