Owning The Body I Once Hated

My journey towards self-love has been made of trial and error and, although I always hate to face a setback, today I’m thankful to each one of them, because they brought me not the lessons that I wanted but the ones I needed to evolve and embrace a higher understanding of what self-love is. Today I know that self-love includes owning, honouring and loving the body I have, and more specifically the body parts I used to hate: arms, chest, hips and legs. It’s about being proud of them as they are instead of wishing they were different.
