Conceived during a dream in May 2018. As soon as I woke up, I grabbed a pen and wrote ‘the beautiful belly project’ on a tiny sticky note because I was given the nudge. I left it alone for weeks but would glance at it every day and would start feeling sparks in me as I started feeling ideas of the conversations this could start, the emotions it could trigger and the love or hate it would bring forward.
And then I started talking to women, sharing with them my own deep, personal story of my own pain and love-hate relationship with that part of my body -- that sacred space -- my belly - a part of my body that always felt disconnected from me. And i would also share the healing that started when I started to learn how to love it and accept it and this conversation created a kind of magic that was contagious and exciting.
So I started speaking with friends, with women I would meet in a coffee shop, or at the spa or at a store I was shopping at and I found one big thing in common. All of these women were all leaning in, telling me that they, too, had a story and this scratchy note of an idea actually resonated deeply and personally with them. And then I would hear, “How can I share my story. How can I help or be a part?”
And so now The Beautiful Belly Project was real. And so here I am to share with what I would love to do moving forward and how you can be a part of it. (My personal story is on the Blog so be sure to take a peek after this!)
If you’d like to be one of the women who wants to continue this conversation with me, and is open to not only sharing your powerful #beautifulbelly story, but also allowing me to create a beautiful photograph that captures your essence and story, I’d be honored to do this with you!
I believe every woman has a story to tell. And when that story is connected to our #beautifulbelly, it is powerful, deep and oh-so freeing!
So are you ready to join me in The Beautiful Belly Project!? I’d be honored if you say yes!
