This year @marieclairesa saw fit to extend an invite for me to be a part of their #NewNaked2018 #DearBody campaign. A campaign that seeks to empower women by giving them a platform to write a special letter to their bodies. I need to Express how incredibly terrified I am as I write this post because dispite my unending energy, zest, and love for life and living out my dreams, I do suffer from every evil of the mind that women struggle with daily. I too feel insecure sometimes; mainly when my hair won't do as I say , or even when I look into my closet and can't decide on what to wear. Yes, even I sometimes look up into the mirror or down at the scale and think "WTF, who are you? " . But the worst things I've said to myself were when I'd put my hands on my body and shame my rolls, my stretch marks and my breasts for being so tiny. Perfect, though they are (no, seriously, I have great boobs), I'd always wish they were just a little bit bigger. Anyway, I went ahead and wrote that letter to myself and my body. It was tough, but I did it. And, for the first time, I did something for myself without looking left or right for approval or applause. I said what I said and that was that. What is left is for me to believe it. And I think I do. If you had to write a letter to yourself, what would you say? I have an idea... start with #DearBody, tag Marie Claire and then just wing it! 😁 my letter will be in my stories. Xoxo, The Flame. #BlackGirlMagic Also: The Marie Claire New Naked Issue is out as of today! So many powerful women in this year's issue whose stories are so inspiring! Get your copy today!

#DearBody, I’m sorry for the times I’ve hated you, especially the face. You’re good to me - I mean it. You’re soft and curvy, and full of a life lived well (according to me, that is). And that is all I could ever want from you. To live life well. Thank you, Zodwa Wabantu
