As women I think we struggle with body image for most of our lives, and having a kid only compounded those lovely issues for me. Almost a year has gone by since Kaylee was born, and this is still a big struggle for me, one that I struggle with some days more than others.
But, thanks to a video that Summer posted this weekend, I'm hoping that I can really start to shift my way of thinking as I work toward becoming a more healthy me. I'm already trying to exercise more and eat healthier, but it doesn't matter how many times I go to the gym, or how many smart food choices I make. If I don't try and work on my own ideas about my body image, everything else is just a waste of my time.
And let me tell you...it's a heck of a lot harder to make changes in your mind than it is in your body. Ever since I got to really thinking about this topic this weekend, this song keeps popping up in my head.
It's an absolutely beautiful song, and it's got such a strong message. So watch it. Listen to it. Believe what she sings. Because it's true. You ARE beautiful. No matter what.
