Beach season is nearly upon us, and one mom of three has a body positive message for all.

Rachel Hollis, 32, posted a photo of herself in a bikini on the Facebook page for her blog, 'The Chic Site,' and it quickly went viral for its inspiring message.

Hollis has three children, ages 8, 6 and 12. "I have a belly that's permanently flabby from carrying three giant babies and I wear a bikini. My belly button is saggy... (which is something I didn't even know was possible before!!) and I wear a bikini. I wear a bikini because I'm proud of this body and every mark on it," she wrote.

Hollis recently complete her first marathon and told Today.com that she was touched by the overwhelming response to the post. "I thought, it's not going to get better than this. You ran the 26 miles, and I had been training for six months. My body is never going to be smaller than it is right now, so if there's ever time to show off your belly, this is probably it," she said.
