Despite what this photo portrays ~ beauty | confidence | sexiness...? I wasn’t feeling that the morning I decided to take them. Rushed with anxiety, feelings of despair, tiredness, exhaustion from the pain and pressure my body has been in.
I didn’t let that stop me. To create the memories I’d been wanting to ~ for me, aswell as this little soul to look back on.
I was actually cleaning up my closet and seeing what needed to go & I this skirt was one that came out, brought for my bridal shower but never worn due to self consciousness. It didn’t fit, but I somehow made it work. Together with my wedding lingerie that no longer fits me. But hey, I made it work, right?
Well, to me it did and just by putting my “stretched + inflamed” body into something that resembles beauty to me, I instantly felt better.
No makeup, hair freshly washed and let to dry (which equals friz) ~ but that’s me right now. I‘m not “perfect”, actually nothing comes close to the word.
We need to remember that beauty behind the scenes isn’t always what it is on the outside, to others. But that doesn’t mean we can’t do what we want to, for us.
My message here ~ if you’re feeling a little lost, lacking self worth or just need a little more to brighten your day.. remember what it is that makes YOU feel beautiful ~ inside + out. Do it for YOU and allow that to nourish you! For you’re the only one that matters xx
