When Tired Takes Over

Life is exhausting and I would like a break. Just a few days. I'm not in a place where that is an option right now. And it sucks. Sometimes we have to let it suck and linger for a while - but it sucks. Tired has taken over. That's just where I am.

Summer Body Blues

Every year in April, I find myself franticly trying to shape up and lean out my perpetually out of shape body. I'm talking - thought consuming, calorie counting - frantic. It tears me apart to think that I have to bare parts of my body that I NEVER want to bare to the general public... this is in no way limited to wearing a bathing suit, my friend! Shorts, tank tops, sleeveless dresses.... this is all HORRIFYING to me!! No joke. Needless to say: I am continually asking myself "Am I good enough?". I would even go as far to state that I cannot let myself feel beautiful unless I have reached my goal. This, my friend, is a lie.

The earthly standard of beauty, barely skims the surface of what beauty truly is! I have to remind myself that beauty is not a figure, sharp features or olive toned skin - BEAUTY IS LOVE. Beauty comes from within and bursts into light! It resonates in our words and seeps out of our pores. It comforts. It protects. It strengthens and uplifts!

Let that sit with you as we quickly approach this season of summer - bathing suits and all. I want to tell you that I will continue working out, but I will not let it consume me! Health is the goal - not "beauty".

Thanks for joining me in my random, profound thought! I sure know how to lather on the cheese factor, no?!
