A lot of women feel ashamed about their bodies, especially if they have some perceived or real imperfections that make them want to hide these parts forever.
Many would even opt to have these imperfections corrected via cosmetic surgery but there are also those who have learned to love their own bodies and have gained confidence in flaunting their flaws as these merely part of their person.
Rachel Hollis belongs to the latter group of women. She loves her own body – flabby tummy, sagging belly button, stretch marks, and all! This is also the reason why her bikini photo went viral.
During a holiday with her family at the beach, she wore a bikini despite this surely going to show her flaws. She did not mind because every flaw in her body has a story to tell. She knows that her husband loves her, even with her imperfect body.
Despite her flaws, Rachel looks stunning in her bikini
I have stretch marks and I wear a bikini. I have a belly that’s permanently flabby from carrying three giant babies and I wear a bikini. My belly button is saggy… (which is something I didn’t even know was possible before!!) and I wear a bikini. I wear a bikini because I’m proud of this body and every mark on it. Those marks prove that I was blessed enough to carry my babies and that flabby tummy means I worked hard to lose what weight I could. I wear a bikini because the only man who’s opinion matters knows what I went through to look this way. That same man says he’s never seen anything sexier than my body, marks and all. They aren’t scars ladies, they’re stripes and you’ve earned them. Flaunt that body with pride! #HollisHoliday
Rachel’s post quickly went viral, with plenty of moms also sharing their photos as well. With her simply bikini shot, Rachel was able to empower women. Kudos!

Badass Grandma Went Skydiving, Swimming with Sharks on her 100th Birthday!
Way to go Grandma!
Reaching your 100th birthday is an achievement enough. Most people don’t get to live that long. Those who reach their centenarian year are often confined to their houses or retirement homes, being tended by nurses who monitor these seniors’ delicate health.
Well, not THIS centenarian. When I learned about what she did for her 100th birthday, all the “extreme” stuff that I did felt so lame in comparison. Georgina Hardwood celebrated her birthday like no other centenarian can – she went skydiving. Damn, lady!

A Special Child Received No RSVPs to His Party… Then This Happened!
How do you make a special child feel extra special on his birthday?
What Odin Camus, a 13-year-old kid with Asperger syndrome, wanted for his birthday was something simple: for his 15 friends to celebrate with him at a bowling alley.
However, after handing out invitations to his friends, no one seemed to be interested to celebrate with him.
His mother, Melissa, didn’t want to let her son down on his special day. So she decided to get help from local moms in Ontorio Canada. Through an event she created on Facebook, Melissa was able to make Odin feel extra special by asking her friends to text him “happy birthday” ....

This story of a very unlikely best friends surprised a lot of people…
It is a story that surprised a lot of people – for how could a young boy, aged 4, be best friends with a 90-year-old war veteran? Well, the real question here is, “why not”? Who said best friends have to be of the same age?
Emmett Rychner and his parents had been neighbors with war veteran Erling Kindem for some time. The young boy would visit Erling at his home or the old man would hang out with the family for a chat.
As best friends, the two would spend hours chatting or would sometimes play with cars....
