"What I am is good enough if I would only be if openly".
I was reading a friends blog, how she had tried on at least 23 dresses in one afternoon to try and find one to wear to a special occasion. To protect this person's identity I have changed a few details but the story is still the same. Every dress was wrong. Either she did not feel right in it or others did not like the outfit on her. It made me think. Now I know this person and I think she is beautiful and has a good figure. But the dresses made her feel frumpy. I wanted to tell her in person how beautiful inside and out she really is. We all have issues about what we look like. Hey, every time I get clothes out of my wardrobe I am reminded of my size. I am an 18, I have to wear size 20 or 22 pants and skirts to accomadate my tubes etc. Nothing makes you more depressed when you buy clothes in the "BIG" section. Which is probably why I don't buy clothes very often. But I did go out last thursday and I bought two tops, yes they were size 18, yes that is my size. Yes I wish I was a size 14 or a 12 but I am not. I am me. So accept me for who I am. I am beautiful on the inside and outside as my daughter keeps on telling me. And after 26 years even though I am no longer the size 10, I am still the girl of my husbands dreams.
