In response to the hateful messages i got about my belly photo, i’ve been empowered to share this message louder!
yes, i do i have a valley of lines mapped across my belly, mountains of stretched skin left over my mid section, lightning bolts on my sides and back, all signs that i carried life inside of me.... five times!
i also have a cesarean scar reminding me that my belly was cut open twice!
my body is amazing.
my body is beautiful.
my body is powerful.
my body is strong.
my body is capable.
my body made me a mother.
my body grew a human inside.
not everybody has that privilege.
so while society wants to sit behind a screen and label us as flawed, i am here to remind myself and all of you that to our children we are perfect. they see behind the stretched out skin, marks, and lines. they see us for who we truly are. they know our hearts and love us unconditionally. and that is all that matters. 💗
