So between the custodian at my job asking me twice in one month if I am expecting, my mother patting my stomach and looking at me disappointingly, summer clothing season and all that comes with being a working mother of 3, I’m feeling like I need to return to my blog and my community of mamas. I almost feel like I’m starting at point A with my body positivity journey because this morning I was all like “I don’t care, I’m going to wear this even though my stomach is poking out.” I felt confident and comfortable. By mid day I was covering up myself with my sweater and literally trying to shrink myself to the point where my breathing was impacted. By the end of the day, I was too hot to hide in my sweater and too busy to care about how I looked but the wide range of emotions I felt reminded me of why I need this blog and why I started it in the first place. I want to celebrate my body. I want to be confident in my own skin. I don’t want to allow my day to be altered by someone’s innocent, yet inappropriate, comment about my body. That’s not fair to me.
So here I am again on my quest for true self love and confidence excited to bring anyone with me who is down!
