Every Body celebrates inclusivity and the representation of human beings in every shape and form.

Body-positivity can be a tricky thing. On the one hand, it鈥檚 amazing to recognize that all bodies are beautiful, but on the other, it can be hard to come to terms with our own bodies and our perceived flaws. As a woman in my mid-30s, I鈥檝e had many ups and downs in terms of my health, my size, and how I feel about my body. Long gone are the days that I believed that getting to the smallest physical size meant that I looked my best, but it鈥檚 hard to be proud of where I鈥檝e come when we鈥檙e still bombarded with images of the 鈥渋deal鈥 woman (who is gorgeous, but totally not me).

Now that the youngest of my three kids is two, I鈥檝e been able to take more time for myself and focus on my mind and body. With summer coming up, I鈥檝e felt both excited about the warm weather and mortified at the state of my 鈥渋mperfections.鈥 It鈥檚 as if the season change suddenly reminded me that I鈥檓 not the size six I used to be. So when Brooklyn rapper Miss Eaves released the video for her song, 鈥淭hunder Thighs鈥 yesterday, it was just the reminder I needed to love every inch of myself all year round.

With lyrics that include an ode to everyone鈥檚 favorite bod-flaunting summer garment, the sundress (鈥淭hick thighs, sundress, I鈥檓 looking good鈥), Miss Eaves even opens the song talking about her 鈥渃hub rub.鈥 This ode to women鈥檚 bodies is genuine and catchy, with a love-yourself attitude that comes through in the video too.

Women of all ages and skin types are represented in 鈥淭hunder Thighs,鈥 from the video鈥檚 pint-sized, sassy tween (Brianna, who Miss Eaves found through the video鈥檚 director) to the senior women rocking their leggings and crop tops. Every single woman in this video is inspiring me with her outfit and attitude, and it was exactly what I needed to see.

I know it seems ridiculous to say that one three-minute song was all it took, but it was. Last summer, still enjoying the first year (and beyond) of my baby鈥檚 life, I was proud of the body I had: It made my three perfect children and forever changed the way I see the world. But between then and now, with my baby in preschool and my eldest going into first grade, my self-image took a 180. For some reason, I鈥檇 developed the unrealistic expectation that my body would be smaller or more 鈥減resentable鈥 this summer. But it was always presentable, and its physical size has no bearing on what it can do.

Just hearing the refrain, 鈥淢om jeans all day, why you mad, tho?鈥 made me realize that the body I鈥檓 in is perfect. The fact that I can ride my bike for 20 miles, swim in the lake, and eat half a tub of ice cream should each be celebrated. While I know that all bodies (including my own) are flawless, sometimes we can all forget that we鈥檙e great just the way we are. Listening to Miss Eaves鈥 鈥淭hunder Thighs鈥 was just the reminder I needed.
