I took a photo the other day and looked it and immediately thought to myself ‘I look fat and have a double chin.’
What I then began to think is so many people must look in the mirror and think that their body isn’t ideal like all those people we see on social media.
It is so important to embrace our bodies and feel strong and empowered.
I find that when taking pictures, I stand up tall, tense my body and I go through hundreds of takes when trying to take the ‘perfect picture’.
What I need to remind myself is that we need to normalise being comfortable in our body and accepting ourselves. We have been given the assets we have for a reason.
I am not taking hundreds of photos anymore, what I am doing is being happy with the body I have and sharing that. Share the body love and acceptance.
