In Your Own Skin…

Beauty is about being comfortable in your own skin. It's about knowing and accepting who you are. #MondayMotivation

Beauty is being about comfortable in your own skin.  

It’s about knowing and accepting who you are.

There is nothing more beautiful than a person who fully embraces who they are.  That radiance shines bright and can leave a lasting impression on each person touched by it’s warm rays.

But to be perfectly honest with you, while this quote speaks volumes to me, writing about it has been extremely tough.  This one has been sitting in my drafts for weeks taunting me and my lack of comfort.

I used to be comfortable in my own skin…

So, does that mean I’m not beautiful?  Absolutely not!

If anything, coming across this quote, and letting it simmer in my soul for a bit, has taught me how beautiful I truly am.

[Tweet “Find words you like and let them simmer in your soul.”]

While I’m not comfortable in my physical skin, that uneasy feeling has forced me to get to know the parts of me I do love.  I’m learning who I am, what holds meaning to me and where my lines are.  Relationships are evaluated.  Skills and gifts are being refined.  The soul is being nurtured.

I’m getting to know and accept myself first.  Then we’ll make ourselves comfortable ;)

I hope you’re comfortable, or at least working towards it.  Just know you’re not alone and there is always someone who will listen.  Say hi or vent my way any time =)

  1. I love the idea of letting this simmer for a bit. I have seriously low self esteem and poor body image so I like the idea of identifying with this quote in time. Thanks for sharing on #CandidCuddles

  2. I’ve never felt comfortable in my skin and it holds me back from going to places like gyms or swimming because I’m irrationally worried people will be looking and judging.

    It’s madness because no one cares! It’s anot odd self limiting behaviour I’m trying to change so it doesn’t infect my kids as they grow up and so that I don’t miss out on fun things like swimming and swim parks.


  3. I used to be OK in my own skin and then I became a Mum. That has changed me. I feel less comfortable with the way I look now, however that is more than made up for in the way that I am as a human being now he is in my life. Thanks for giving me something to think about. #mg

  4. That’s a beautiful quote Sarah. I love what you have written about it – it’s not easy to be comfortable in our skin & there are definitely times in life when we lose that comfort. Fab advice. #candidcuddles
