"This photo shoot has taught me more than I ever thought possible. Since doing it I’ve thought a lot about self care, self love, and about accepting myself. This body has grown and birthed four children, has carried me and all my chaos for 37 years, and all I’ve done is punish it, mentally and physically. I’ve now made a pact with myself to take better care of myself going forwards. My mind, my body, my spirit and my world including my family and my surroundings. I wouldn’t usually post pictures like this, because I would feel ashamed, or embarrassed or like I shouldn’t show myself to the world. But fuck it. It’s my body my mind my choice. There’s no shame in being proud of the person that you are and I want to be proud of myself, I want to be a good person. It’s time to put me first so I can be a better person for the ones I love. Change is a hard one, but it’s never too late for change. We get one shot, gotta do the best we can right?"
