When we look at our babies, we see nothing but perfection.
When our moms look at us (their babies), they see nothing but perfection.
When our loving husbands look at us, they see nothing but perfection.
When our loving husbands look at us, they see strength.
When our babies look at us, they see pure beauty.

When are we going to start looking at ourselves and see beauty?

It starts with us.

Look in the mirror and see the battle scars, see the fat ripples, see the new curves, see the sagging skin, see the stretch marks and LOVE them. Those things are all a result of growing and birthing a human being. That’s pretty kick ass, mama! Accept them as a part of your new life. Your new life is so amazing. Your new life includes being a mama. There is nothing more beautiful than that. Once you accept your new beauty, you will be confident again. You will teach your son/daughter about positive body image. You will be free to put that bathing suit on and enjoy playing with your children. It feels amazing. I challenge you to give it a try.
