The scars on my hands and legs
Remind me that I’m a fighter
That I can make it through anything
That I can survive the worst and make my way back
The stretch marks on my body
Remind me that I’m an adult
And not all change is bad
Because this one sure wasn’t
The marks on my knees
Remind me of a time when I was younger
When I wasn’t afraid to fall down
Because at least I was walking
The dark circles under my eyes
Remind me that to achieve your goals
You have to work night and day without stopping
Because in the end it will be worth it
The blisters on my feet
Remind me that even though you may take the wrong path
Eventually you’ll find the right one
You just have to keep walking
This post is about loving your flaws and not letting them get to you. Every mark on your body has a story behind it and you need to embrace them.
