Tiger Stripes aka Stretch Marks
I saw this on Pinterest today. I love it.
Why are we so ashamed of our stretch marks? We grew a HUMAN inside our own bodies! Of course that's going to leave a mark...but it should be one of pride. We should be able to pull up our shirts, point to the marks on our abdomen and say "Hell yes I have stretch marks! And I earned every single one of them!".
Instead we cover them up like they are track marks on a heroin addict.
No more ladies! Be proud. We created, nurtured and incubated a little life for 9 long months. And then we spent 23 hours (personal experience there) pushing said life out of our bodies in a sweaty, painful, gut wrenching process. Those are battle scars! And I'm going to be damn proud of them!
Disclaimer: That is NOT my body but I'm envious of this woman.
My Wish Flower: My wish is that I will never be ashamed of the marks left on my body for the blessing of my two little girls and what they bring to my life.
