I was sitting at home the other day and looked down at my legs. I saw my stretch marks and there was nary a negative thought that ran through my mind about them. Whether you call them “tiger stripes,” “roadmaps,” or “mommy medals” your stretch marks are nothing to be ashamed of.

I know we’ve been taught that our bodies must be flawless to be sexy, that any sign of growth should not be ornamented on our bodies, but I say F-that. This is my body and I embrace it as it is. These beautiful marks are signs of my growth. And to the mommies out there, they are evidence of the beauty of the life you have created.
