But...what if we said no? What if we loved our bodies for just simply being our bodies and said no to all the expectations society set before us? What if we loved our bodies DESPITE the fact that society may be telling us that we're not allowed to. What if we pushed the mute button on society telling us that we're not good enough. What if instead of listening to the fact that our body needs to be reshaped or redesigned, we would believe that bodies come in all different shapes and sizes. Because the reality is, they do. Bodies are different shapes, sizes, and heights and one is not better than the other. Although thinness is expected, it doesn't have to be accepted. You are good enough, you are beautiful enough and you are simply enough. You don't need to be a certain weight, a certain height or look a certain way to be good enough. Let's erase the list of expectations society has set for women. You are beautiful. You are strong. Your voice is heard. Your story is powerful. You are enough. You are loved. You are worthy.
Society might tell me that this picture is too much, that it shouldn't be shared. That my stomach should be flatter and more toned, that my hair shoud be thicker, my teeth whiter, my arms more muscular and my legs more toned. But guess what? Forget those expectations. I LOVE MY BODY AND I AM EXCITED ABOUT LOVING MY BODY BECAUSE I FOUGHT HARD TO GET HERE.
Go love your body today, you powerful woman!!
