One day you’ll see. The moments of your life that you’ve missed. The memories that were made to light up your mind with smiles in vivid colour. But instead, they are dull. They were dulled. By a mind that could never truly live in that moment, too consumed by the ever present mirror forcing your reflection to the forefront of your thoughts. You cannot truly live with that mirror, looming over all that you do, and all that you are. One day you’ll see, that it was inside you all along – the power to smash the mirror into pieces too small to ever pierce through your self esteem again. One day you’ll see, that you could have lived unburdened by lies about your worth residing in your reflection. That you could have laughed with your whole body shaking. That you could have devoured every bite without shame. That you could have lived every moment, for yourself. One day, you will see. And I can’t think of a better day than the one you’re living right now. 💜💙💚🌈🌞

I asked my dad to take the first picture 7 years ago, I’d gained about 10 pounds and I wanted to show the world that I was all better. That there was nothing wrong anymore. In my eyes I was chubby again, so I could see my friends, go back to school, not be that girl with the eating disorder anymore. I want this to show that our eyes lie to us. We can’t see ourselves clearly when we look in the mirror because we’re viewing through a filter of every ‘perfect’ body we’ve ever compared ourselves to. Every flawless picture of photoshopped beauty. What we’re told we SHOULD look like becomes so ingrained that it blinds us to how beautiful we already ARE. In our minds we imagine ourselves without that roll, without that cellulite, without this, without that, less and less and less. We diminish ourselves until there’s nothing left. No confidence, no self worth, no idea that we are all so incredibly breathtaking just as we are. If we could only see ourselves clearly. 🌈🌞💜
