I spoke to a group of women a few weeks ago about healthy living and how it could influence our spirituality and improve our lives. It hit me how important it is for us to realize that yes, we should take care of our health and make sure to exercise, sleep, and try to eat healthy. But we should also realize that we don't have to be perfect and being healthy is just one aspect of our lives. I really hope that every woman understands that we can all be beautiful in our own way just by being the best we can be and keeping a smile on our face. Beauty isn't perfection. It's taking care of yourself, feeling good about yourself, and using that confidence to reach out and help and love others.
The old Mormonad poster I had hanging on my wall as a teenager is still true today:
Be Your Own Kind of Beautiful.
