Getting bigger isn't bad.
There. I said it. I've never believed it before (about myself) and lately I've been struggling to positively accept the number of dresses and shirts that have stopped fitting over the past couple of months. My arms and shoulders and back have changed and, while I know it's physically a good change and my upper body strength has increased, it's hard to not feel like it's wrong.
And so I remind myself today that even in those moments when we aren't "feeling" ourselves or are having hangups about our bodies, that doesn't mean we can't still love ourselves. Acknowledge the moment and move on.
Be more. And that's not about size, that's about mindset. Love yourself wherever you're at and all the points along the way.
