Say hello to post-workout boob sweat!
Yes, those are boobs, even though it looks like a butt lol.
So, I am really self-conscious about my body. Mr. Robinson works very hard to let me know how beautiful I am to him and has done nothing but good for me in that regard. Still, I cringe a little each time I post a photo of anything other than my smiling face, and even those are carefully picked through before being published. I vacillated like you can't believe about whether or not to participate in this thing that I think is fantastic - just not for me... I decided to do it for two reasons.
1. I'm the only one who has a problem with my body and I need to break out of that cage, stop those tapes, so to speak, this seemed like a good way to start - just rip the band-aid right off.
2. I admire the creativity and courage of those who post so much of themselves for others to enjoy, to laugh about, cry about, cheer about, and I want to be part of this community - it feels a bit like finding some long-lost family and being like, "Hi!" waves shyly "Uhm, can I play with you?" So, here I am, jumping into the sandbox, making new friends, and opening up a little.
I absolutely love Molly's quote, "I see myself through other's eyes and am made anew." That kind of sums up why I'm doing this.
