“it is a shame for a woman to grow old without ever seeing the strength and beauty of which her body is capable.” -socrates

no one among us is perfect. we aren’t supposed to be, and others don’t expect it of us.

i tried real hard for years. only recently did i realize that embracing my flaws (or perceived flaws) makes me stronger, more human.

could i work to be skinnier, stronger, prettier, etc? of course i could try; but who cares? and how much energy do i waste in striving, wanting things to be different?

the true test is in loving ourselves fully, embracing our flaws and loving our strengths, of which ALL of us have many more than we realize – physical, emotional, mental, intellectual, spiritual.

we are all whole; only our limited minds tell us otherwise.
