reflection

We can all relate to this. The hated reflection. I propose that whenever any of you can't stand to look in the mirror, look instead to the beauty you see in other women. That beauty is you.

In so many ways looking at that makes me think of all the times I stand or avoid a mirror. Besides the images of what the reflection is, but all the images that other people want us to be or look like.

In so many ways we think we are not skinny, or muscular, or pretty or girlie enough and it starts giving us that actual weight we may see in that reflection.

I fight with that everyday, as I am sure all of us do with that uncertainty, which always rises a question in me: what is there to do to help ourselves feel proud of who and what we are?

The form in the mirror is the goddess form. Men should truly worship that figure. It bespeaks of fertility and nurturing.

hmmm... I have to say there are many times when I have felt like the above drawing... even for me it's not how much I weigh it's how comfortable I am in my own skin

We've all got moments of self-doubt, and that's fine. But being sexy, feeling sexy, womanly, feminine - it's nothing more than confidence.

Y'know what - that is what I saw for years in the mirror when I weighed between 9 and 10 stone and was like a stick.
Now I weigh about 13 stone and I look and see a goddess with curves and bumps and don't always think she is beautiful but I don't hate her....
And the important thing is that the body in your picture in the mirror is beautiful - it's only a body and it's a human being and it is therefore beautiful....
