I’m back, and I’m feeling great! My thyroid surgery went well, and I’m relieved that its all over. Now all that remains is a scar, little Miss Scarlett if you will 🙂 lol Though my scar will fade, my story will always remain, and I’m proud of my journey, I’m a fighter, a survivor, one badass mother ****! lol
It’s taken me my entire life to actually love and accept myself, but I’m finally learning to love myself unconditionally. For me, that means loving every part of me. My quirky personality, my corny jokes, my scars, my stretch marks, my thighs…everything. I don’t want to live my life constantly looking at my body and trying to find ‘flaws.’ When you think about it, what the heck is a flaw anyway? I mean it’s something you make up in your head lol No two people are the same, so you can’t compare, and I honestly think we’re all beautiful because we’re all different. I think ‘flaws’ aren’t ‘flaws’ at all, just traits, that make us each unique. I’ve got some great traits lol No one else has a thyroidectomy scar that looks exactly like mine…bam, positivity! haha
I leave you with a quote I completely adore!
No seriously, go look in the mirror…tell yourself you’re beautiful, because you are! Then tell yourself how much you love YOU, because you’ve been through a lot and you’ve survived 100% of your worst days, and that my friends is amazing! You’re amazing, live your life, love your life, love your scars, share your stories! We only get one life people, enjoy the ride!! VIVA LA LIFE lol
