Focus on Love

She said I was “too skinny...” He’d said I was “too big...” And it wasn’t the first time I’d heard it. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ I’ve had friends and strangers alike tell me what they think about how I look. My stretch marks, my mom-of-two belly button, my biceps, my freckles, my spider veins, the color of my skin, my weight, and even the shape of my nose. I could go on and on. I’ve heard commentary on it all. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ But instead of this crazy weird way the world has decided everyone is here only for our critiquing, I’m working to teach my girls another way. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Instead of commenting on the physical appearance of other women, I point out their personality traits, I make note of their character. Instead of picking myself apart in the mirror, I talk nicely about myself and let my girls hear so they know how to love themselves too. And instead of telling my babies how cute they are, I tell them how proud I am of their bravery. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ REMEMBER just because the world shouts their judgement doesn’t mean we have to listen. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Focus on healthy. Focus on happy. Focus on loving however your body looks when you are. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ You feel me, friend? Cause I’m feeling my too-skinny-too-buff-sometimes-squishy-beautiful self. 😊⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ #selflovesunday #madeforbrave⁣⁣
