Most of us tend to focus on our imperfections rather than on our positive features. Okay, so let’s get real—we all have imperfections. Sure, no matter what age we are, or what our weight is, there are always things we can find to be critical of about our appearance.

I realize that I must stay connected with my profound accomplishment and to express my new-found confidence in the real me—the one I was created to be.
