About a month ago a friend emailed me and asked if I wanted to participate in a sort of special project, The Define Beautiful Project. She asked me, along with several other ladies to write something up about what made us feel beautiful.
It took me forever to think of something.
A long long time.
Mainly because I have a hard time believing myself that I am beautiful. My self image issues are insane. I can name about 100 things in less than 5 minutes that I don't like about myself but I had a hard time coming up with a short list of things that I did like about myself. It took me about a week and a half to come up with an answer. Which is pathetic.
This tiny little exercise was the hardest and most rewarding experience. It made me realize that I have a lot, and I mean a lot of things going for me. It also made me realize that I have a lot to work on with coming to terms with myself.
Go read my definition of beautiful and maybe you should participate. It's been an amazing experience.
