Who do you look up to and admire? It can be someone in your life currently or in the past. Or it could be a public figure or celebrity. What do you admire about this person?
I admire my grandmother. She has lived independently into her 90's after raising 6 amazing children and being married for decades. I admire her strength as a woman and a mother. I also admire her kindness and generosity. She instilled a deep sense of devotion and reverence for the Catholic faith in me, which I now share with my husband and son. I admire her intelligence and her passion for sports. She never forgets a birthday. She loves her family with all her heart. I am a better person because of her presence in my life.
Not a single thing that I admire about her is related to her appearance. I don't know or care how much she weighs or whether she lost the baby weight after each of her children. None of that matters.
What others appreciate about you as a person is not about your appearance. They care about your integrity, your kindness, your ability to connect and make a difference in the lives of others. Don't waste your life obsessing about your body image. You are a wonderful, valuable human being regardless of how much you weigh or whether you ate carbs today. Choose to invest your energy in the things that matter.
