Top - Monki / Shorts - Monki / Shoes - Vagabond / Sunglasses - Costo / Backpack - Grafea

There was a time when I would not have posted some of these photos. Actually, there was a time when I didn't even consider wearing crop tops that show some of my stomach. 

But I've come a long way from that. I love my body now so much more than I did a year ago, even though I'm some 9 kilos heavier than I used to be.  I have learned that positive body image does not come with weight loss, as I previously thought. Everything about body positivity is inside your head. 

I don't have a flat stomach, but that doesn't mean I can't rock crop tops. There is cellulite in my thighs, but there's no reason to photoshop it away. I have broad shoulders, somewhat round arms and wide hips, and I can't hide them in photos if I want to look like myself.

These remarks probably seem funny to some of you. "You don't need to worry about those things", you may say. And you're right. But aren't all of our insecurities just something silly we've made up inside our heads? We all have them, however needless they may be. You just have to fight them off and be proud. 

And I'm beginning to be proud.

p.s. This is a timed post and I'm in Switzerland now. Wee hee !
