Oh how i hate my jawline. Oh how i wish i had bigger boobs. I’ll definitely get a boob job and work out more to have her body. All things that i’ve said so many times to myself and out-loud. But i never realised the effect these words could have on me. Not being happy with who i already am. It makes a huge change that body and self loving is a trend these days. It does raise more awareness and the idea we have about what beauty is. But that doesn’t mean that it always makes you feel better about yourself.
This post isn’t a post to make you feel good about yourself. I wouldn’t be able to do that even if i wanted to, and i mean to really get in your core. It’s something that you have to go through and then wake up one day realising that you do love every inch and every curve of your body, because that is who you truly are. And there’s nothing better than being you, even if you don’t always see that. No articles, books, or celebrities can tell you that – it is already in you.
Showering the other day, i realised how much i love my body for giving birth to the most amazing person i know. For that, i’m in owe and love every cell, every stretch mark and the soon to be saggy boobs. But these saggy boobs, breastfeed him and for that they’re even more beautiful to my eyes. Every wrinkle reminds me of all the laughs and cries that brought me to this day. Always a reminder of what i’ve gone through to be here today, so blessed and lucky for everything i have.
