Celebrating others comes easy to me, I could shout from the roof top all day, though celebrating myself no matter how small the successes are, has always been a work in progress...
Fact: You see a confident woman in this picture but what you don’t feel or hear is the past self-doubt of her ever totally owning wearing a mid-drift top comfortably. Don’t get me wrong, I look at my midsection when the clothes aren’t on and hell I see a tidy waistline that I've always had. Though now for a woman in her mid-30’s my thoughts have been “ it’s not about if I can pull it off, its more about can I pull it off and be classy about it.
2 months ago I went looking for a new outfit while I was on holidays I asked the lovely shop assistant for a recommendation, you know me, I’m always up for a recommendation and she suggested this exact outfit.. instant thought ‘ I couldn’t pull that off’ But here is where I switched my mindset to,”If I don’t give it ago I will never know” Bammm!! I was in that dresser room in a flash and the self-love connection with myself that come over me when I saw myself in the mirror was next level.. from all the flaws to beauty.. a personal growth moment and today I am publicly celebrating my success.
12 months ago I would cringe at the thought of posting something like this… today I say Hell Yes, Yes it’s about Me, Yes some may not relate, But hell it’s to the ones that can relate, it’s about You too… Self–love is a never ending journey, appreciate how far you have come. We all have insecurities but it’s up to you to embrace yourself & only do you. Thankyou to the lovely sisters at @thepimlicoline
