When I was young girl I felt short and chubby. I felt awkward and not very athletic. I recall noticing the girls that were pretty. Noticed their beautiful hair. Noticed how the boys always wanted to talk to them.

I’ve been journey through a path of greater self-love for about 10 years now, gradually redefining how I see my physical body and its purpose. And, today I wanted to share a beautiful passage with you that really shifted my perspective on our bodies and their purpose. I hope you’ll grant yourself a short 8 minutes to join me on this journey and see how lands on you today.
