My Beautiful Body

Love my body
Love my body

It’s no secret that I’m not that fond of my body, at least I don’t think it is. I think all bodies are beautiful but often have a hard time seeing the beauty of my own. I see my scars, my failures, my insecurities, but not my beauty. Scars from surgeries and accidents. My failure to take care of my body, my health. My insecurities about my weight, and the scars, and the failures. Because of this I don’t often feel beautiful either. It is hard to feel beautiful when you don’t believe you look beautiful or have someone telling you that you are beautiful every day. But then I don’t have anyone telling me I’m not beautiful either, nobody except myself. Today though, today I snapped this picture and I liked it. I saw the beauty in it, in me, and I thought how wonderful that was. There may still be more days where I don’t feel this way, where the beauty is hard to find, but I will take today’s win and try to make more days like today.

  1. This is perfect. Both your rocking body, because hellloooooooo?! But also the words. I think the secret really is grabbing those moments when you can, just like this, and soak em up. You don’t have to feel beautiful all the time. You are, and you’ll learn it over time. I’m happy to remind you when you need it!

    Thanks for sharing!


    • I got a tear in my eye reading this. Sharing on these memes, seeing everyone’s pictures and reading their words, have done a tremendous job helping me see my own beauty. Thank you for the lovely complement and for Love Yourself. I may not comment as much as I could but I do check out all the posts.

  2. Your body is really beautiful! Love this image!
