From baby abs to baby bumps🤰, sliding in and out of self-love & insecurity like a hormonal teen. From feeling like a fucking Goddess👸 to feeling like a total slob.
But that's life.
No matter how far in your self-love journey you might be, these days will always come. Doubt will find a way, old thoughts will creep back in & your confidence will falter.
I snapped this photo earlier today in response to a woman feeling insecure about her #hipdips and for a moment all I saw was cankles, thunder thighs & tummy chub. Talk about a WTF moment! 🙅🤦♀️
But here's where awareness is key. I could have easily sunk into the old patterns of picking this drastically changing body apart, or I could recognize what I was doing & act.
So I pulled a swift "SHIT LINDSAY! Check yo self girl🚨" and chose to see something different...
🌟I chose to see strong rooted legs that carry me & my growing baby through life, no matter how crazy it gets.
🌟I chose to see a blossoming belly where my body is expanding to make room for the new life it's nourishing (HELLO GODDESS 🙌🌹)
🌟I chose to see a strong ass woman & flexible body that transitions beautifully for all the stages of my life.
🌟I chose to see love. I chose to see beauty. I chose to see strength.
At the end of the day what we choose to see is what we believe, become and ultimate are. Even if we falter we have the power to choose something different every single moment of every single day. We don't need to stay in the dark spaces, the doubt or the insecurity. We can choose to walk into the light, we can choose to start loving exactly where we are.
