Grateful for where I am in life despite my hardships. This year is the bravest I've ever been... Allowing myself to be vulnerable and open up about my skin and what I'm going through, like through this Instagram diary and sharing with those who are also documenting their journey. I used to be incredibly self conscious and upset and avoided going out or seeing anyone or just feeling like shit filled with anxiety if I DID go out and not letting anyone see my skin or masking my pain like I was invalid or ashamed of it. But in accepting that I can't control my eczema as much as I wanted it to go away - I found peace. I found strength in changing my mindset - if I can't control the situation, at the very least I can change my perspective of it and find other ways to deal with it. In my struggle I found a budding self confidence, humility, perseverance, resilience and patience with myself. Yes there are bad days when flare ups are a bitch and you wanna throw all that optimism out the window but the point is that's okay, we're all just human but we'll pick ourselves up and keep going 🌱 #affirmationsforme#affirmationsforyou#beautyinthestruggle#growthmindset#resilience#persevere#bestrong#upliftingquotes#positivity#eczemawarrior#skinprobs#tsw#rss#keepgoing
My quads are on 🔥😰😩💦🍑 Truth; 🔺That first move, I was finally able to nail going pretty fast. 🔺Yes, I'm aware that my belly jiggles when I wiggle🤷🏼♀️. 🔺My belly sags down or to the side when I do certain floor moves. 🔺I have rolls when I sit.
None of that defines who the fuck I am as a badass mom/wife/strong woman✊🏻💋. I'm 31, embraced that my body had given me 2 healthy babies, withstood the damage I did to it in my early-mid 20's and in midst of trying to become "skinny", I am as healthy as can be. BAM👊🏻💥 I'm not focusing on what society thinks we should or shouldn't look like. I focus on self love & imperfections.
Not the fact that I don't have a hard 6 pack yet because at times I give in more than I should to yummy foods. I just work hard, set goals for myself, if I screw up I get back to it. Yes, I get a tad self conscious about my changing body, who doesn't!?! I mean, we all wish we had something like someone else, don't we!?! For once though, I'm really understanding that god intended me to look the way I do and have the body I love so much👆🏻🙏🏻💓. So to the girl with not so great abs, mom beating herself up for flabby skin, ladies with rolls when they sit, gals who love the be stuff still, young ladies who suffer with their image........MY DAUGHTER who is learning to be different, love herself in every way, work to be active and not let weight, a number define her,.............this if for you!!!! Fuck a hater who don't like what we have. Fuck society for thinking we gotta have wash board abs to be considered "Fit". Fuck not being perfect for some dude. Fuck being perfect and embrace every step of your journey my gals😘🌱🌷🌸⭐️!!! #sweatsesh#embracethejourney#trusttheprocess#stretchmarks#momflab#inspiration#loveyourself#strongereveryday#strongwomen#upliftingquotes#fitat30something#themarmsthough#iwokeuplikethis#bodyimageposts#fitmodelpotential#lovefood#onestepatatime#progressnotperfection
