Hearing all the praise for Alli has been making me think a lot about who I want to be as a person and how I am going to find the courage to do all of the growing I need to do.
I'm sure I'm not alone in struggling to attain my personal ideals, so I put this out to you, girlmom. We are amazing and powerful women and mothers, and we all have to keep growing. I wanna know what you love most about yourself, and what you are striving to be and do. What do you need courage to change, and how are you gonna get that courage?
Me, I need to remember how beautiful and strong I am, and to give myself the validation I need. I've got to work on loving and taking care of my new mama-self, looking out for my own needs and modelling self-respect.
I am a smart, creative, passionate person. I'm going to try really hard to carry myself just like that and not sell myself short because of self-doubt. I have stretch marks and my breasts hang lower than they did before having a kid--but these things don't make me less sexy, they make me womanly and powerfully attractive.
that's all I can think of for now, I'm sure there's more. Anyone else got something?
