Stretch Marks are Now En Vogue? Sweet!Meredith Carroll
Every once in a while something pops up on my computer screen that makes me want to kiss the Internet. Amazon.com. Diapers.com. Facebook. The condescending Wonka memes. I’d actually French the Internet itself if I could reach out and touch it. I love it that much.
Then there was this picture I saw today (on The Huffington Post, although apparently it’s everywhere) that likens a woman’s stretch marks to a thing of power, and it made me love the Internet just that much more. It says:
Your body is not ruined.
You’re a goddamn tiger who earned her stripes.
And I thought, Yup. That’s me. If having stretch marks means I’m accomplished, then I’m a Ph.D.
I’ll take it.
Hell, yes, I’ll take it.
Thanks again, Internet. I needed that today. xoxo
