An Ode to Real Women

I am most comfortable in jeans and t-shirts, I don’t own Gucci bags or Prada shoes.
I am by no means beautiful, I am not Kate Moss, Linda Evangelista, or Christy Turlington.

I have no desire to pose for Playboy, or spend hours each day doing my hair.
I am a ‘real woman’, happy with my reflection, not living in obsession, or superficial perfection.

I embrace my flaws for what they are, a unique part of what make me, me.
I live my life the way I desire whether it suits the image of the media or not.

I am a ‘real woman’, happy with my reflection, not living in obsession, or superficial perfection.

I don’t choose fashion over real life, or compromise myself just to “look good.”
Sometimes my mascara runs, my hair is knotted, and I have stains on my shirt.

I eat greasy burgers and salty fries instead of salads or tictacs’ for lunch.
I don’t count every calorie, workout 4 hours a day or starve myself.

My usual attire may leave much to desire on the runways of Paris, but it fits my life just fine.
There are not fancy dresses, diamonds or tiaras. I am a woman, a parent, a person, a wife.

I am a ‘real woman’, happy with my reflection, not living in obsession, or superficial perfection.

I am me, unique and content just as I am.
I do not need make-up to make me feel sexy, expensive clothes to make me feel pretty, or a man to make me complete.

I am a ‘real woman’, happy with my reflection, not living in obsession, or superficial perfection.
