Last chance.

Do you remember the nursery rhyme, “Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never hurt them.”? We know that is not always true. I’m taking a proactive approach with my osteoarthritis by attending a Tai Chi class.


Words do hurt.
Words can hurt.

A gentleman complained to the instructor about the obese people attending Tai Chi class while sitting next to me. It led me to think negatively about myself.


Laptop Sticker

He interrupted me when I was speaking to the instructor. It was clear that I was insignificant in his eyes based solely on my weight.


Scripture Card

I wanted to say something negative back. Yet I did not, because words can hurt.

It did bother me for the rest of the day. I tried to keep the negative thoughts out of my head such as maybe I am unworthy because of my weight.

Later in the day the mail carrier delivered my Loved + Blessed Box. I read this mini poster later in the evening.



Loved + Blessed thoughtfully included this journal for encouraging quotes, scriptures and positive affirmations.


A ribbon to mark your place.

I have much to record for days when the negative thinking appears.

    I love how emotionally available you are. People often say hurtful things and it does sting. No matter how much we pretend it doesn’t. I can say guy was a jerk all day (he actually really is) but you are so good of a person you stopped yourself from inflicting any words of pain back. You are a better woman than I, as you likely smell better…

      That might be the secret! Don’t short-change yourself. You’re a good person.

    Great review. I’ll never understand mean people. This box changed my life at a time when I was incredibly depressed. I will be a subscriber as long as the box is available.

      Susie, thank you for sharing. It seems like the right box arrives when we need it the most.

    wow. wow. wow.
    This post was so meaningful thank you for posting it.
    I am going to bookmark this post in my iPad so I can go back to it.
    FYI: I am just a christian now raised roman catholic. I am not really into religion (I believe that we are all God’s children kum ba yah), hence, I would not get this subscription but everything in this particular subscription box is inspirational (as are you). Thank you for subscribing to it.

    Sub Bella, you are a very special kind of wonderful!!

    I’m glad this box came for you when it did. Negative words can really dig at me too, and I think my own mind snowballs them. Try to remember that are many people who love and care for you because you are YOU! In real life and in blog life too : )

    When people get mean like that it really says more about them than it does about you.

    Keep your head up, little chickadee <3 <3

      Ditto – Lil Conure said it perfectly.
      I wish negative comments didn’t affect me, but they do… And my sometimes low self esteem blows it out of proportion. For example, I know this isn’t the point of your post but Bella, I hope you know that you are not “obese”! I understand that you’re not at the activity & fitness level that you used to be due to osteoarthritis but from the pictures I’ve seen, you still look great – curvy & beautiful.
