Yes! I agree with Tracy. It's a beautiful post you've written, Shanna. And, Tracy makes such a lovely point about the transformation into motherhood--almost like a caterpillar into a butterfly--the comparison just doesn't work--both are beautiful in their own, unique ways.

This is a great reminder for me as I am post-40 now and saying goodbye to the youthful expression of my body. Lots of transformation.

I'm grateful women are talking so openly about this now.

And, I'm proud of you for shifting your mindset to self-care and gratitude. You ROCK! <3
