I don’t want to be skinny I want to be strong.
Strength is my guiding aspiration, both mentally and physically.
To be strong enough to withstand
To be strong enough to let go
To be strong enough to succeed
To be strong enough to fail
To be strong enough to win
To be strong enough to lose
To be strong enough…to be weak
When I was younger, I didn’t feel this way. Life felt outside of my control and my body manifested what my heart and will could not:
I was thin, I was frail, I was weak.
It was as if my body decided to express what my heart could not bare to.
I am so happy to have shed that, to live comfortably in my own skin…so much so that I fear I make others uncomfortable at times…traipsing through public body bared to all!
But, I earned it!
Are strong, strong enough to be weak without being defeated.
I survived…and I thrive.
