I wrote this blog post almost two years ago. I had gone through an emotional year after moving and gained more weight than I want to admit. I was down in the dumps. I found myself crying in my closet and was inspired to write the following. I am sharing again because I recently let go of the boxes of clothing spoken about in this post. I feel liberated. I feel free. I am learning to love me. My hope is that by sharing my story I might inspire others to love themselves regardless of their weight.

What am I going to wear now that I’m FAT again?
Deciding this I held my head up high knowing exactly what I’d wear today…
I’ll wear my smile – I’ve been blessed with many reasons to smile. Today I will think of those.
I’ll put on self-confidence – I can do hard things
I’ll wear my personality – life is more fun with a good dose of wit
I’ll wear influence – influencing my children and others to live their dreams
I’ll wear creativity – my greatest joys come through creating happiness, through good design or kind words
I’ll wear high self-esteem – I’m confident in myself
I’ll carry a purse of Pride – I’m proud of myself and my family
I’ll wear my invisible crown – I’m a child of God
After putting on this awesome wardrobe I left to church. And do you know what happened? It turned out to be a pretty great day. 🙂
