I’m grateful for how I’m put together most of the time. However, flab keeps me humble
I’ve been thin [0-2] and thick [hate the word but 8-10]…and now I’m in the middle [mostly 6]. Regardless of girth and corpulence, I tend to look the same – the only tell is the roundness of my face.
I tend not to belabor what I like about myself – seems churlish and tacky, but I thank God for that which I like and try to understand that which I don’t.
Directly from God
- Face shape
- Eye shape
- Eye color
- Hands like my Pa
- Mostly proportional
- Lip shape
- High waist
From God via my obedience to being a good steward of my person
- Curves – think this is from Ma
I think each person has something beautiful about them. I try to see the beauty in what God created instead of judging pretty vs. ugly. That kind of judging is ugly and small-minded.
Even more so, it is insulting of the Creator and it disrespects a fellow image bearer. I’d be a liar if I acted like anything other than a work-in-progress 🙂 But mindfulness is key.
