Let's be real...

This body has been through so much. It came into this world addicted to drugs as a baby, it was abused at a young age and was tossed from foster home to foster home craving love and affection. It's struggled through an eating disorder and it's been through long days of anxiety and depression. It has housed four lives that never got to see life from the outside. It's been through the loss of these lives and has carried the heavy burden and pain both physically and mentally. It's about to go through extensive fertility treatment and will probably see more pain as time goes on.

Although I stand in front of this mirror today on day one of my new journey not liking what I see because I'm not at my BEST, I caught a glimpse of hope.

This body has been through SO much and yet it's still brought me to today. These arms give the best hugs, these legs get my through my toughest workouts, this smile has given people hope and this heart no matter how broken it's been, has given me life. I might not feel or look my best, but I'm on my way there.

Here's to new beginnings✨
