So this is a photo that I never thought I would ever post. It is something I should talk about though. So, my tummy is big and round, or that is how I see it. It is my biggest insecurity about my body, and I am trying to love it for all that it is. My belly has been stretched and shrunken as my stress and anxiety go up or down. I have treated it poorly, I have had days I have not nourished it. The women in my life have taught me that beauty is not just skin deep. These strong, empowering women told me that I am beautiful the way I am. That I am worthy of love and affection, and that I should never let anyone dull my glow. The best part is, I have a wonderful man who loves me for all that I am. He calls me beautiful, and how he describes my tummy is soft. I am soft.
So to this tummy, and the rest of my body:
I love you the way you are, and I am sorry I have treated you poorly. I am trying to treat you the way you should be. I will never take you for granted. I just wish it did not take me 12 years to say that.
