Before my pregnancy, I thought I had the perfect body. I was very proud of it and I insensitively had little compassion for girls and women who struggled with theirs.
Today that body is gone, I struggle with the current version of it every day, especially when I go through a whole closet of clothes that don’t fit me anymore (and will never fit me again), and I avoid the scale like a plague. Today I’m one of those women.
My Italian blogger friend Chiara knows women’s bodies very well. She is a stylist and works with them every day. However, her latest post is not about the last collection of a super trendy designer or the latest, coolest accessory that you must have in your closet (her blog is fabulous by the way, but it is not the point of this post!)
Her post is about something more universally important, that is self-respect for the female body: one subject that I believe should matter to every woman on the planet.
Please go to Chiara’s blog, take a look at the video and consider spreading the word. Take notice though that the video contains brief partial nudity, so viewer discretion is advised.
Have a wonderful week!

There are no words to describe how much I struggle with my sense of beauty and the little inside voice that likes to remind me I don’t have the perfect body! It feels sooooo good to know that you and I are not alone out there. I pledged for myself, for my daughter and for every woman who only needs to be reminded that she is beautiful.
BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE.
