No one loves their body. Everyone has something they would change if they could. We’re all full of insecurities and most of us crave positive reinforcement.
The part of my body that I have always disliked the most is my back. Scoliosis has claimed my ribs on both sides, jutting out on the right and pulling in on the left with a hard right curve.
Everyone has something. This is just my thing. I’ve always been embarrassed by it and a lot of times I would try to hide it. With something like this, it’s impossible to hide.
I realized today, that instead of being embarrassed by something I can’t change, how about I embrace my body the way it is? I’m 32 years old and I am just now figuring this out.
Today I have decided to love my body, flaws and all. I have stretch marks from having children that will never go away and a pooch that may stay forever as well. The beautiful thing about those flaws is they are a daily reminder of what my body is capable of.
Two kids! How could I see my body as anything other than amazing after that?
