Feeling Good

I wanted to share this picture Leah snapped of me the other day with her phone. She sent it to me and for the first time in, well, ever - I smiled. I liked the woman in the picture. I liked her sturdy frame. I liked her full face. I liked her round nose, 5'2" height, and 183lbs of muscle and muffin top. For years I wanted to be another, better, version of myself. So many body issues and weight obsessions. But the woman I see in the picture is really smiling and has a rugged feminine spark to her. It took 35 years to get there.
