When this photo showed up in my feed a few days ago, it made me smile...not because of my expression, but because of seeing how far I have come since then. I like to think of myself as a body positive activist. However, even I have times where I doubt myself and pick myself… Continue reading Why you should not be ashamed to love yourself
