Discovering Extraordinary Grace in an Ordinary Life

Day 16…Backwards

I stand in front of the mirror and sigh. The same things stare back at me and I scan each flaw wishing it away. I look at each blemish, line, freckle. I see the circles and the shadows. But what if I could see something different?

We see our flaws


Take a moment today and look in the mirror. Before you start listing your flaws, make a choice to list only things about you that are beautiful. You may not have complete faith yet, but stand there with shaky knees and allow yourself to melt. All of those hard places that feel defeated and fed up. All of those sad places that feel like you will never change. All of those angry places that ball up your fists as tight as your heart. Let them melt today.

Choose to believe in beauty today.

Choose to believe that your beauty outweighs your flaws.

Choose to believe that you are worthy.

Keep making the choice.

I am emotional and logical. I am strong and dependent. I am a juxtaposition of head and heart exploring it all through writing. And in all my mixed-up ways I am loved. I'm here to tell you that you are, too. Just the way you are.
