More 30 Days of Self Love Catch-Up!

I have not forgotten the amazing 30 Days of Self Love.  It is almost over, and I have not posted on my blog about most of them.  I absolutely love the concept, so I am going to start catching-up.  Enjoy!

Idolizing our bodies (check out Tina's post here).
What ways have you put too much emphasis on your body?  How can you change that?
I have always been good at picking out the little imperfections and thinking negatively about them.  What I should do is focus on how they make me unique. 

Revel in your imperfections.  Be entertained by your problems, and know that once you looked ahead, and wished you were where you are now.  And once again you will look back and smile. ~Unknown

Perspective (check out Tina's post here).
How do you witness the power of perspective in your life?  Do you currently face something where your perspective could make a difference?
My dad loved to play Devil's Advocate and make sure that I always considered others point of view.  I think this is most important in every type of relationship in life, because trying to view situations/arguments/ideas through other people's perspectives expands your own. 

Being happy doesn't mean that everything is perfect.  It means that you've decided to look beyond the imperfections.  ~Unknown
 I had the blues because I had no shoes until upon the street, I met a man who had no feet. ~Denis Waitely
Perfection (check out Tina's post here).
In what things do you try to seek perfection?  Why do you even want it?  How does perfection actually hurt that area of your life?  What would letting go of the hope of perfection do for you?
I am by nature a perfectionist, and it is a constant form of stress when everything does not go perfectly.  Stress does not go well with confidence and happiness, so I am working on not caring how perfect something is.  I'd rather focus on how I can complete something to the best of my abilities and feel good about it. 


Striving for excellence motivates you; striving for perfection is demoralizing. ~Harriet Braiker
Certain flaws are necessary for the whole.  It would seem strange if old friends lacked certain quirks. ~Goethe

Gifts of the body 2 (check out Tina's post here).
Take a few moments to think about 3 new things you appreciate about your body.
(1) My hair.  It makes me... well... Me!  I tried straightening it a couple times.  Not only did I look sick because it was so thin, but I did not look or feel like myself.  I love my quirky crazy curly hair!  It makes me feel unique.  (2)  My butt.  That's right!  I said it.  It catches me when I fall, looks good in jeans, and is fun to shake when I'm dancing around the living room.  (3)  The shape of my ears.  I typically would say that "I hate my ear", but they run in my dad's side of my family.  It is just something else that reminds me of him. 

The body is an instrument, the mind its function, the witness and reward of its operation. ~George Santayana
