I saw this quote today and it got me thinking...
Everything I have been through, good and bad, has shaped me into the woman I am today. Some of it really freaking sucked. Some of it still makes me sick to my stomach to think about. But I wouldn't change it for the world.
I guess what I am trying to say is I'm thankful. I'm learning how to love and find beauty in all aspects of my past, present, and future. I know that everything happens for a reason and is shaping me into who I want to be. Everything I've gone through has just been a small price that had to be paid to get where I am today.
Here's to loving all parts of ourselves, even the ones that aren't the most beautiful, and choosing to embrace them for the roll they have played in making us who we are today.
