There are things we have done to ourselves that cannot be undone overnight or with a quick fix. When we make a decision to do something good for ourselves, each good step is a step in the right direction. Results are not always seen right away, but give it time, love the journey you are on and love yourself in the process.
In a world that relies on quick fixes, be it in meals, weight loss, hair growth and sooooo many other things, we must be patient with ourselves and not compare who we are to the next person. We are all created to do something different and if we don't do what we need to who will. You are who you are and when you find an area you need to grow in - work on it and be aware of the progress you make from day to day!
Love your neighbor as yourself, but first you have to love you in the process.
Have a great day - look in the mirror and say "I LOVE YOU" (smile as well and believe it!)
