Today, with my average stomach and visible cellulite, I have more confidence and self-esteem than I ever have. I am in love, I own a thriving business, I have amazing friendships, I serve others, I invest in personal development and I realize that everything I need, all of the happiness I desire, is already inside of me.
My personal relationships are great, I'm doing alright professionally, I live in a great city, I'm getting married soon. Things are not bad. It's a new feeling, this one I'm feeling, and I'm pretty sure it's something close to peace, but not quite. I still struggle with accepting my body, but not in the same way I used to.
My ass. I always figured what I couldn't see didn't concern me. But apparently other people have noticed. Men have noticed. Really attractive men have noticed. Really attractive younger men have noticed. As a post-50 woman, I've been told I have a great ass more times this year than in my entire life. From the way things are going, I guess you could say my ass is having a landmark year.
