My perfectly imperfect body

Beauty

My body was compromised.

My boobs aren’t as perky as they once were and my stomach has stretch marks.

Due to child birth.

For years, literally over a decade, I have been unhappy with my body. Ashamed to wear crop tops and bikinis. Judging the woman who did. “She looks a hot mess, why would someone ever leave the house like that?”. Which ironically, is how I’d feel about myself if I were in her shoes.

What I had not factored in was what I clearly didn’t understand. It was a lack of confidence within myself.

​The woman who feels good about herself on the inside can not be touched. She does not need validation.

I know this now because of my first encounter with confidence. It was on a resort in Florida, dressed in a high waist bikini and it felt like love. And my heart was happy.

Over a decade of hiding and being ashamed of my body, I digress. And share openly what I refuse to allow to hold me back any longer.

​My perfectly imperfect body: less than perfect boobs, stretch marked stomach and heart of gold ☺️.

Don’t forget to acknowledge, support and love yourself. -Confidence

Xo,

Carmen
