The point is you are tagged by a friend & you are supposed to post 5 pictures of yourself where you find yourself beautiful.
When I first got tagged, I was like, I can't do this. I honestly thumbed through pictures & found absolutely nothing beautiful about myself. I just felt sick to my stomach.
I saw others posting pictures & they all looked so beautiful in their pictures... & I just wanted to have something to post that I was proud of.
But then I read what most of them put on their pictures... "This was hard to do... " .... "I don't find myself beautiful BUT...." .... "I find beauty in myself when I'm around family"...
similar comments of people that you can tell they struggled with it as well.
So I took the plunge.
I found some pictures & put them together.
& it wasn't that I found myself "beautiful" in them. I look at them & see every flaw.
Those crooked teeth. That sideways smile. The extra weight that I could get off. The skin that is blotchy & freckled.
But I also see happiness
Marrying the love of my life
Making my half marathon PR
Getting to be a princess in little girls eyes
Enjoying the breeze from an ocean
Spending a day at a wedding where I got to dance in the mother of the groom dance in honor of my friend
Moments....full of beauty...
It was a challenge... & maybe now the challenge is to find more beauty in myself...
