Day 36/365

Today was kind of a body-conscious day. I went shopping for new glasses, which means gratuitous pictures of myself (which I typically avoid) because it's the ONLY way for this blind-betty to be able to actually SEE what I look like in new frames.

The good news is, I actually rather like the photo I snagged of me in the frames I ended up choosing-- but it is always a challenge for me to stay positive when I see photos of myself. I have been overweight for most of my life and although I've worked myself into a positive place about a lot of things in recent months, the way I look is still a work in progress.

This quote moved me though, I loved this idea. The idea that my BODY is not who I am. My SOUL is. It's a really beautiful expression of the "it's what's inside that counts." So instead of working on a diet, or looking better... I'm going to work on making my body match my soul. Because I know THAT at least, is beautiful, just the way it is.
