So last summer I went to to Hawaii with my family. I spent the entire summer daydreaming about wearing a sexy swimsuit and strutting up and down the beaches of Maui, as it would be my first time going. But when I got there, I hid under a cover-up for the majority of the trip, afraid of my body. I didn’t want to be judged for each stretch mark, each bump, each un-flat surface that people would see. Today’s goal was to take a photo of myself in the same attire, finding ways to rejoice in my beauty when I couldn’t only one year ago. Not gonna lie, I kind of love these <3.
"I still have nose envy over some people, but I would look ridiculous if I had their noses. If I had a different nose, I think I would feel the need to change my personality to match, and I’m not up for that. I love my broken nose and myself just the way we are."
