Everyone say hi to this week's Monday Muse Alexis, single supermom to two adorable twin girls McKinley and Crystal! Want to be my next muse? Click here!
I used to be the center of my universe. I spent my days completely preoccupied with myself; doing things that made me feel beautiful and having a lot of fun. These days I still have fun, but sometimes it's really hard. Sometimes I feel tired and alone and I want to cry. I never pictured my life turning out this way. And though there are fleeting moments of distress, I now know without a doubt that I am a woman in every sense and that I am absolutely amazing.
I love myself more than I ever did when I felt beautiful every day. I know exactly who I am and what I am made of. Giving birth to my two babies has shown me what my body is capable of. I respect it so much more now. I don't value my body according to the number on the scale anymore.
I am so honored and thankful to have been given the most important job in the world. Sometimes I don't feel worthy of the task. To help guide and nurture these two beautiful, amazing girls into incredible women whom I will help realize early what took me 23 years to figure out: That they are incredible and amazing, beautiful, and capable of everything wonderful in this world.
And with her girls after running a benefit for cancer marathon!
