look in the mirror and love what i see

“All my life I feel like I’ve been growing into myself. Finally, I feel grown.”

I’ve never really hated anything about my appearance. I never picked myself apart the way a lot of people I know/have known, do. I always made friends easily, I could and can always make people laugh. I have a loving family, and an amazing boyfriend of 3 years. Yet, until this stage in life, until right here and right now…I never looked in a mirror and thought, “yeah, it’s how I want it to be”. I don’t know if it was always an aesthetically pleasing thing I was after, or just the feeling of being comfortable with the PERSON I saw in the mirror. Recently in life though, this has all become much more clear. I have a purpose, I have structure, I have reason for everything I do. I’ve never been depressed, constantly saddened, or otherwise unhappy…but never fully me. I think it truly takes a strong person…no, a wise person to look at everything as a growing experience. Good or bad, everything that happens teaches you something and pushes you one step closer to the person you will become. I have quite enjoyed becoming fully myself. Growing into myself :) I love the person smiling back at me in the mirror, and I hope that never changes.
