Here's Something To Feel Good About Today!
In full bloom

In a clothing store, a young woman struck up a conversation with me. She was clearly very over weight. Not the usual five to ten pounds that a lot of us complain about, more like one hundred pounds in excess. Smiling and relaxed she explained that she hadn't always been a plus size. Although she hoped to lose weight, she had learned an important lesson, to be happy today at whatever size she was.
Her change of heart occurred after looking at an old photograph of herself when she was slimmer, younger and perhaps more beautiful. The sad part she told me was that at the time, she had never really appreciated herself. Now she promised herself she would never again wait for some time in the future to feel good or to be happy.
This young woman's story is a great reminder that it's an art to practice happiness. As time passes you will never be younger, and those extra pounds may never come off. You can however, make the choice that she makes every day. Focus on the good you see in yourself, really value your assets and all you wish to become will blossom.BEST-PHOTO
