Finding a New Confidence in My Body after Pregnancy

Ok so I don’t often go “deep” on here, but occasionally I have a bit of a personal revelation and I feel I should share it in case it resonates with even one other person out there in the world.

This one is about body confidence…or lack thereof…

I find it strange when people say that they think I’m confident. That they presume I’m strong and without insecurities. I take this as a compliment of course, but it’s far from the truth…in all walks of life really. But today I’m focusing on my body, my self-image, my self-confidence.

I’ve definitely got the “bug” and am thinking about another, but I’ve never jumped-into getting a tattoo, I’ve always waited until there’s something I can’t stop thinking about or something that really symbolises a time in my life. Although two have been pretty spontaneous, they are both small and represent a time, place and feeling that I wanted to lock in time…and I know I’ll never regret those. The other two took a lot more thought and designing and again, although my first tattoo isn’t something I’d necessarily choose now, I don’t regret it as I like the look of it and remember the reasons why I chose it (and I designed it myself, so know that no one else has the exact same thing on their body!). Continue reading
