TT.9 | THIGH GAPS… REALLY THOUGH?! xM&W
Today, I took a trip to Walmart. I needed to get some spray paint for a DIY project. I’ll be sharing the juicy details with you later this week. But as I was walking out, clothed in a t shirt and Soffe shorts, I looked down and it hit me…
I’M SO THANKFUL TO HAVE MY SELF-ESTEEM!!!
Like really though! Feeling good about yourself is something that a lot of females struggle with. But even after having my twins, I never was really as weight conscious as a lot of people can be. I’m my biggest cheerleader, I think.
Now don’t get me wrong, I still feel the need to get down to my pre-pregnancy weight! I’m 20 pounds over. But I’m not stressing because I don’t have a thigh gap anymore. I’m happy in my skin.
Oh, what’s a thigh gap?
I know right. *Biggest eye roll known to man.* It’s exactly what is sounds like. A gap. Between your thighs. And people FREAK over it.
I don’t see why people go crazy over having or not having this thing. THIS post even talks about why every girl should have one!
Okay, okay! I admit! That post is a sarcastic rant BUT I just had to share it with you!
But really, after I found THIS post, I made the decision to love me. All of me! Since then, I have become so incredibly embracing of my stretch marks and bodily flaws – Gods idea of a beauty marks! It’s pretty refreshing!
The way I see it, I’m a black girl without a booty. Thicker thighs are Gods way of helpin’ a sistah out! I may not have much junk in my trunk, but I sure do have air in my tires!
“So then, banish anxiety from your heart and cast off the troubles of your body, for youth and vigor are meaningless.”
Simply put, I’m thankful for the vessel that He created for me to live in on this earth. For its beauty and strength, resilience, flaws, marks, scratches. Even for it’s lack of gapage between my thighs!
Yes, I said gapage!
So, what are you thankful for this week? I’d love for y’all to join in on #ThankfulThursdays! It’s so liberating to share my thanks with the world!
