“Hey sister.
Wear the shorts.

I know, I know…
You see the dimples and the cellulite.

Who cares.
Wear the shorts.

Hey sister.
Wear the sports bra.

I know, I know.
You see the less than perfect abs.
You see the rolls.

Who cares.
Wear the sports bra.

Hey sister.
Wear the whatever.

I know, I know.
You see the imperfections.
You see the curves.
You see the scars.
You see the older more wrinkled more mature version of yourself.

Who cares.
Wear the whatever.

But hey, sister.
I see the beautiful you.

And I see a woman who deserves to feel beautiful in whatever she chooses to wear.

Confidence looks beautiful on you, sis.
Wear it proudly.

And when I see you show up, confidently, as yourself, I will be the girl to cheer you on and tell you that confidence looks gorgeous on you.

Wear it, sister.
Own it, imperfectly, beautifully.
Just wear it.”
