For All Women


Last week I started struggling with silly things.  Things I've talked about on here before like body image, exercise, healthy choices, and self-confidence.

You can only have people comment on your "growth" so many times before it starts to get to you.  If I'm being real, I've never felt more beautiful or less inhibited before now.  Pregnancy has truly opened my eyes to the miracles that my body is capable of.  How strong the female body is.  Yet how graceful.


For some reason probably hormones last week, I started stressing about losing baby weight and things that aren't even important right now.  Things like when I'll be able to run more than 3 miles again or when my mile time will be back in the single digits.  S.T.U.P.I.D. things.

So when I came across this video, it really opened my eyes and made me realize that I was focusing on superficial things when, in all reality, I'm not going to care about losing the baby weight because I'm going to be holding my baby.  I will run 3 miles again when my baby is big enough to go in the jogging stroller.  There are so many more important things in this life and all the people that want to comment can just buzz off.

Pregnancy is beautiful.

Perhaps you aren't pregnant.  Perhaps you are at a place in life where you are 100% happy with yourself.  I hope you are.  But, at one point or another we all have our struggles, our insecurities, our downfalls.  I encourage you to remember how special and important you are.  Watch the video above and find inspiration in it.  You are awesome.

  1. with my first, the doctors kept telling me i was gaining too much weight. it made me feel horrible. feeling the way you're feeling is normal...but yes, once you are holding that baby, you forget all about it!! and also, i am a firm believer that there is almost nothing more beautiful than a pregnant woman!!!

  2. Loving this post. Yes, we all struggling with so so many issues at different points in our life but it does help to focus on the positive. Sometimes I have to take a step back when I am struggling and just think about all of the things that I have to be grateful for. Have a great Friday Eve!

  4. Keep having a positive attitude Lins! You're looking absolutely beautiful and worrying about those things aren't helpful.
