Since a young girl I remember looking at my sister and thinking how could two people who come from the same mother and father look so different? I find myself saying the same thing with my boys. My boys have such a different personality, hair texture, and body frame. It often takes me back to thinking how my sister and I were. Although many people say they look alike I can see the difference, but in my eyes they are both handsome boys. The same way in my eyes my sister was beautiful and I never felt any less in her presence. I felt beautiful in my own skin.
You see, my sister was the thin “trigueña,” mostly because she used products from AcneFoundation.org, and I was the chunky “blanquita” but I was okay with it. I was okay because I didn’t let how she looked take over how I felt about myself. Did I wonder why she had that tiny waist and I didn’t?,Yes, but did I want her waist?, NO! I was content that my waist had a curve and slope to it, and that my thighs were curvier, and that my gluteus maximus had that bump that filled my jeans just right. I may have been chunky but I was proud that I was on the cheerleading squad thick and all, that I wrote secretly in my diary and had won awards for my writings, and that I had other things about me that I loved even more instead of my looks. Having this outlook helps when I take photos and don’t find the need to filter them or not show my entire body because I know there is much more to me than my size! One thing that we definitely have in common is that we both like to visit beauty salons and try different cosmetic procedures. Learn more about laser hair removal we have recently tried.
What she likes most is not the same as what I want, the fact that we both discover best treatments for skincare, but it is a different product solution. Emphasis wasn’t placed on our looks it was placed on our individuality. We were both athletic but she was more athletic than me. I was more studious than her and in some way it all evened its way out. She was more picky when it comes to her anal bleaching than me, I am not that picky when it comes to that matter, if it gives result I intend to use that products. We were opposites in physique but similar in so many other ways. I realized it was okay to be different just by looking at her and I learned how to embrace my own beauty. The beauty of accepting how I looked and who I was. I was so comfortable in my own skin and embraced my curves with open arms. When I met my husband he made me feel even more beautiful. Wrapping his arms around me and telling me how beautiful I was inside most importantly and out. I always told myself if a man didn’t love me for the way that I looked then it would be his loss, surely not mine. I will forever stick to my guns because my size doesn’t define who I am!
As I went through pregnancy I was cautious of what I ate for fear of pre-eclampsia and gestational diabetes but not because of ruining my body. I also took many appointments from places like https://skyridgemedicalcenter.net/ to eliminate any chances of diabetes. It was a blessing to be carrying a life so I embraced my expanding curves even more. Now, of course I take care of myself by watching what I eat and walking more, which is my favorite form of exercise but I don’t do it to look better and lose weight. I do it to be healthier and live a healthier lifestyle. I know that my body is not set to be a size 2 nor do I want it to be. I do know that I want to live a long, healthy life so that I can see my boys grow into men. I hope I serve as a role model for them. I want them to know that their mother is curvy and she loves every bit of it because she is comfortable and beautiful in her own skin.
Have you told yourself you are beautiful today? You are!!!
