Dear Body, I used to call you names, mistreat you, & cover you up in clothes that didn’t do you justice. I thought you had to be “perfect” before I could love you, & now I realize how foolish I was. Never did I think that I would embrace parts of you that I feared to most: my tummy, large thighs, stretch marks… the list is long, but my love for you is endless. Although others might not think you are beautiful, I do & you are the greatest love I will ever know. Thank you for carrying me through life, & what a grand life it has been.
I only compete with myself and work on how I can be better than I was yesterday.
