Every morning. Every single morning.
I step on a scale. I see a number.
I allow the number to determine my mood. My self-esteem. My self-worth.
It is a number. A number with too much power.
I cannot do it anymore. I will not do it anymore.
It is time to let go.
I am turning 40.
I want to like me.
I want to be strong and happy with my body.
It is time for me to accept that I have the power.
Not a number.
It is my turn.
