The Story of Me

Taking a good look at myself...

Take they yin and the yang. There is a bit of good in
everything evil, and a bit of evil in everything good.

Pretty much sums up human nature doesn't it? As good as we
think we are, as much as we try to improve
ourselves...there will always be that tiny part of evil
that lives in all of us. It's just a matter of when and
where you want that part to show through. Sometimes it's
totally inappropriate.

The prospect of perfection isn't at all unheard of. We all
try to be the best that we can be, but no one will ever
gain perfection.

I was having a conversation with someone who told me that I
was too thin...let me think about that one for a minute.
Yeah, I'm thin, that's my body structure. I've never had a
problem with me before. When I look in the mirror, I can't
count my ribs, I don't starve myself. I have never battled
an eating disorder...never even though about it. So why
does weight determine anything? So I'm a size 7...and I'm
116 pounds. Does that mean that I am too skinny? I hardly
think so. I'm happy with my weight, I'm not out to impress
anyone but myself. Hey, if you don't like it, don't look at
it, right?

Anyway, vanity is too over rated. I haven't even taken the
time to do my makeup for a week, and I haven't done a thing
with my hair. I pull it up in a ponytail to go running,
then I do the same thing when i get out of the shower. But
you know what? That person in the mirror without makeup on
and all done up? It's still me, and I'm beautiful. So what
if I have my faults? You can't cover them up forever...

Acceptance is key. Learning to love yourself for who you
are, and not for your features. Beauty is only skin deep,
and if you can make yourself beautiful on the inside, then
it will show on the outside as well.

I have babbled for too long, and I went completely off
topic. I didn't mean to write this much. Goodnight all!!
Sweet dreams.
