“Because true belonging only happens when we present our authentic, imperfect selves to the world, our sense of belonging can never be greater than our level of self-acceptance.” ~ Brené Brown
I have said it so many times before but honestly, I owe so much of my body confidence to SinfulSunday and the wonderful community that welcomed me into it. I had been blogging for a few months before I reached out to ask Molly about SinfulSunday – I am so glad I did because it has allowed me to be a part of something. I have never felt I fitted in before. Always interested in something else different from everyone else. SinfulSunday was my foot in the door to really feeling like I belonged somewhere. I will be forever grateful I took that first step.
When Molly set the task for this prompt I honestly hadn’t a clue what to do with it! The light was so beautiful coming in the window the other morning that I decided to start snapping away with my morning cuppa.
What better way to celebrate than sharing a pic that never in a million years would I have ever thought I would share when I started this journey.
Lumps, bumps, body hair, unshaven legs, stretch marks, and my latest operation scars, which I am still uncomfortable about but this is me 🙂
Thank you Molly Moore for creating Sinful Sunday. Thank you for all the work you do for this community and honestly, thank you for helping me love my body again and giving me a sense of belonging. You are a wonderful human and I am thankful to call you my friend <3
Come celebrate week 500 over at SinfulSunday <3
