It’s interesting when looking a photo of your self natural. I have spent a pretty good chunk of my adult life wanting to fix the way I look. Namely through dieting and now overcoming a binge eating disorder. I have shut out what other people have seen and have dieted my spirit into a fraile piece of something that I used to be. However, as I emerge from the place that I have been in the past two years I am beginning to not only see my physical beauty…but my spiritual beauty radiating. I am learning that my weight has nothing to do with how I am perceived by myself and others. Rather, it’s how I present and love myself. Knowing that there’s a little voice inside of me that wants to be at peace with myself, food, exercise and life keeps me going everyday to overcome the negative thought patterns which riddle my mind. More though, I keep finding the strength to find my inner beauty. The natural essence of who I have always been and who I am becoming.
