YOU have more to do than be weighed down by pretty or beautiful. You are a fiery heart and wicked brain. Do not let your soul be defined by its shell. – unknown ————————–
This really hit home for me today.
Lately it’s been easy for me to get caught up in my shell, so to speak. I’ve been on this journey to get back to “who i was” pre-triplets.
Is this the body that used to feel so confident and pretty and at ease? NO.
Is this the body my husband fell in love with? NO.
Is this the body that fit into size 14 jeans so effortlessly? NO.
Does my body look how it used to before it conceived and grew THREE human beings inside of it? NO.
OH how it consumes me at times and how disappointing it is that the physical matters so much to me, when there is such depth beneath it that oftentimes stays hidden. Having TRIPLETS changed my life. My heart. It transformed me into something so much greater; it made me want to live for something other than myself. It made me softer. It made me happier. It made me selfless. Becoming a mother made me the best version of myself, a gift that i will never be able to repay.
The truth is, i will never be “back.” I am no longer that person. I may never fit into my pre-pregnancy clothes… i am not that same girl. My life is so much richer, so much greater, filled with so much happiness and light, all due to THREE amazing little people, my Peas. They have enriched my soul a million times over, and something that powerful is too big for the pettiness of pretty.
Always remember who runs the world… GIRLS! Girls of all sizes, races, and backgrounds! It’s up to us to decide what standards to live by, not society or a magazine cover! 👯 ——————
Happy International Women’s Day! 💃
