Digging through a box of high school photos, I’m amazed by the strength and clarity of the memories produced.
Moments in time that I thought were trivial, insignificant, come back to me as if they were yesterday.
This picture is from a church event at Our Savior Lutheran. I was about 16, maybe nearing 17. It was shortly after my Confirmation ceremony, but before I entered senior year.
I’ve come a long, long way – but I’m glad to see that I knew happiness at any size. Look at that cheesy grin! Ha!
It just goes to show you: happiness isn’t based on size, it’s based on self. Find your happiness through loving yourself.
Bon appetit, my friends!
