“Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful”

I've been reading a lot online lately about motivation over the past couple of months.  During that time I have encountered many cool, interesting, and extremely motivating blogs written by fabulous women of all ages from all over the world.
One thing that has been really disturbing to me is the number of young women out there who have so much self-hate and dissatisfaction with their bodies … many to the point of having an eating disorder such as anorexia, bulimia, or binge eating.
Most of us have looked in the mirror and not liked what we saw there.  To this day, every time I try on clothes, I still see myself as the overweight 12-year-old girl that I once was.  It can be a huge challenge to look in the mirror and not be critical, but I promise you, this is the MOST IMPORTANT relationship that you will ever have.

The Truth about Self-Love
Most people have a little voice inside that has told them that they are “not good enough” for something.  This can ruin our lives and often does ruin our relationships.

What people are really searching for out there is self-love … but they are looking for a job or a relationship to fill that void.  No person or possession can fill that void.  It is solely up to you.

Practicing Self-Love
It’s time to let go & start practicing.  Self-love must be unconditional.  You can’t only love yourself when you’ve been a “good girl” – that’s too easy.  You have to also love the girl who ate the Oreo ice cream sundae or the girl who hasn’t been to the gym in three months.  Like everything else … practice makes perfect. 
Once you have begun to love yourself in a real way, you begin to see a shift in how you prioritize your life.

“Happiness is … looking in the mirror and liking what you see.”

People who are self-loving see a whole person when they look in the mirror and not just flaws. Keep this in mind. The next time you look at yourself in the mirror, try being a little less critical of the person looking back at you. Let your
new mantra be … “Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful.” Say it every time you look in the mirror. Before long, you may just start liking what you see.

Never try to hide it !

Yes I have made mistakes in my life !!!
Yes I have made bad choices !!!
Yes I have let people take advantage of me !!! 

But, I have learned from my mistakes and bad choices,
I know there are a certain things which I can't get back, there are some people who are not going to say sorry even, but that's how life is !!!
I'll try to know it in a more better manner next time, but till then I won't settle for anything less then I deserve !!!
I have seen better days, but I also have seen worse !!!
I don't have everything I want, but I do have what I need !!!
I woke up with some aches & pains, but I woke up !!!
My life is not perfect, but I am blessed !!!

P.S - I am too wide for narrow mind people ... !!!

Pay for a Kindness!

One day, a poor boy used to sell goods from door to door to pay his own school fees.

One day he found that he had only one thin dime left, and he was hungry. He decided he would ask for a meal at the next house. However, he lost his nerve when a lovely young woman opened the door.

Instead of a meal he asked for a drink of water. She thought he looked hungry so brought him a large glass of milk.

He drank it slowly, and then asked, “How much do I owe you?”
“You don’t owe me anything,” she replied. “Mother has taught us never to accept pay for a kindness.”

He said, “Then I thank you from my heart.”

As the poor boy left that house, he not only felt stronger physically, but his faith in God and Man was strong as well. He had been ready to give up and quit.

Years later that young woman became critically ill. The local doctors were baffled. They finally sent her to the big city, where they called in specialists to study her rare disease.
When a Doctor was called in for the consultation. And when he heard the name of the town she came from, a strange light filled his eyes. Immediately he rose and went down the hall of the hospital to her room.

Dressed in his doctor’s gown he went in to see her. He recognized her at once. He went back to the consultation room determined to do his best to save her life. From that day he gave special attention to the case.

After a long struggle, the battle was won. Doctor requested the business office to pass the final bill to him for approval. He looked at it, then wrote something on the edge and the bill was sent to her room.

She feared to open it, and she was sure it would take the rest of her life to pay for it. Finally she looked, and something caught her attention on the side of the bill. She began to read the following words:

“Paid in full with one glass of milk” Doctor Howard Kelly


A boy from a poor family who was a door-to-door salesman ran out of money.  He was hungry and decided to ask for food from the next person who answered the door.  He ended up merely asking for a glass of water, however, and the woman he asked brought him a glass of milk instead.  Many years later, the poor boy was now a famous physician named Dr. Howard Kelly and the woman who gave him the glass of milk was seriously ill.  He gave himself to her care, she recovered, and when the bill was presented, Dr. Kelly wrote, "Paid in full with one glass of milk."
