She concludes the post, "They aren't scars ladies, they're stripes and you've earned them. Flaunt that body with pride!"
Yep. New favorite person alert. We have a winner: Rachel Hollis!
Hollis tells Cosmopolitan that the response has been overwhelming.
"People have been so positive and writing the most beautiful, inspiring things," said Hollis. "I'm totally humbled be everyone's reaction."
