Things I Love About Myself.

I have made the decision to love myself. This is a very important decision, not only for me, but for my daughters. They need to see the importance of loving yourself, and they need to see it in me. I have started a list, and may add to it when I feel so inclined. Be warned. There are several pictures.

Things that I love about my body / myself:

  • I have beautiful eyes. They like to change color.


  • Even though I am bigger than I want to be, I have a great figure.


  • I am flexible.
  • I can pop whatever joints I need to.
  • I am somewhat double jointed.
  • I can get out of bed every morning.
  • My organs all work the way they are supposed to.
  • All five of my senses work well.
  • I have created two beautiful, healthy daughters.

  • I have delivered both of my daughters naturally. Without painkillers.
  • I have an intelligent mind.
  • I like my eyebrows. They have a good shape.

  • I have a pretty face with makeup or without.


  • I love my freckles and beauty marks.
