Photo & Prompt Challenge: Day 20

Today’s Challenge: My biggest insecurity

If you’d asked me this about 5 years ago, I could have spouted off a list of responses to this. Now, though? I’m pretty comfortable with who I am. I am definitely out of shape, so I guess my weight could be one… but I have a husband that never makes me feel anything less than beautiful.  So although I want to, plan to, and need to get in shape, I’m not insecure about it most of the time.

I don’t know when it happened, but sometime, somehow, something just clicked and I realized that the people who love me and who matter most to me aren’t going to be judgmental of things I could be insecure about. If someone is, then frankly their opinion probably isn’t worth worrying over to begin with. I’m not trying at all to say I don’t have faults or areas to improve upon – I’m sure there are many. I try to be a kind and thoughtful person as much as I can, and to worry about how I treat others instead of how others see me – beyond that, the rest is gravy.

    You’re really lucky that you’re comfortable in your skin. I envy you that so much! I’m not at ALL!!! I tried so hard not to pass on my own hangups to my kids though and whew! They are both very confident people. :)

      It’s so funny that you say that because I read your blog and think, “Wow, what a woman!” I would never guess that you’re not confident. You’ve got the goods to back up the confidence, for sure! ;)

    A wise man once wrote:

    Be who you are and
    Say what you feel
    Because those who mind
    Don’t matter
    And those that matter
    Don’t mind.

    Be the best YOU you can be, and everything else will fall into place.

    Great post! I honestly feel the same way. Sure, there are things about myself that I could improve on, but I also think that the people that know me and love me would never judge me for those things, and therefore I don’t worry about them. :-D

    I don’t know what I would say about being insecure…. I feel pretty comfortable and confident. I don’t like my mid section – want to tone up that had a baby belly some day but I am comfortable in my skin. Toning up may be more for health reasons than anything else for me.

      That’s exactly how I am – I want to be healthy for me and for my family.

      I used to be that way too – don’t you wish you could go back and tell your high school self not to worry so much about what others think? I’ve thought that before!
