It's time to get in front of the camera!

Alright. It's time for some real talk.

I can't tell you how many times I've heard the following:
"Oh, I just gotta lose a few pounds! I'll get in the photos next time!"
"Ha! I haven't taken a photo with my kid since the day they were born.."
"Sorry guys, granny doesn't feel pretty today, I'll get in photos next time!"
"Ah! Don't take a pic of me! I look horrible!"
"I haven't even done my makeup. That's ok!"
"Only if you can photoshop a new face and body on me! Haha!"

Seriously?!

When did it become ok to put ourselves down to such a low level that we're perfectly ok degrading ourselves and our self worth in front of a relative stranger?

When did "normal" become something to be embarrassed about?!

When did we stop taking photographs with our children because someone, somewhere, will judge us?!

I'm telling you now, this has got to STOP.

Your children do not care about the couple little pounds you've put on since your High School days. It just makes you softer to lay on!
Your children do not care about the grey hairs coming in. It just proves you've grown as a human being.
Your children do not care about the spider veins. Seriously. You're the only one staring at them.
Your children do not care that you have no make up on. In fact, they probably only think makeup is for mommy and daddy date-nights anyway!

Your Grand Children do not care that you look like a grand mother/father. Because guess what? You. Are.

These children are going to look back at their childhood and say, "man, we sure had some great times!" Not, "wow, Mom! Look at your butt!"

If you do nothing else today, get your camera phone (something you're probably reading this on, anyway!), and take a selfie with your child. Now repeat that process every day. Now look at yourself. There is NOTHING wrong with you. Your child sees a GODDESS. Start acting like it!

And the next time you come to see me, don't hide. Flaunt your Goddess Self!!
**and yes, this means taking photos with your significant other as well! Your children will LOVE seeing you two happy!**

Here's some Goddesses I've come to adore over the years :)
