"You are the only person who is in charge of how you feel about yourself.
Nobody else can possibly do that.
You get to decide if you believe you are beautiful or not,
and nobody can take it away from you.
If someone suggests that you aren’t beautiful,
you can consider how sad it is that they have such a limited view of beauty.
You can consider how unfortunate it is that they have
such an exaggerated sense of self-importance
that they think you should care about what they think.
You can also choose to realize that it has nothing at all to do with your beauty
and everything to do with their limitations."
A friend of mine sent me this quote yesterday and I am still grinning from ear to ear. I love it that much. Way too much of my life has been spent worrying about what others think of me and now that I have finally let go of those thoughts, life is pretty awesome. Just because we live in a society that puts so-called limitations on beauty does not mean we need to abide by them.
Most of you have probably seen this video already, but it needs to be shown again. It makes me smile every single time.
"Beauty isn’t between a size 0 and 8. It’s not a number at all. It’s not physical."
