I think out of all of my body parts, I’ve always liked my back overall. No matter how big or small, I’ve always loved the deep crease in the small of my back. I’ve been working hard to strengthen it to better hold what I have in the front lol.
In the beginning, I wasn’t a fan of the small rolls I would get sometimes under my bra, but I’ve even learned to embrace those of/when they are there.
This is one of my rare posts on #bodyappreciation month where I’m OK with a part of my body. I’m pretty proud of myself for being able to at least accept and even love a part of me.
What do you like/love about your body?
Location: New Orleans
I’ve missed the first three days of #bodyappreciationmonth, but I feel it’s important to do so I’m starting now.
In March when I had major surgery, all I kept thinking was “Life as I know it is over”
I’ll never be able to have children again & my stomach will be opened up in a way in which I didn’t even have to go through when I DID have children. They told my I would have a huge t-shaped scar. I was devastated. The day before the surgery, Someone told me not to worry about any of it, it won’t make me any less beautiful, so I just let it go. Upon waking after the surgery, the first thing I thought was, “Let me see where I was cut so I can figure what kind of tattoo I will get over it”. I was happy to see that it was a low cut but SEEING the incision area made me realize things will never be the same, I had an even bigger scar on the inside.
I’ve realized that part of appreciating your body is not just about the outer shell, but ALL of you... I have to appreciate that I’ve been been to give life at some point and that part is over, but a new part has begun. This scar right here, is a reminder that I’m alive, healthy and able to live my BEST LIFE. I don’t want a tattoo over the scar, I’m learning slowly to be proud of my warrior scars. First thing I do when I wake up is touch it and say to myself, “You are fierce”
I love body appreciation month. I discover things about myself that teaches me to appreciate the differences even more.
Thank you @untamedxdesire for pulling me into this some year ago.
