I have never felt
SO PRETTY! I had a photo session with the amazing Emily of Emily Pearl Photography. I cannot even describe how these photos make me feel about myself.
I have had a horrible inner monologue going on for a long time. I don’t say kind things to myself, and that in turn makes me think I am not worthy of praise, love, compliments. I have told myself “you look so fat” “you need to lose weight” “you are so unattractive” and on and on. I am working on changing my thoughts. I promise. It has been so difficult to change my mentality. Especially when I look at past photos.
However, I have been pregnant or breastfeeding 3 1/2 years out of the last 4 1/2 years. I gave birth to two perfect little babies! Naturally! I have given my body a workout for the majority of the last 4 1/2 years, I need to give my brain some love to give my body some love. After seeing these photos, I am starting to see that my body is beautiful. I am seeing that I have given so much to my family that it is ok to take time to get back to where I feel my best. I mean, look!
