I Hope I’m Measured By…..

December 27, 2019 in Lifestyle, Motherhood, Sentiments - No Comments

I hope I’m measured by the size of my heart…..and not the size of my pants.

I hope I’m measured by the amount of grit and grace I have…..and not the width of my hips.

I hope I’m measured by my level of courage….and not how small I can make myself.

I hope I’m measured by the amount of joy I bring to the world…..and not how tiny my waist is.

I hope that I’m measured by the size of my smile …..and not for the scars that weave across me.

I hope I’m measured by the amount of love I have for my family…..and not the silver stretch marks that dance across my skin.

I hope that I’m measured by how many times I’ve stood up after getting knocked down…..and not how I’ve tried to tear my own body down.

I hope that I’m measured by the impact I make on a person’s life…..and not the number on a scale.

I hope I’m measured by how much I celebrate my body……and not how much I hate it.

I hope that I’m measured by the good relationship I have with food…..and not the idea of a perfect body.

I hope I’m measured by the way I treat my body as a home……and not how I try to conform it to unrealistic standards.

I hope that I’m measured by the way I’ve taught my daughter to change the face of beauty…..and not by how I let my mind bully my body.

I hope I’m measured by the way that I teach my daughter that beauty is not a weight, a look, or a standard and not by how much I try to shrink my body down.

Because my body is a keeper of magic….so who cares how much it weighs, where it folds and curves, and has scars delicately sprinkled through it?  Why obsess over how it’s measured when I can be in awe of what a masterpiece it is?

Hi Y'all! I’m Jaime, a proud working mama, author, girl boss and wifey to an ultra-adorable husband. I am a huge book nerd, I drink coffee like my life depends on it, and run on dry shampoo and Amazon Prime. Leopard print is my favorite color. I am a story teller at heart and this blog is a virtual scrapbook of our crazy beautiful life. I'm a Type One Diabetic and our little warrior princess Callie is a lower limb amputee. By sharing how we’ve chosen to flourish in the garden we’ve been planted in, we hope you can take some small nuggets of hope, inspiration, and laughter. We are so grateful that you’ve found us—welcome to the fam. We embrace our perfectly imperfect lives and don’t let the doctor’s appointments, spreadsheets, speaking engagements, 10th birthday parties to plan, housework or date nights overwhelm us. Those things are just the beautiful reminders of all the blessings in our lives. Read More
