Today is a particularly important one for me. When I look in the mirror, I didn’t hate what I saw. I didn’t think that there was a gross abomination staring back at me. I saw a beautiful young woman staring back at me with her sparkly blue eyes. I saw frizzy, curly hair framing a smiling face, and I didn’t think it ugly. I didn’t see any of the features as detracting or awful; I saw me.
To a lot of people this is probably silly, but to myself and others who have body image issues, this is the most wonderful thing to have happened to me in a very long time.
