SELF ACCEPTANCE....
Your true
nature is neither good nor
bad. It is not found in
enlightenment or lost in
delusion. It is the
spotless beauty
of all creation. Who then
is self you are
accepting or not
accepting?

I put pictures of me like this because all my life I hated the way I looked. I do this to help heal me. I do this because I must love who I am and how I look. I have many flaws but must overcome them and love all of me. It has taken almost 42 years to love me so why not be proud of who I am and how I look.. Posted by Picasa

Mom and I think you have an amazing body lol we're rather very jealous of you! I understand what you're saying though ;)

even though people say great things about you, you have to change your state of mind...and it isn't an easy thing!

Oh and Mom wants to know what you eat? All she really wants to know is one day though..not the whole week ;)

Much Love!
Whitney

Hey Whitney-
Thanks for the comments. You are such a wise girl for your age. it's a good thing.

Tell Mom. I'm a vegan and I eat alot of fruits & vegs.
Yesterday I ate a vegan organic bar before I ran. Smoothie after with OJ hemp protien powder, almond butter and mixed berries.
2 apples, 1 grapefruit.
Dinner; Salad mixed greens with black beans , brown rice , salsa, avocado and 3 corn tortillas.
I usually eat more fruit. I also drink tons of water. I also have a couple cups of Yerba Mate tea.

Much love to you sister!

I think many of us battle same problems...I still can't take pictures like that:) May be because I don't look nearely as good as you do!

JeffO said...

Ditto with Bob.

And Olga doesn't need to look like you. There's more than one way to look good. Mom's rule!

Catra said...

Olga-
You're beautiful just the way you are!
XOXO,
Catra

Catra said...

Jeffo-
I agree with you!

Cat,
You should have Randy take you out - then it'll REALLY be like old times. Goth bands, leather pants, just no dope. :) Is the Underground still open ??
