Be the light. Share the love. Do not be afraid to let yourself love yourself. You deserve your respect and love. No more hating ourselves. No more shaming our bodies or shaming ourselves. I'm done. None of us is perfect and the expectations we set for ourselves are quite honestly, dumb. You are enough just as you are. You are beautiful just as you are. You are worth loving. You are worth your ownkindness. That can be the hardest gift to give yourself...your own love. Over half my life has been spent hating myself (yes, I know that's a strong word, but it's the truth. I can hardly stand to read the words I use to say about myself in my old journal entries. It reminds me of the pain I felt and that's a hard place to go, so honestly, most of the time, I won't read them). 

I'm done, ladies. I am done. Let's do this. Let's all show ourselves the love and compassion we so readily give to others. Imagine the world we could live in if we simply loved ourselves? No more body shaming...no more anything shaming. You are beautiful and you deserve to feel that way  You're worth it. I am worth it. We are all worth it. 

I am strong. I am beautiful. I am Mary Rose.
