Being positive

This is prompt week on Sinful Sunday. But as I mentioned in my last post, I am not a lover of Halloween, therefore I make no excuse for not following the prompt.

Instead I want to show you another (in what might be a series) of photos where I proudly show you my body. I am preparing for my reconstructive surgery and as I do so feel better about sharing what my mastectomy looks like.

This is the third (and final) photo from our recent trip to Oxford. I think you can see here that I am much more at home in my body. More positive and confident. This has been a journey I don’t recommend, but one which I am happy to share.

I stand at the window of our hotel on a beautiful morning. The view behind is the historic buildings of the Oxford University Schook (back). I am standing proudly showing my body. I have one breast - the right removed in a mastectomy last year.

  2. I agree with Eye there is something to determined and strong about the way you are holding your head. You look proud and bold and that is very sexy

  4. Oh Julie – what a fantastic image <3 You are one the bravest women I have had the pleasure of meeting and it is so wonderful to see you stand strong, powerful and utterly kick ass <3 You are an inspiration x

  5. Beautiful picture, Julie. I don’t know if you enjoy stand-up but I watched a comedy special tonight by Tig Notaro, from 2016, filmed after her double mastectomy and she does the majority of the act completely topless. It was quite incredible to watch a woman discuss such personally vulnerable moments in such an exposed way. I appreciate your candidness so much and I applaud your positivity.

  6. Wow Julie – this is an awe inspiring image. Your face reflects strength and positivity and your stance says “hey this is me” – you are brave and wonderful woman xx

  7. I love the way the soft light lands on you in this strong and confident pose. The way you have shared your journey has been amazing and I am sure I am not alone on being grateful. This image is such a powerful one that it has taken me a while to find what to say. You absolutely rock.

  8. Strong, proud, resilient and beautiful. Incredibly moving and hopeful post and image Julie, I thank you for sharing your incredibly personal journey with us all x

  9. So happy to read your words about feeling positive and confident. And also your words about getting your blogging mojo back in your other post.
