“One day you will look back and be glad you chose to be faithful. You will be glad you gave your everything, even before you knew what would happen. You’ll be glad you chose to love and were fearless in doing so, because you will be able to look back and see how it helped you grow.” - @morganharpernichols •
I took this picture this afternoon on a whim. The light was good, I was feeling a lot better after my post run shower. The busy day was winding down. Ya know - all good things.
A couple hours later I went back and looked at it again and I noticed more. I noticed how strong I looked. I noticed the joy in my eyes, and the confidence in my smile.
I know I’ve talked about this a LOT, but like so many of us, I didn’t take selfies. I wore long sleeves in the summer and opted to stay inside. I didn’t like what I saw, and didn’t want to put myself into a situation where I could be mocked.
But now, today, I looked at a picture I took in the spur of the moment and realize how grateful I am that I invested in myself. Even when I struggled I knew I would see it through. Even now, while I look towards whatever the future has in store, I know it’s going to be good. I have the tools, and pieces I need to make it so.
I’m proud of my crooked smile, my strong shoulders, the legs that can carry me on a 4 mile run after #deathbysquats at OTF this week. I’m grateful. I’m happy.
I hope that, even if you’re struggling, or if you’re waking up with a smile on your face, you can find one thing your glad you’re fighting for. Be it weight loss, a new meal you cooked, or the fact you got out of bed today - YOU did that. And that’s something you should be proud of. 🧡
