Share with the rest of us how and when you came to accept your reality for what is was or is?!
Dear 17-18 years old girl,If you had the chance to go back and confess something to your younger self, what would you say?
You got mom worried. She told you that if you eat too much you will get fat. Then you stopped to eat all the fat foods. She made you conscious about the food you ate and to lose the weight, you did the yo-yo dieting. Then you bought those dieting pills... and when you lost the weight, she turned around and phoned your elder sister because you were losing so much weight?
You felt good, but deep down you still felt ugly.
Why did you bother you pretty girl?
I know why. You wanted somebody to tell you "You are beautiful." To have a mother who could listen to Unpretty and understand you. You were strong for your self, but that was okay. Although you think you lost the weight for yourself, you did it because deep down you were acting on those words.
Let me tell you girl, you will find comfort and support through your poetry. You will then find true love when you least expect it a few months down the line. The person will love you because you are beautiful from the inside.
You will still have the extra pounds but you will know which clothes to wear to flatter the body. You will enjoy the curves because they make you a really beautiful woman. You will undertand that you are gracious in the 501 Lewis - you will buy them again to show off your curves :)!. You will champion your natural looks.
As you can read, everything will turn out alright. You will love life in full: with all it has to offer and more! You will see the queen in your self and you will cherish her! Because you will learn to appreciate life through the half full glass...
Your quasi-30something Self!
Oprah as a phenomena inspires and we hope we can confess on Be Inspired Monday post why she inspires so much! According to us she has a positive attitude and strong personality. Obviously we can believe what we see on television but there is still something about the woman that push people to try to achieve greter things in their lives.
The question today is: How can one come from abject poverty and become inspiring to so many people around the world?
Let's us confess on TC30s what or who inspires us!
