Lessons Learned from Grandma

9 Comments 1283 views

Emotional blog reading NOT recommended in the morning. I now have to head to work with a Kleenex and puffy eyes. Steph from Back in Skinny Jeans shares with us lessons learned from grandma.

We get so engrossed in our “container”; how it looks, how much it weighs, how much it’s flawed, and on and on, that we forget that the body is really only one small part of our totality. It’s one thing to want to look good and take care of yourself, but it’s a whole other thing to let your body ruin your day, your attitude about yourself, or steal joy from you just because you don’t like the way it looks or because you don’t look pretty like the girls in the magazines or what you think other people consider attractive.

Click here to read the whole post. I had to share this link before heading out the door. Gotta run, have a great day!

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    Totally agree! Don’t let your attitude be ruined because of photoshoped girls in magazines! You go grandma!

    I’ve been working on not looking at my body as this separate part of myself to be fought and beaten into submission — I am all of me!

    Seriously, my granny is the most amazing woman I know. At 97, her spirit really will not be contained even by body that show the affects of time. It’s a tear jerker in a good way :-) Thanks for the linkie love :)
