Searching for the silver lining | Our Corner

I have this friend. She’s a fitness writer; beautiful, talented, strong and a bit cheeky. She happens to be the person that hooked me up with my first writing gig several years ago, so regardless of her many positive attributes, she will always be the person who gave me a chance. Needless to say, when she speaks, I listen. A couple of years ago, about this time, she hopped on Facebook and presented a challenge: take a negative aspect of your body image and turn it into something you are grateful for. For example, “I am grateful for my legs. Even though they jiggle more than I would like, they take me to work and play every day.” It occurred to me that this theory could be applied to all aspects of our lives.
