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!"
