40 Fat & Fabulous: Unapologetically Embracing My Full Self
Something has happened to me in the last few weeks that I can’t quite describe. I don’t know if it’s the whole Mercury in retrograde thing, but I. Am. Feelin. Myself.
For years now my style has leaned toward funky chic but modest. I don’t show much cleavage or thigh or back. But something has definitely shifted and I am realizing that there are still parts of my body that I want to embrace more fully. My thighs are probably at the top of that list.
A few weeks ago I visited Nordstrom Rack and saw these Good American distressed denim shorts that I could not put down. Normally I would look at those and tell myself that they’d look great on someone else. But something inside me said I should try them on, so I did.
And OMG…I felt so powerful, so sexy and confident. I saw my body differently as I looked in the mirror and smiled at my dimpled thighs on display. My fupa nudging me to tuck the shirt in so she could get some action too. I saw myself in a way I never had before, with adoration. I would totally hit on me! LOL
I also realized that I often tell women the same thing, which is that they can wear anything they want. It’s about your attitude knowing that you deserve to wear cute shit no matter the size, age, shape or ability your body has.
And so it dawned on me that I must lead by example. So you’ll probably be seeing way more of this sexy bod in the weeks and months to come. I think a swimsuit post is in the near future!
What else would you like me to post about? Leave a note in the comments.
