Wise Word Wednesday


I saw this on Pinterest and just had to use it for a Wise Word Wednesday quote.  It actually gave me chills.  I couldn't believe this to be more true.  I have often met people with low self-esteem or who are body-conscious and wondered why they engaged in such self-hate.  Then I met their mom or dad and it was all clear because the parent was constantly putting themselves down or questioning their kids' decisions.
Or, someone who seemed so at peace with themselves and their parents are exactly the same.  
We really are shaping our little ones and their self-esteem, as well as their prejudices or beliefs.  
I have no idea how my mum did it, but no matter my weight, I always feel like I look good.  When I look in the mirror I like what I see.  Yes I have bad hair days or frumpy days, but it never affects my self-worth.  When I think about losing weight it's more for health than aesthetic.  I think a huge part of this is that I never heard my mum complain about her weight or how she looked.  She always gave me compliments and instilled in me a belief that I am super awesome:)  
I can only hope to pass this down to Thomas.
