This post and others that come along like it are what I’m going to call an “In-between-er” I told you there’d be some non-book stuff thrown in.
I saw this great story online, It’s short, but sweet and I think it’s something that we all can relate to our lives whether you’re a mother or not. However, because I am a 33 year old mom of three I know that it spoke to me.
Rachel Hollis, who is the founder of a lifestyle website called The Chic Site, and a 32- year old mother of three, posted a facebook selfie of herself in a bikini while on vacation. The photo and the message that she sent with it quickly went viral. Her message was about how she was proud of her saggy tummy, stretch marks and was not going to be ashamed of her healthy body that allowed her to carry and give birth to her 3 babies. She encouraged women to see themselves differently and with kindness saying, “They aren’t scars ladies, they’re stripes and you’ve earned them!”
