It's a balmy -12 degrees in Chicago this morning...and I have a meeting to attended :/ I sure wish I could skip this on! But, at the moment, I am sitting in front a of a nice warm fire, so all is well :)
I had another post all ready to go, and then I turned my computer on this morning and found a very interesting article that I thought I would share.
Weight and sizing is something that I think almost all women, both young and old deal with...fight with actually, on an ongoing basis. Somehow, so many feel that their weight, or the size that they wear equates to beauty. If you've read the blog for sometime, you may remember me talking about a nun with whom I was close. At 80 years old, she was by far, the most beautiful woman I've ever known. She was not thin. What she possessed was poise, grace, and a strong sense of confidence in herself.
Here's the video I saw. It's short, just a few minutes long. The line that really grabbed me was when she was talking about counseling young girls and having them ask, "If I were skinnier, would he have stayed?" Heartbreaking.
Here's a link to the article. HERE you will find a link to her Facebook page where you may leave a comment if you wish.
As I wish you a wonderful day, I would like to leave you with this quote from Deena Shoemaker,
Your size does not determine your beauty,
Your life does.
