This Tuesday brings a rare body appreciation post.

I’m definitely happier with my body than I was 2 years ago, when I started this blog. Sure, I can stand to lose 10-15 lbs (maybe more), but I appreciate what I have now. I’m stronger and grateful for what I have now, and excited about the upcoming changes that will be made.

I’ve also accepted that I’m never going to be tiny. I’m not and that’s okay. Instead of focusing on being small, I’ll focus on being strong. I’m happy and excited about that, and that’s lovely because it’s ABOUT TIME. 

…I am also working on smiling in photos. this is hard. THIS IS HARD.

(I had to filter the heck out of this photo because I was too lazy to turn on all of my lights. Sorry.)
