Women, in general, are very tough on ourselves as it relates to physical beauty and self-esteem. AMEN? And, that’s what makes this woman’s Facebook post so special. This mom has a message for ALL moms.
Rachel Hollis‘ reason for this post was for one thing and one thing ONLY…to encourage women to be their best selves and to accept their curves and battle scars from childbirth. And I say, “AMEN Sister!”
The mother of three shared a photo of herself in a bikini on Facebook which has gone viral for all the right reasons.
“I have stretch marks and I wear a bikini. I have a belly that’s permanently flabby from carrying three giant babies and I wear a bikini. My belly button is saggy… (which is something I didn’t even know was possible before!!) and I wear a bikini. I wear a bikini because I’m proud of this body and every mark on it. Those marks prove that I was blessed enough to carry my babies and that flabby tummy means I worked hard to lose what weight I could. I wear a bikini because the only man whose opinion matters knows what I went through to look this way. That same man says he’s never seen anything sexier than my body, marks and all. They aren’t scars ladies, they’re stripes and you’ve earned them. Flaunt that body with pride!”
