You Are Enough

I saw this image on long distance loving the other day and I needed to steal it for my own blog, and for the list of mini mantras that I store in the back of my mind. Like so many others, I hit the gym hard after the holidays. After years of body and eating issues (another post for another time), I'm proud to have arrived at a place where I allow myself to indulge, where I find great happiness in a delicious meal shared with loved ones, and where I don't regret dessert at the end of the day. I also don't regret workouts, the feeling of accomplishment, of sweat and sore muscles, of pushing myself for another mile. What I avoid? The scale. It serves no purpose to me. I hope for and work toward loving who I see in the mirror, feeling great in my clothes, being strong and powerful. I spent a long time worrying about how I appeared to others, wondering if I was thin enough to be seen as the person I thought I should be. But inner beauty and the infectious energy of a happy person are so much more important and have a greater impact on the world around us. Today, I am enough, and so are all of you.
Thanks to Alison for this very special reminder.
