beautiful

As I was running in to use the girl's restroom in between classes this morning (gotta beat the kids to the big stall!), I noticed one of the girls standing at the mirror primping.  When I went into the stall I could hear her say "I just feel beautiful today!"  And I thought to myself wow, when was the last time I looked into the mirror and thought that?  Instead I tend to focus on the extra fat around my stomach or the fact that I am over due for a haircut and color.  Why?  Why do we do this to ourselves?  And what can we do to change it?  Next time, I want to peer into the mirror with the little girl and say, "why, yes you do honey, and I do too!"

Such a great little story. I think more of us could do with being a little more like that little girl.

I remember trying to get into the big stalls in the kindergarten hallway at my mom's old school. She teaches 5th grade, but I would run copies for her and the closest bathroom was down the kindergarten hall. The small ones were so cramped!
