What do you see when you look in the mirror?
I don’t know about you but when I look in the mirror I tend to see every single thing I do not like. I see the size of my butt.. my small eyes… the list goes on and on.
What I realized this morning is there are some very important things I am not seeing also when I look in the mirror... For Example: When I look in the mirror I don’t see an amputated Leg. I don’t see myself in wheelchair… I don’t see scars from being a battered woman and this list could go on and on.
Then when I was staring at myself in the mirror this morning, I realized that in order for me to truly Love God who created me, I truly had to start loving the body that I am in. In this current body, no matter what I like or don’t like, I need to learn to love who I am now. Not Me after 10 weeks of the biggest loser me. But Me today.
This Morning I also realized How Can I ever truly take care of something the way God wants me to if I do not love it first. Our Bodies are the Temple of God. But if we do not love them how can we take care of and treat them with the respect God wants us too.
Because if I truly start loving the body God has given me more..then just maybe I will start treating it better and become more healthy by appreciating what God has given me the first place.
