Wow, you’re doing great!

“umm, err, thanks?”

Why is it so hard to accept a compliment? Why do we not see in ourselves what others see? Are we our own worst critic? Why are we so hard on ourselves? We need to lose a few more pounds, color our hair, and whiten our teeth… Does it ever end?

I’ve noticed, especially among us women folk that we tend to be very competitive and compare ourselves to each other far too much. We constantly strive for perfection forgetting that perfection is unattainable. There is not a person in this world that thinks of themselves as perfect. We all have insecurities, either physical or emotional. And that just makes us human.

With that said, I also feel that we all have room for improvement in our lives. Sometimes we get complacent in our day to day lives. There is nothing wrong with wanting to improve yourself. Change is good. Challenges are good. Without failures, how would we learn? Now is the time to make a change. Change your attitude, change your body, and change your life. But most importantly, make it for yourself; not so that you can look like that celebrity walking on the beach, or the model in the magazine.

Let’s get stronger, healthier, and more confident.

We are strong. We are beautiful. We are unique. Embrace all that you are.

Challenge: Don’t be afraid to brighten someone’s day. Give a stranger a compliment today!

P.S. – I’ll try to get some links up for our favorite recipes soon!
