"You have more to do than be weighed down by pretty or beautiful. You are a fiery heart and a wicked brain. Do not let your soul be defined by its shell."
"Success is liking yourself, liking what you do and liking how you do it." ~Maya Angelou
In a world where you are surrounded by messages telling you that you are not enough it is a nice change of pace to stop and say 'I was not created perfectly but I was created beautifully.' I have a dream that women and especially mothers would rise up and say I am enough, that we would stop apologizing for any flaw or physical imperfection. That we would teach our children to love themselves the way they are and not the way our culture pushes them to be. That we would do this simply by loving ourselves. That we would stop saying only the inside matters and stop acting like only the outside does. That we would celebrate our whole selves. That none of our self would be thrown out but all of it celebrated whole, in its entirety.
I invite you to get your photograph taken, to not shy away from having yourself be captured, but to celebrate it!
