“How grateful I am to be in the place I’m in today”

“How grateful I am to be in the place I’m in today”
Today I was going through some old photo albums and came across the photo on the left from 10 years ago...

Last week I went rollerblading with a friend who took the photo on the right and my initial thought was, “ehhh. could be better” before I forgot about it and moved on with my day. 

A little perspective goes a long freaking way and this memory served as a really incredible reminder how grateful I am to be in the place I’m in today. Physically. Mentally. Emotionally. Spiritually.

I became a student and scientist of my body and how it works over the last decade (sometimes that was an easier undertaking than others) and its for sure provided the most impactful lessons of my life. And even with how much I’ve worked on self love and self acceptance, if I’m not aware, it’s easy to go down the rabbit hole of doubt, insecurity, and judgement...

For a moment I wanted to cringe and hide that old picture but it’s Ciji 2009 that I get to thank for the life I live now. It was her challenges, her struggles, and her journey that led me to exactly where I am today. And for that, I’m damn grateful!
