Body Image: What do you see when you look in the mirror?


I saw this picture and just wanted to shout “Truth”! I am not sure about you but so often when I look in the mirror, there’s an internal conversation going on. I start comparing myself to what I see on facebook, instagram, twitter, magazines, tv, my friends and everywhere else there is someone to compare myself to. I think about how I fit in with what I see and what I don’t.

I know that comparisons are unhealthy but it was/ is almost a reflex. Daily I am having to remind myself that I need to love and appreciate all of me. I have so many conversations with people that have body hangups and the more I talk, the more obvious it is that we worry too much.

Simple truth… we

are amazing!

Hello! Welcome to the Plantain Periodicals blogs. The name stems from the kitchen moments I had with my friends at university cooking plantain and planning our lives together.

Hopefully you'll be entertained and also learn a thing or two. My main blog ad: My literature blog: NMx
