Be yourself

by Molly Moore
Looking down at Molly sitting naked in pool of sunlight with red Gladioli flower laying in her lap

To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself. When you are born a lotus flower, be a beautiful lotus flower, don’t try to be a magnolia flower. If you crave acceptance and recognition and try to change yourself to fit what other people want you to be, you will suffer all your life. True happiness and true power lie in understanding you, accepting yourself, having confidence in yourself.
~ Nhat Hanh

Why this quote?

Well I very nearly got rid of this image because at first glance all I could see was my not flat tummy and the stretch marks. I left it for a few days and then went back and edited it. Dropping the shadows a bit and upping the contrast. The result was you could see the stretch marks even more but I suddenly realised I absolutely did not care.

This is me.

It’s a really lovely image. I always try to not delete photos I react negatively to straight away. I give myself time to revisit in a different headspace and often I find the beauty there.

It’s so hard isn’t it. Getting past our perceived flaws and accepting them as part of ourselves.
