I took this in the dressing room yesterday. I took it to avoid coming out of the room to show my husband. I took it because when I looked in that dressing room mirror I saw cellulite, a puffy belly, giant thighs. But when I took the picture my daughter asked me if she could have a copy of it. "Why?" I asked her. Because you look so beautiful, Mommy!" This is a reminder that while we are so busy criticizing our bodies, there are little girls watching. I don't shame myself out loud, but I know my actions often send other messages. I'm posting this picture here because my daughter is watching and I want her to know I love my body as much as I want her to love hers. #screwthehaters#allbodiesarebeautiful#notadietad#loveyourself
Another ocean sunset picture
(But seriously, how beautiful is this place??!!)#nofilter
The road has finally brought me 'home', to my home town and more significantly the beaches that I have found joy and refuge on throughout my entire childhood, adolescence and adulthood.
Coming here to the great southern ocean, relaxes me from deep within my soul.
Its greatness and power reminds me of how small I am, that forces so much greater exist and I am simply apart of that energy but not in control of it.
The ocean reminds me that I am connected to life, like one single cell in the body, vital but also insignificant, great but small and never ever alone
