Rachel Hollis is a blogger for The Chic Site where there’s one common goal – encouraging other women to be their best selves.
The mother of three shared a photo of herself in a bikini on Facebook which has gone viral for all the right reasons.
This is the message Hollis wrote with her photo:
“I have stretch marks and I wear a bikini. I have a belly that’s permanently flabby from carrying three giant babies and I wear a bikini. My belly button is saggy… (which is something I didn’t even know was possible before!!) and I wear a bikini. I wear a bikini because I’m proud of this body and every mark on it. Those marks prove that I was blessed enough to carry my babies and that flabby tummy means I worked hard to lose what weight I could. I wear a bikini because the only man who’s opinion matters knows what I went through to look this way. That same man says he’s never seen anything sexier than my body, marks and all. They aren’t scars ladies, they’re stripes and you’ve earned them. Flaunt that body with pride!”
Hollis’ Facebook post has resonated with so many women (and men) that it’s been shared over 41,000 times with nearly 10,000 comments. Let’s keep it going!
