Just Be YOU!

Beautiful. Gross. Strong. Thin. Fat. Pretty. Ugly. Sexy. Disgusting. Flawless. Woman. Amy Schumer, I don’t think you could have summed up any better what us women go through on a daily basis. I saw this picture and couldn’t help but think, “Wow! That is a real woman!” Our brains are flooded daily from the moment we wake up and begin scrolling on Instagram and  Facebook comparing our lives and expectations to the millions of other people in this world. Why is she so pretty? Why is she so skinny? Why is she traveling so much? Why don’t I have this life? Why are my boobs so big, hips so wide, hair so thin? The questions and assumptions can go on and on and what continues to go on is the fake reality of what WE as WOMEN are “supposed” to look like and go through every day. Monday we feel ready to conquer the week (beautiful), Tuesday maybe we didn’t get enough sleep (tired), Wednesday we had a great workout (fit and thin), Thursday we might have eaten a bit too much at the work lunch-in (fat) and Friday, well….Friday we count down to 5pm and are ready for our two favorite words: Saturday & Sunday! I am grateful that someone of some sort of power can reach a crowd of people and show, hey this is what I look like and I feel great. I am not perfect, I never will be perfect but I embrace what I have been given and work hard at maintaining exactly that! Thanks, Amy.
