My grandma once said that the Lord gave us our bodies, and when we mistreat them by binge-eating and such, it is a sin unto Him.  Now, my grandma is a born-again Christian, and she lives by the Bible, but I believe she is on to something here.  Perhaps if we change our pespective and learn to appreciate and give respect to ourselves, we are not only honoring God, but we are also honoring and valuing ourselves.

[color=green]I know that when we stand before the mirror, we look at ourselves
as "big" wanting to get "smaller."  But when I read this quote, I
thought it may truly describe what is happening for each of us
on the INSIDE...

[i][b]"Then the time came when the risk it took to remain tight in a bud
was more painful than the risk it took to blossom."[/b][/i]
Anais Nin

Blossom, dear ones.

[color=navy]Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us most... And when we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

The quote by M. Williamson is one of my favorites!

BTW, thank you so much for starting this chain.....I love good quotes!  Here is another of my favorites:

Take the first step.....you don't have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.

Lillie, the quotations you share with everyone are truly inspiring and touching - they have certainly spoken to me.  How beautiful that you share of yourself in this way with others.

I think it's just as simple as the "Golden Rule"

I love all these quotes!!  If anyone's looking for a great book to read, check out "Calm My Anxious Heart....A Woman's Guide to Finding Contentment" by Linda Dillow.  Extremely uplifting!!
