It's the first week of January, which means only one thing: "New year, new me."
Resolutions are kicking into high gear and goals are being set to attain the bodies of our dreams within the next 365 days.
However, some people are taking a different route in 2017 and simply embracing their flaws -- except for one inspirational chick named Molly Galbraith, that is.
The Kentucky-based fitness instructor recently posted a mirror selfie featuring her butt and an inspirational message on her Facebook page, and it's quickly gone viral.
In the post, the 32-year-old claims she isn't "embracing her flaws in 2017" because they aren't even "flaws" to begin with.
An excerpt from her message reads,
Hell yeah, Molly!
She's right. Who's to say your flaws are actually "flaws" to begin with?
In the rest of the post, Molly speaks about how she became ashamed of her "flaws" at a young age and how it's become a narrative where women feel the constant need to fix themselves.
However, she finally came to the conclusion that her body is flawless and there's no need for her to live up to someone else's standards.
Her post continues, and says,
Molly appears to be starting a trend of embracing your flawless body because her post has already accumulated 10,000 shares.
She's right, though. We shouldn't succumb to media and outsiders who tell us our bodies have "flaws."
We're the ones who should decide that -- and thanks to Molly, we don't have to "embrace our flaws" this year if we decide our flaws don't exist.
