Beautifully and Magnificently Made

These words came rushing out of me after i did my post on reminiscing and reading Onada's latest post:

Look at me
Every inch of this chocolate temple is beautiful
For so long i defined my sense of worth
Measured my dignity and price by numbers on labels and scales
No more

The quest for weight loss is no longer an obsession
But is taken in stride
Not because i think i will be better if i was smaller
But because the quest for perfect health remains
But this post isnt about that

Its about realising that i am beautiful
Every inch of me is a treasure to behold
Add to that my confidence and personality
I radiate beauty

And its not my attempt to be vain
Because i realise i was made in God's image
I realise that i need to be thankful that i can walk and run and sit
With no assistance from anyone
Or any device

I am beautiful
Every inch of me is perfection

Yes Uzo.. by God! You are beautiful.
Every single bit of you, from the top of your head to the tips of your toes. Even your words are beautiful they demand and command attention and admiration.

(smile) Yes Uzo.
You are beautiful.

Love this... I love it when people appreciate who they are, where they are and their circumstances.

I sometimes catch myself spending uneccessary time on not being satisfied...

I especially love this: " I realise that i need to be thankful that i can walk and run and sit
With no assistance from anyone
Or any device"

I needed to read this post right at the moment I did...
