I don't think acceptance is about comfort or happiness or pleasure.
Maybe fertile ground for cultivating those experiences. A few steps past tolerance and even further from just survival.
Staring peace in the face, and that still feels like another decision or two away. Acceptance is more of a meditation, aligning with the present moment, flow.
I turned 30 this year. Now, instead of dreaming of another body, I dream with this one. We investigate movement and adornment and intimacy. We still argue about weight, but focus more on food medicine.
We stopped having sex for validation. I see myself.
I see the reflection of my soft heart in my soft curves and I think maybe that is enough. - Bree Gant
