After my sister died my entire body and spirit responded to such unbearable grief by unintentionally losing weight, to the point that my friends started to notice and wonder, that combined with other stresses building up made it that a few months ago I would try on clothes and I didn't even recognize myself bc I felt so depleted in heart and body. But in the last little while the stress has started to get smaller and as each day passes and I learn how to live with loss I feel less depleted, in all ways- and having said this... My long and rambling intention is just to say, love and own yourself! And definitely own your story! for bigger or smaller, better or worse, because we all go through tough times and change, and our bodies and spirits are so interconnected... How we feel inside does get reflected on the outside and all the best things seem to come from within your own self
