Accepting Yourself Fully
Let's jump into the deep end, shall we. And by deep, I mean let's get personal real quick. I have always had body issues - but who hasn't had something about themselves they were unhappy with? If I am going to be anything in this life, I want to be accepting of others and more importantly, accepting of myself.
For as long as I can remember, I've had big boobs. Boom, done, said it. They are THE biggest pain in the butt and also 9/10 times the first thing people notice about me. I get it - there they are. But imagine trying to date and trying to get to know a person without things getting overly sexual too quickly because they're immediately just attracted to your body.
As I've grown up and weeded my way through the losers of the dating scene, I've come to also learn more about my self worth. In that, I've grown to love myself and accept myself for the way God made me. Sure, I could change my body through a painful surgery. Or I could be grateful that the Lord had a vision for me and created me in that image. It's not about having a perfect body because that simply does not exist.
I made this realization of acceptance and did what I, as a photographer would do - photograph it. (Well, my INCREDIBLE friend Liz actually photographed it but you get the point). Accept yourself - tall, short, thin, overweight..whatever it may be. Love yourself before someone else.
Thank you Liz, for capturing me in a vulnerable yet incredibly strong moment in my life where I accept myself for the way God made me - cellulite and all girl! OWN IT.
