GoddessLife Inspirational Mondays

We all need inspiration from time to time - especially on Mondays!  I am a major quote nerd and love to underline all my books and post them on my refrigerator, mirrors and facebook, I select a special quote each Monday.


This monday is dedicated to all the women who write me feeling insecure and shame about "stretch marks". I can't think of a better way to say it: "Your body is not ruined. You're a goddamn tiger who earned her stripes." Be proud it shows who you are: a Mother!

I have stretch marks -- I have a LOT of stretch marks. Look at the lines on a road map and that shows you how good my stretch marks are. I say good, because there's nothing bad about stretch marks. You have them for a reason. It's time to embrace your stretch marks and love your body. Skin is beautiful. YOU are beautiful.

i dont feel shame in my stretch marks, I carried three beautiful wonderful children that created those! however the extra weight that refuses to leave is a bit different........but mainly cuz of certain people around me who rub it in.

every masterpiece has its flaws, and every great master knows a perfect face is unreal and offensive on a subliminal level. beauty is a skin deep scar or mole or crooked smile.

besides, a beautiful face and body do not always mean a beautiful person inside-where it counts!

Yup. They may not be pretty, but if the reason they came was from childbirth then the symbolism is rather lovely.
