Self Love

Written by Nadira Shirlonna

I take it all in,

my cellulite, my stretch marks,

my flabby parts. I take it all in, the

numbers on the scale, my graying hair,

my pale skin. I take it all in, my crooked

teeth, my worsening sight, my hooded

lids. I stand by the mirror, I’m looking

at me, my reflection isn’t perfect,

but I take it all in.

  4. Very relevant for an old chap like me who does not recognize himself in the mirror in the morning. Still new to the blogging scene myself, but this struck me unexpectedly, and thank you. I guess that’s what it’s all about without being overly simplistic hopefully.

    Cheers and thank you for liking some of my stuff too 😀
