I don’t want to look back in five years time and think, ‘We could have been magnificent, but I was afraid.’ In 5 years I want to tell of how fear tried to cheat me out of the best thing in life, and I didn’t let it.
You gotta remember that changing your outside won’t do shit for your inside. If you don’t like and accept yourself now, you won’t like or accept yourself 20lbs up or down from here. Embrace your body, love it, cherish it, accept it, then work on it.
“I have noticed that if you look carefully at people’s eyes the first five seconds they look at you, the truth of their feelings will shine through for just an instant before it flickers away.”—Sue Monk Kidd (via purplebuddhaproject)
