I've had a lot of changes in my life over the past year, and some of the effects have manifested themselves physically. Quite bluntly, I've gained weight and am not happy with larger clothing sizes and what hides beneath (although I am very grateful for clothing and its hiding capabilities). Feeling the "weight" of this new insecurity, I thought this book would be a good way to help me feel better about myself.
I can't say that any of the concepts Michelle addresses are new, although sometimes it's good to hear what you know, but haven't been thinking about. I really appreciated the humor and personal stories that Michelle included throughout the book to drive her points home.
A main focus of this book is perspective, and looking at ourselves as our Heavenly Father sees us. Too often we set our own expectations too high, and we beat ourselves up about not meeting these expectations.
One of my favorite quotes came in a section about guilt.
"The laundry doesn't cry when it doesn't get folded. Neither should you."
I also really enjoyed the elevator analogy that reminded us that Heavenly Father doesn't give us more than we can handle-He helps us through those hard times in our lives.
Michelle's thought about importance also stood out to me.
"I do not have to be somebody 'important' to do important things. I simply have to be me and do what He asks of me."
I also liked the reminder about the Atonement:
"Through the power of the Atonement of Jesus Christ, we may choose the paths we take and the people we want to be."
Along those lines, I also appreciated this quote:
"As you exercise more faith in yourself and in Him, you will be amazed at the things He will accomplish in you and through you."
None of what I read is a direct tip on finding more energy after I get home from work, and making better choices in what I eat, but Michelle's reminders help me know that what I see in the mirror isn't as important as what I am inside. Heavenly Father doesn't think I'm worth less because I went up a pant size. He loves me, and is always there for me.
Whatever issues might be causing you to feel insecure, there is hope. And, you are better than you think you are!
