You know what feels good? Working on something and starting to feel the benefits.
I have been working on self-love for the past 3 years and have done some intense growth. It has been full of a lot of pain (we have to go through our pain, not around it, unfortunately.) I'm beginning to REALLY love and appreciate myself - inside and out. Golly I sure have hard days still sometimes (um hello weaning my fourth baby and the ensuing boob crisis? Whoa wasn't prepared for that). I also definitely struggle with other aspects of myself sometimes too. BUT overall I really do love ME! All of me. I have more days of self-love than of self-loathing so that's a win. I'm proud to be who I am and I am beginning to accept myself right in the present moment. That feels good!
So this photo of myself (can't call it a selfie cuz it doesn't seem fitting...) represents hope. Growth and healing are possible. I'm so glad.
Every day it is a journey and a practice, but how wonderful to begin to see the fruits of my labors and be able to use healing tools to aid me when I'm down, so that I can get back more quickly to self-love.
