I saw that person today

Thursday, August 16, 2012

So, over the weekend with the help of my dad, my boyfriend and I redecorated our living room. We got a new t.v. stand, we moved our couch and we put up some mirrors to make it look bigger since we live in a pretty tiny house. An added bonus of putting the mirrors up is I can see myself when I workout now. Often times when I look in the mirror, even though I have come so far, I see my stretch marks, my loose skin, excess fat that I feel like I need to lose, but today while I was doing my workout I watched myself in the mirror. I saw my muscles, my form, and most of all I saw my determination and strength. I saw the person that I have always wanted to be, the person I knew was in there. I saw how hard I was working out, the sweat just dripping everywhere and I smiled. I smiled because I finally looked in the mirror and saw me. Yes, I do have stretch marks, yes, I do have loose skin, and no, I'm not completely ripped with muscle, but I worked hard for what I do have, and all of those things are reminders of who I once was. Reminders of how far I've come. I am fierce, I am determined, and I am beautiful. So, if you get the chance, look in the mirror and try to see that person. The person you know you can be.
