Your Attitude and Your Body Image

This popped up in my inbox, I have no idea who wrote it but would love to give credit where’s it’s due – if you know, please let me know. Meanwhile please read on, this is just wonderful 🙂

bald There once was a woman who woke up one morning, looked in the mirror, and noticed she had only three hairs on her head.

‘Well,’ she said, ‘I think I’ll braid my hair today.’

So she did and she had a wonderful day.

The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and saw that she had only two hairs on her head.

‘H-M-M,’ she said, ‘I think I’ll part my hair down the middle today.’

So she did and she had a grand day.

The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and noticed that she had only one hair on her head.

‘Well,’ she said, ‘today I’m going to wear my hair in a pony tail.’

So she did, and she had a fun, fun day.

The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and noticed that there wasn’t a single hair on her head.

‘YAY!’ she exclaimed. ‘I don’t have to fix my hair today!’

Attitude is everything 🙂

    I so wish I was that wise and comfortable with my looks. I only can dream to feel beautiful or just not ugly one day. But this is great and I will continue to fight my inner critic to be more like that woman

      Katie I often think about how Jung said that what we resist, persists. I’m not even sure what the means in terms of dealing with the inner critic – I’ll need to think on it….

    I had a good friend who dealt with both RA and Lupus. In spite of her daily struggles she lived by this saying, “The Good Lord let me get up this morning so it is a good day. And if the sun shines it will be even better.” So no matter what the problem or attitude just remember and give thanks.

      Gramma, I so agree – a healthy dose of gratitude goes a long way towards fixing the way we feel about, and cope with, life’s “woes”. Thanks for sharing 🙂

    I Liked this, it truly shows that everyone is beautiful, that can only be taken away from you if you have low self esteem,keep smiling and be grateful because not everyone embraces the next day.
