Why We Just Can’t Go “Back”October 20, 2020
The idea of going back, brings no honour to who we are or what we become as we move forward.
I spent the better part of a decade fighting to go back. To the body and the ideals I held before growth, change, a personal evolution.
I disrespected my body.
I dishonoured her.
I, many times, looked for ways to erase her or the truths she held. A blur here. A virtual tuck there.
A proudly skipped meal.
I don’t show up today because I am better than my yesterday. I show up today becuase I am bettering my tomorrow’s by honouring myself each day.
Through growth, through grief.
We are moving.
We are in motion.
And most certainly not back.
