I always struggled to see myself as beautiful. I was told my face was pretty but it never went past that. Having hypothyroidism caused by Hoshimotos has made major changes on my body and my weight often fluctuates, it’s made it that much harder to love on myself but then I’m reminded of my mind and heart and see how beautiful that is. I see how every curve of my body is gorgous and is worthy of love. That all of me is worthy of affection, and that is not limited to other people. I love my body. It allows me to run and adventure and by grace get up every morning.
