Fitness & wellness world judges positive change by the exterior

It's not uncommon in the fitness & wellness world to judge positive change by the exterior. For example, this image is of a strong & flexible bellydancer in a challenging balancing position. I'm roughly 8-9 years younger here, easily 20lbs lighter, and injury free. Yet if you took a look into my mind you'd find a wild child that was desperate to be successful & loved and had zero coping skills for dealing with pain & trauma.
 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
 Fast forward to current day: I'm still strong & flexible but way softer, and am nurturing my broken leg & bruised heart back to health day by day. However, if you cracked my soul open, you would find a woman who no longer hides her head in shame with regrets of the past or is consumed with unbearable loss. You would find a soul who finds pride in being a good friend, true to my word and being able to shimmy once a day. I am now a Serene Goddess & I am convinced the best is yet to come! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
 Anyone else riding this rollercoaster? I'm guessing we all are. Here's to joining hands yet simultaneously throwing them up into the air. 🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽

I too, try to pride myself as a good person and a good friend and I too, have my ups and downs and have my fair share of bruises, burns and heart breaks, but I learn and grew with the knowledge and hope and day by day, got better, with still lots to learn and experience as well.
Take care, dear Dolphina and keep being an amazing, strong and inspiring light.

@Rhani Zerimar funny you said balance & I'm literally balancing in this pic :) I think we are always on a journey, a work in progress. And if we keep our heart open we find what we want plus something we didn't even know we wanted, but needed!

@Jerome Fortin isn't amazing that if we keep our hearts open, we survive all bruises, burns and heart breaks and actually become better people because of it. I LOVE that you value being a good person! ☮️😍
