Pesky little things numbers, aren’t they?
We place so much value on what a few digits can tell us and yet they truly tell us nothing at all.
I will be the first to admit I become obsessed with the number on the scales all too quickly at times and the number can either comfort me or send me into despair.
I haven’t been happy that the number on the scale seems to have increased and not dropped at all lately. I usually let it dictate my happiness but there’s more to life than numbers.
A friend pointed out my ‘amazing ass’ the other day and so I had a little think.I put together two pictures one from this week and one from 5 weeks ago…here it is…
Same beautiful smile, same happiness. The only difference was the number on the scales.
But look at the change…not only have my legs gotten more muscular I think I look healthier. Now I’m not saying I was unhealthy in the first picture but I do think I look stronger as a whole in the second.
The numbers have dictated my happiness in the past but that’s all they are…numbers..and I’m worth more. They don’t reflect true values such as friendships, work or even that muscle you’ve clearly gained in the gym!
So chin up and ignore what those numbers tell you. It’s only a digit and only you get to decide what it means.
