My little sweetie Mia. How can you be in a bad mood when you look at her? Well you can't. She was so sweet, like she could sense my sad mood. I took her out and snuggled with her. I started thinking about how I was feeling, and I remembered a few months ago I ran into a girl I graduated with, whom I haven't seen for 30 plus years. We were at a Jazzercise class and were talking about how we weren't as young as we were, our sizes had changed etc...and she said, well, you look exactly how you looked in high school. You were always so happy and fun. You were so pretty and still are. Dang!! If I could always see myself in some people's eyes I would never be in a "poor me" mood. When I look in the mirror, I DO NOT see the girl I was in high school, but that is only because we are our own worst critic. We pick apart our appearance as to what we want us to look like and be, not what others see. I remember after she told me that I was high on life for days. She's right!! I am fun and happy!! Why do I feel the need to let my failures dictate my mood. I just need to take a step back and get remember this when I'm feeling fat, ugly, and just plain yucky about myself. I'ts not always what's on the outside that people see. It's the whole package :)
