I compliment women! I love doing it. It's not because I'm hitting on them. Its because sometimes...too often...we don't hear how beautiful, amazing, talented, inspiring-we are.
Sometimes you hear it and you doubt it! The older I get, the more I enjoy being a woman. I enjoy the woman I'm becoming. Settled, in getting to know me. I'll be 35 this year. ( I'm uber excited-already started planning the party) I've learned to embrace EVERYTHING about me! Even not being perfect, because in my head, I'm supposed to be.
Each year, I learn something new about me.. for example, the other day I looked in the mirror at my nude body and I REALLY LOOKED at it. Like I intentionally inspected every curve, mark, dot..etc and I told my body I love you and thank you for getting me this far.
This has been a LONG process. To embrace and love my body. If you've known me, you know I use to starve myself to be thin. That even when I was pregnant with Cameron, I would cry with each stretch mark. I remember a time in Target sobbing because I didn't look right in a maternity swimsuit. MATERNITY!
With Christian it was worst. I weighed almost 170lbs with him. I remember thinking... I can't be this fat. My thighs can not be this big. (Not pregnant...fat).
That moment in the mirror was monumental for me! It was liberating.
This is who I am. And I'm enjoying fully being me and I want EVERY woman to get to this place of peace.
