Toot your own Horn
Tuesday, March 02, 2021
WHen I was growing up I do not remember ever being complimented. Or being told I was loved.
NO matter how well I behaved. NO matter how much I tried to look my best.
NO matter how hard I tried.
I remember feeling worthless. Ugly. Unloved.
Still I kept trying. I did my best at school. I obeyed my parents. I took care of my younger siblings. I was a kind friend.
WHen I got married, I finally felt loved and appreciated. Having children helped.
But deep down I have always felt less than, not good enough, ugly.
SInce joining SP I have been learning to accept myself for who I am. To see that a number on a scale does not define me. TO find all of the positive attributes I possess.
SO Today I am going to "Toot my own horn."
I am going to list as many good, positive things about myself. I am going to try to look at myself through my husband's eyes, my children and grandchildren's eyes, my friends' eyes.
I am hardest on myself. Others see the good in my. I need not only to find it, but to embrace it.
SO today. let's toot our own horns.
