"I had the immense joy of briefly working with and befriending @readytostare. The minute she decided to make her revolution by living her truth I knew I had to jump on that. My three least loved parts of my body: my big arms that are completely genetic on my Mom's side, the after effect of carrying twins and weight fluctuation makes my stomach hang down, and my back fat that when I see it on someone else can be so sexy is awkward and unattractive on me. The thing is though these are parts of me not the whole of me. I'm more than a number on a scale or on the tag in my pants. I am flawless because I'm fearless and because the sum of my parts is awesome. #readytostarewokeuplikedis is something I'm gonna wear to inspire and empower everybody. Love yourself like I love you. "

*being flawless isn't the absence of flaws; it's the absence of fear
