I started working out recently. Like on the regular. I have such a bad body image about myself. And it’s shameful because a lot of people tell me that I’m very cute. Well, today I actually believed some of those people. And lo and behold, my confidence booster is over 9000!! This whole changing of mindset thing has been challenging. But over all I think I have become a better person for it.
That said, I found a song that I think I will listen to every day for the next couple of weeks. One the way home I heard the song “Just the Way You Are” by Bruno Mars. I’ve heard the song before, but I never knew who it was. I also only just listened to it with half an ear. Today I really listened to it and it just made my confidence soar a little higher.
I actually have that person who tells me that I’m beautiful, amazing and perfect as I am, but like most women I can’t take a compliment. But after hearing that, I think that will be my theme and mantra for a while. It made me feel so good. And I like feeling good. You act and think differently when you do. It’s not something I do nearly enough.
So as I continue my journey to self improvement, I’ll have a great song that I can turn to to remind me that I am a great person, because I am me. There is no one else like me(thank goodness :p) and that I am truly amazing just as I am right now. It’s time for me to accept the truth for what it is.
