Tonight I sat with good friends, eating caramel apples and talking about lots of different things. We spent a few minutes talking about our saggy buns, stretch marks, and broad shoulders. We talked about wishing we could just let go of what we think we are supposed to be and just be what we are. I wish we could see ourselves like we see our best friend. We'd always give ourselves the benefit of the doubt. We'd see beauty in flaw. We'd speak kinder. We'd high-five ourselves after a really hard workout. We'd be gentle. We'd love ourselves more (broad shoulders and all).
I think that's the way we should be seen.
