This is the first year I've participated, and I just know it won't be the last.
So let's talk a little about my body. It's 45 years old, and it's done alot of things.
It's birthed three babies, bungee jumped from a crane, and posed nude in a rainforest. I thought about posting that photo today, then I thought...silly me, I've already done that.
The thing about blogging is that it makes you honest. It makes you accountable. What photo do I dare show today?
I chose this one because it's not perfect. In fact, it's very flawed. My hair looks like crap, I have my sunglasses on (what is it with me and sunglasses?), and my tongue is out!
It's not the perfect photo, but I like it. It's me, it's cheeky, and it's a nude selfie on the deck of the house, so it's very appropriate!
I'm not quite where I want to be with my body, and I do feel like I need a little tuneup, an oil change, and some maintenance.
My back is always sore, and I get tired easily. I'm getting older and my body is showing the signs.
Some lines on my face, more freckles, an uneven shape welcomes me when I look in the mirror.
But my body has not let me down when I have needed it the most. Carrying my babies, birthing and feeding them has been the most important thing it has done. I have the war wounds, the stretch marks, the grey hair, and my body worked hard for these.
Thank you body. I know I'm not always kind to you, and I promise to try harder, so lets work together.
I really do love you.
