Listen, You Are Beautiful

This is going to be a quick post, it has been a very long day... I had the VON come in to look at my skin graft, Cindy came down with Valentina, a dear friend came over to help me clean up a little and another brought me dinner.  I haven't really rested today, so my body is taking over and telling me... get some rest.

I just wanted to touch base and tell everyone, I am so catching up on all my blogs still, it is almost 3 weeks worth.  Where my computer is situated it is difficult for me to sit too long to type.  So, I need to lay up on my bed and just relax for a while.

I am a little disappointed with myself, although I know I am only human... I expect so much more from myself...  I have been allowing stress to take our my life, I have been pushing myself a little too much and I really need to listen to my body.

I read this quote above after having an interesting experience today... which reminded me of the incident... I ran to the washroom to brush my teeth, when I looked in the mirror, I had no make-up, my hair was in a high pony tail and I was still in my nighty... but I really looked at myself and thought... I am pretty... I don't always think this of myself... I am often critical.  I really looked at myself though, I have nice shaped eyes, I have great lips, full and shaped like a bow and I have wonderful hair, long and thick... Usually I have to have my hair done and make up on and all dressed up to see myself this way.  Today though... I what I saw was beautiful to me.  We all need to do that once and a while, really look at ourselves and love ourselves.

I cherish my past, I accept my present and I dream for my future

  3. Hello Launna:
    You really must take one day at a time and not try to rush your recovery period.

    And of course we are all beautiful, so why not you?!!

  7. This is a beautiful post.. I need to take your advice and really look at myself sometimes. I'm often so critical of what I see in the mirror but never take the time to appreciate the looks I do have

    Hope you're feeling better. Lots of love and hugs xxx

  9. You can write so beautifully and I am sure only a person who is beautiful inside and out can write like this. I do hope that you feel good and feel like being up and about. Mirrors do not lie and if you take time to look carefully you will actually see the beauty you have. Take Care

  11. Great post, Launna. I think we are all more critical of ourselves than others are, and we don't even realize it. I hope you get the rest you need. Be good to yourself.

I love and appreciate all genuine comments, to save a little time, I won't be commenting on the comments on my blog (unless you don't have a blog), I will just visit your blog and comment there, if you have left a meaningful comment for me... I would much rather spend the time reading and commenting on a few extra blogs ❤
