Mirrors aren't my best friend. I never liked looking at it, seeing my reflection staring back. I would see every flaw that others might not notice. Staring back at me was all of my secrets. There are days I could look past and see God's beauty, grace, and blessings.
When I tried to loose a few pounds, I carried the burden along with extra calories. Stress my lack of confidence, and desire to hide. I never wanted to take pictures, which added even more weight. I knew I had to do better, and it had to start with me.
So I did just that, starting with me. As a result, I feel amazing, and my confidence is at its highest level. I am so proud of where I am on my journey. I see more and more improvements in how I look and feel each day.
I approach all aspects of my life with a fresh perspective. A mirror that only reflects the new and does not reflect the old. I have outgrown my old self and don't regret it. I am choosing to elevate myself to the next level. The one thing about this life; it moves on regardless of what I do. I will be on top of things and enjoy each day I am graced.
