I am beautiful, I am autonomous. Each time I get out of the shower, I stand in front of the mirror admiring its reflection. My body is mine and it does not ask for an opinion because it is not wrong. A cropped jacket exposes my midriff because I want it to, not because it is seeking your validation.
I put on a full bodysuit to seduce myself because I am sexy and love myself first and foremost. Being in tune with my values makes me a woman that owns her presence with mindfulness, not with permission from others. The space that I occupy in this world is sacred – it does not exist because a gender role allowed it to be.
I am independent and in control of my future, paving my own path when others say there isn’t a way to get things done. I don’t sit like a lady because I come with my own set of values and I sit however I want. I break the rules because I have learned to appreciate the unconventionality that fuels my personality on my daily grind.
Ladies, break free from society’s expectations because your worth is based on the guidelines you define. Your body is yours and not the property of others.
