A real woman…

A real woman knows it’s ok to have saggy boobs because she’s knows they are there for a purpose.
A real woman has strong big arms because she’s able to hold her babies all day. Plus, she still have the strength to lift them up as they get older and fall asleep on the couch.
A real woman is allowed to have dark circles around her eyes. As caregivers, mothers, wives, and/or professionals, their dedication is endless and many times puts others before her own needs.

A real woman can have rolls on her body and be proud of it.
A real woman is allowed to love herself, know her worth, be proud, without being conceited.
A real woman is not perfect. She has flaws, makes mistakes, keeps learning, and keeps growing.
A real woman should never feel embarrassed of her scars, her uniqueness, and her body.
A real woman is beautiful in all ways, shapes, and forms.
A real woman just is.
Dedicated to ALL the women in the World. Never forget that you are perfect and beautiful exactly how you are and/or choose to be.
