Embrace your beauty

I've been thinking about this a lot lately.   There has never been a time in my life where I felt beautiful.   Well okay, a couple of days in my early 20's and a few times in my early 30's..  Never a consistent feeling of being beautiful though.

Now my husband and my MIL always feel they look great no matter what.   I want to be that way.  I look back at pictures from when I was younger and think "why didn't I realize at the time that I was pretty?".   

Why do some people always feel they are beautiful or pretty or good looking or whatever you want to call it while others don't see themselves as they truly are?

I don't have the answers but I do know that I am starting to realize that I should have enjoyed feeling pretty when I was younger.   Okay, that's not my point.. I should enjoy feeling pretty right now... I am realizing that I have missed out on lots of "feeling pretty" times and that in ten years I will look back at where I am today and wonder why I didn't feel pretty..

Embrace your beauty for where you are today and feel happy about it...let the world take pictures of you whether you like it or not!  Someday you will be glad you did..

Thank you Connie. That was just what I needed to brighten my day. As you know, that's something I've been struggling with myself.
You, my dear, are a beautiful woman, and a wonderful mother. Don't let anyone let you think otherwise, not ever yourself.
