t’s so challenging and yet beautiful to see this part of myself. I’m so thankful for this. It opened up doors of my mind and knocked down walls in my mind that I couldn’t have broke quite so rapidly if not.

This body has treated me with such respect. When I see this  I realize how soft I am. How beautiful it is to be so tender and capable of bruising and healing. I’ve worked my whole life to be this untouchable exterior. Whether it was boney and thin or tough and solid. This is a version of myself I am quite unfamiliar with and I’m just now beginning to fall in love with.
