Three Day Quote Challenge – Body Image – Day One

The one and only Bette A. Stevens nominated me for this challenge and I accept!  Be sure to check out her blog, books and connect because she is one in a million, for sure. https://4writersandreaders.com/2018/05/13/3-day-quote-challenge-day-one/

I choose to go with the theme of BODY IMAGE for all 3 days. As someone who has struggled for decades to be that “perfect presentation” I have learned to be more mindful of loving myself right where I am, instead of withholding that love until I reached a certain weight.

“To me, beauty is about being comfortable in your own skin. It’s about knowing and accepting who you are.” Ellen Degeneres

Rather than nominate, I leave it up to you to join the party!  Have fun and share from your hearts!



Colleen’s Weekly Tanka Tuesday Poetry Challenge Dignity & Success

Whispers behind hands

No self-respecting woman

Would be so brazen

For she found some happiness

Used her body for profit

Watched pot metaphor

Relationships parallel

Stunted growth result

Step back, allow for some space

Resist the urge to compare
