I was laying here at looking at my legs and found myself picking on my giant bug bite and scars/veins from knee surgery back in high school.
Honestly, my first thought was ewww. Then I realized each of these "imperfections" tell a story... and those stories are all mine.
I had some awesome times and met tons of friends playing soccer. Some of them (including my coach) even train at our gym now... 20 years later. .
Besides, I'm able to run, deadlift and squat, which is incredible considering the work I had done.
As far as the giant bug bite... I played outside with my kids a ton this weekend. That bug bite meant we were outside having fun and spending quality time together. Plus it prob means one less bug bite for my kids. I'll take it.
Perspective is a beautiful thing, especially when it hits you right as you need it.
