I see changes happening over the years. Bones grow and then the rest of my body catches up. I turn from a child to a tween. I think I know it all but I don’t. I am 5’7″ in the 6th grade and barely 100 pounds. I love it. I love growing up. I love the sense of freedom and independence I receive. I transitioned from a child to a teen. I grew breasts and found that boys noticed more than they should. I reveled in my innocence until the day I turned 18. I haven’t always loved my body. My body hasn’t always loved me. I have been 100 pounds and I have been 300 pounds. The trick I have found is loving myself, as I am, right now. When I am happy, I look great, I feel great and I am healthy. So the trick is to be happy and make your life what you want it to be. I love being me.
