Is anyone else experiencing a heatwave like woah? It was 98 degrees here yesterday and 99 degrees today. On days like this, I'm happy I don't have a job that requires me to be outside all day. It's bad enough walking the 5 blocks to the train station!
This morning, as I was getting ready for work, I had one of my embrace yourself moments. I've talked about my body image issues before on the blog, but if you're a new reader, the short story is that seeing myself for how I really am versus how I think I look is a struggle.
My general rule for work is that I won't wear sleeveless shirts or dresses because I don't like the way my arms look. It's an area where I'm self conscious no matter how much I try to talk myself out of it.
Today? Well, today was just different. I put on my sleeveless dress and reminded myself that my body has done amazing things, and I wasn't going to be ashamed of my arms today. Today, I am accepting myself where I am and loving myself for just being me. And you know what? That's what I'm thankful for today.
Here I am embracing myself this morning by taking a ridiculous picture in the women's bathroom at work. I'm not a "take pictures in the bathroom" kinda girl, so bear with me on this one!
Embrace yourself where you are each and every day.
Question of the Day:
What are you thankful for today?
Until next time!
