Ok ladies, I’ve got a question for you? How many of you got up today, got dressed, looked in the mirror, and said something negative about the way you look? I’m sure it went something like this:
“I hate my bra-line bulge.”
“My thighs are just so freakin’ huge.”
“UGH! My stomach is totally hanging out!”
We are all guilty of criticizing our bodies in one way or another. It almost seems like it’s in our nature, as women, to be self-loathing when it comes to our appearance.
And I’M OVER IT.
Let’s face it ladies…putting yourself down just isn’t Mom Sexy. In fact, it doesn’t even come close. And I think we need to celebrate the way we look…wrinkles, dimples, and all.
I’m hoping that you will all join me and link up for a fun event that I’m hosting August 9th – August 13th.
This week is going to be all about self-acceptance, and accentuating the positive attributes of the way we look. And this is gonna be an easy one to play along with.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE:
1. First, you need to find at least one thing that you love about your body. And don’t even try and tell me that you can’t find anything to love, because that’s just nonsense, and it’s not Mom Sexy, and I don’t have any room for anything OTHER than Mom Sexy over here.
We spend so much time using phrases such as, “I hate…”, or “I can’t stand…”, or “I’m so (insert self-depreciating term here).”
I want you to tell me what you LOVE about the way you look. It can be your entire body, your legs, your face, or even something as small as your toenails!
2. Grab my button above, then take a photo of yourself and write a blog post (or make a vlog) telling everyone what aspects of your body you EMBRACE, and then stop by The Mommyologist anytime next week to link up your post.
This is a great way to meet some new bloggy friends, and to spread love and positivity to other women. My goal is for this to turn into a “carnival of compliments”, or something to that effect. I will be encouraging everyone to visit each and every blogger who links up, and to read their posts and remind them of just how beautiful and Mom Sexy they are. Because I believe that by joining together, we can inspire more confidence in each other.
We’re bringing Mom Sexy back, dammit!
I will be kicking off Embrace Your Body Week on the 9th with a special vlog telling you about the parts of me that I love. And I absolutely can’t wait to hear what all of YOU love about YOUR bodies.
I would love your help in spreading the word about this super-positive and fun week! If you could spare a tweet, I sure would appreciate it!
