Sarah Nicole Landry is embracing her stretchmarks.
On Tuesday, the Canadian influencer — also known as The Birds Papaya — took to Instagram to share a carousel of photos of herself posing in front of a black backdrop, wearing a white, sleeveless top and a pair of black underwear.
The mother-of-four paired the photos with an important message honouring her personal growth by respecting her body.
"To be made capable of growth without tearing or breaking is to stretch," she captioned the post for her more than 2.1 million followers. "So may these images serve as the warm embrace for every moment I cursed the magic of this.
"I wasn’t looking with my own eyes but by the lens I was conditioned to believe to be true," she continued. "So I see the magic now. Yet I do not always love it. But I will respect the hell out of it, for I am capable of growth without breaking."
In the comments, fans praised the Guelph, Ont.-native's inspiring reminder.
"OMG, these are amazing! You look so strong and powerful. I love it," an Instagram user wrote.
Another added: You are blowing my mind! I love all of this so much I could cry!"
"These are unreal," someone else commented.
"Here for this! You're amazing!" shared another.
A fan wrote: "Beautiful inside and out!"
In December, Landry shared another inspirational message about not letting insecurities get in the way of "joy."
Alongside two candid photos of her smiling with her youngest daughter, she penned a caption revealing that she was laying in bed scrolling her phone, she put her shirt over her double chin to hide it from her husband.
"I thought about how often we do that — cover-up. Hide. Delete. Edit, even. Flatter the 'unflattering' angles," Landry wrote, adding that doing so is the "erasure of joy."
To combat this, the content creator shared a photo with her daughter even though she found it "unflattering."
"I thought about that smile on my face. That absolute magical feeling of laughter and how by expressing it, I got this photo," she penned. "How beautiful is joy? I think it’s perhaps our most flattering angle."
