How to Love Your Body

 We are never taught how to love the temporary state of our bodies, but we forget: every state is temporary.  So, I start with a hastily crafted apology.

Dear Body,

I'm sorry for all the names I call you, and times you make me cry.  I know you want to do good by me.  So do I.  Truce? 

xoxo

In order to find peace with the current state of my body, I have to find some perspective, through the body dysmorphia crippling my rational mind. 

Finding Your Self, Finding Your Worth

Since college I have not lived in a single place for more than 11 months.  I moved between California and New York 4 times in the first 2 years after college, lived in New York City for a year, worked and lived in Massachusetts for a couple of summers and lived at home on Long Island with my parents for a year..  In June 2016 I decided to take a leap and move to Denver, CO where I knew 2 people and didn’t have any type of job lined up.  So why all the moving?  Jobs mostly.  Sometimes it was my choice to move and sometimes it wasn’t but I always thought that in order to move up you needed to keep moving.
