Babe you're so hot right now
Summer time, where I grow immensely. After mixing rain and sun I tend to dry off the rain and blossom like a sassy sunflower. In my twenties I wasted so much time being utterly obsessed by how my body looked, having my sons young meant I didn't really acknowledge my body changing and I certainly didn't give it any praise for going through three healthy pregnancies without too much drama. I was consumed with what society was saying I should look like. I was so nasty to my body and abused it immensely, obsessed by staying on a number on the scales, even took them abroad with me. I found out way too late this was due to my undiagnosed OCD. I was incredibly self-destructive throughout my twenties and can't believe my body still lets me reside in it today.
My mindset has taking a huge shift over the last couple of years and I've become very fond of my body, I actually think its pretty hot just as it is. Women are not encouraged to say out loud that they actually like their reflection, it's viewed as loving yourself or being big-headed. Society keeps a tight grip on women's confidence and self-esteem, it makes a fucking killing out of us hating on ourself. Body goals is one of the most used hashtags, Lets just break that down... Body Goals, the body of another babe is your goal, you inspire to look like someone else and many women having gone to extreme lengths to try to make this happen. How is this a positive thing?
Look at another women's beauty without changing your own, what she lacks you could have a shit load off. You are not your dress size, sexy doesn't have a size but it does have a strong mind, being strong-minded will prevent you from falling prey to the pressure we get piled on. You are enough just as you are right now, you do not need to change your appearance, change your mindset, change your self talk (it sucks babe) If you want to lose weight, workout more, do that, it's incredibly important to look after your body and we should be exercising for our mind and body. Eating things that will help us focus and stay head strong but do it for you! Do it to better yourself, challenge yourself, DO NOT do it to attempt to look like some air brushed bullshit image. Learn to disconnect from the images you see, that's not reality. I absolutely love beautiful images, fashion is where I'm most inspired but I'm aware of what goes down and I choose to not be fooled or to make that my reality. Pressure is around every corner but you can choose whether you're going to succumb to it.
