December 8 – Beautifully Different.
Think about what makes you different and what you do that lights people up. Reflect on all the things that make you different – you’ll find they’re what make you beautiful.

oh Noooooo! It was bound to come along at some stage I suppose... but so soon?!? the... self... esteem .. blog... sigh... see I struggle with how my husband even puts up with looking at me .. so for me to see anything "beautiful", makes me cringe to even type it out! This is going to be a tough one! ...

How do I light people up??? I'm married to an electrician!

now... thank god thats over!!!
