You will see your harshest critic within moments of waking. Greet them with love, kindness & understanding. Then look away from the mirror.
—Mike Page (via lovers2mind)
It doesn’t make sense to call ourselves ugly, because we don’t really see ourselves. We don’t watch ourselves sleeping in bed, curled up and silent with chests rising and falling with our own rhythm. We don’t see ourselves reading a book, eyes fluttering and glowing. You don’t see yourself looking at someone with love and care inside your heart. There’s no mirror in your way when you’re laughing and smiling and happiness is leaking out of you. You would know exactly how bright and beautiful you are if you saw yourself in the moments where you are truly yourself.
Your weight determines
your relationship with gravity;
but it should never determine
your relationship with yourself.
