Swimsuit season can be a daunting time of year for a lot of us. We don’t always feel 100% confident baring so much of our bodies, but we suck it up and do it for our kids. Because we need to be an example to them, and be an active participant in their summer memories, self-consciousness be damned. Hilary Duff took to her Instagram account yesterday to remind moms everywhere to be proud of what our bodies can do.
“I am posting this on behalf of young girls, women, and mothers of all ages,” she wrote alongside a photo of herself and her son enjoying their vacation.“Since websites and magazines love to share ‘celeb flaws’ – well I have them! My body has given me the greatest gift of my life: Luca, 5 years ago. I’m turning 30 in September and my body is healthy and gets me where I need to go. Ladies, lets be proud of what we’ve got and stop wasting precious time in the day wishing we were different, better, and unflawed.”
