Ah yes, an excuse to be vain. I have broad shoulders that help round out my figure and put on the facade that I am muscular or at least athletic. I don’t have biceps to show off, but I am very proud of my muscular calves. I have a good set of ears; they have the ability to hear our pick out even the slightest of things, most of the time.
In doing this, I was reminded of this Dove campaign.
It’s hard to describe yourself, let alone positively. Even my statements above were written in the non-negative sense. When I was younger, I remember I didn’t like my name, nor did I like the sound of my own voice. I didn’t like that I was super skinny. And then later I wouldn’t like that I was chubby. Now that I’m grown up and everything and perspectives have changed, this was a nice reminder not to be too hard on myself.
I also remember Victor Chayasirisobhon’s opening words during his first sermon during high school camp of 2011. He said and repeated a couple times “YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL!” Which was cool, because I think people need to hear that more. It was obviously powerful since that was what all the kids talked about during cabin time that night.
