My disgust for my own hair impaired me from loving my son's at first. It didn't stop me, but I had to let go of the feeling of dislike for my cow licks before I allowed myself to see the beauty of my baby's cow licks.
My thoughts on this? When I love myself, I love others better. The Savior said, "Love thy neighbor as thyself." If everyone applied that in this day and age, there would be NO love. Everyone would walk around saying stuff like "Your nose is too big." Your hair is totally out of place." "You can't do anything right." Would you say that to a friend? A loved one? A random stranger on the street? NO! So go do yourself a favor. Next time you look in the mirror and see that your hair is totally where it shouldn't be, thank your hair for having a spirit of adventure, and be happy! Love yourself! Tell that inner critic to take a hike, and never come back! Remember that you are a child of God, and that He sees you the way I see my son, an amazing being of light and beauty!
I was thinking about this, because today I had a bad hair day, and I was spiraling into all these negative thoughts, one spawned another, and I had to stop it. :D hahaha so I did! Instead, I thought, AND I JOLLY WELL LOVE HAVING HAIR!!! In fact, I'm going to quit messing with it. I will let my hair do what it would like! And here I am blogging about it. Some days are easier than other days to love yourself, but don't give up! You are lovable every day!
