Philharmonic Friday: In This Skin
I Am Worthy
This song is such an uplifting message for when I feel all bloaty and puffy. Sometimes I feel like I am not meeting “the” expectation of what bodies are supposed to look like.
I love my eyes. My hair is something I’d covet if it belonged to someone else.
But these curves? My dress size? Sometimes I struggle with these and wonder if others are pointing and laughing inside.
Negative body image is such a self-esteem deflator. And why? Honestly, I am the woman who lives in this skin — but I am not defined by one lump, bump, or curve.
My worth is in ALL of me. And I am beautiful in this skin…
When I doubt it, I play this song by Jessica Simpson and I sing along at the top of my lungs.
