right now, this very moment, you’re more beautiful than you’ve ever been or will ever be— no other you has the living and breathing capacity that exists in the present moment. give yourself grace and appreciation for getting to this point in time, for all you’ve been through and all that you will go through. your body is here and now, your mind is it’s captain, direct it towards a place of gratitude and love. you are here and you are awake, own that truth. the present is all we are guaranteed, so live it with intention. step into who you were created to be, someone who is alive and focused on what is in front of you and the God who lives within you.
I struggle with thinking I’ll love myself more when I’ve reached a certain fitness goal or when I learn more about life. the truth though, is that “me” doesn’t exist... the me right now does. has my nose gotten larger with age, have my hips gotten wider, have I gotten more gray hairs? yes to all of those. but I’ve also gotten so much wiser, more patient, more open minded. I’ve learned that I carry the Holy Spirit within me like a superhero carries her power. the me right now is enough because of these truths.
most importantly, the me right now exists and is enough because of Divine Love. the you that exists right now is more beautiful that you ever have been or ever will be. you are here and you are loved.
