Since I haven’t shared any AAL (awesome at life) moments with you lately, I figured I’d start this post with a light hearted mood and show, quite possibly, my best AAL moment to date. Enjoy:
I get pooped on by birds more than your average person. One of the many reasons I’m thankful I carry wet ones in my purse. You just never know, my friends. You just never know….I’d like to dedicate this little video to Jamie. ;0)
Ok, onto my legs….
As I used this bad boy on my bare legs, my instinctual critical mind stepped in, and tried to let negative (or shall I say, “fat talk”) thoughts come to the surface.
“That is ENOUGH” I told myself…. “If I’m such a strong believer in Caitlin and her words of true wisdom, why am I letting these negative thoughts even cross my mind?”
In honor of Operation Beautiful’s “Change the Way You See, Not the Way You Look”, I started to mentally list why my legs are so wonderful, and friends…let me be the first to say, these are all facts I truly believe.
Though by societies standards they’ve forced upon us, my legs are not “perfect”….they are to me! My legs are strong, and my legs are beautiful. I am thankful that I have the ability to do things many, unfortunately, cannot… and I have my legs to thank! They are the only legs I’ll ever have (unless of course that olympic runner leg transplant comes through…) so I need to love ’em!
Have you ever had that “knock it off!!!” moment when negative thoughts are trying to make their way into your life? How did you conquer those? Tell me something beautiful about YOU now! :0)
