Stand in front of your bathroom mirror and give yourself permission to stare. Pause any stream of unconsciousness that nests itself in your thoughts. Don't think, just stare.
Study what you see in front of you. Notice your unsymmetrical eyes or the scar on your chin or the un-plucked eyebrow strand, but do not let a single negative or critical thought contaminate this moment. Breathe in. Breathe out. And then, close your eyes and repeat this verse to yourself:
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. — Psalm 139:14
Say those words aloud over and over again until the words begin to run into each other and sound all funny. Say those words aloud until the truth of it seeps into every heart beat and you begin to actually believe it.
And whatever you do, please, please, don't ever stop believing these words.
