If there’s fear in taking an action or we’re doubting ourselves for advocating for something important to us because it may spark a rebuttal from friends, the only thing we need to doubt is the health of the friendship✨
Repost from @tessholliday using @RepostRegramApp - Another great day with @massy.arias 💪🏽 I’m posting this because I want to, because self care looks different to everyone & because I didn’t see fat bodies working out until I was an adult, and I wish I had. As someone who has lived in a larger body nearly all my life, folks that look like me are often ridiculed for being “lazy” or “unhealthy” when no one would say that about someone who is considered “slim”. We often feel like we have to prove ourselves and our worth, debate our “health” to total strangers... when the reality is we don’t owe that to anyone. Ya hear me: 🗣
All bodies are valid, all bodies deserve love, all bodies deserve respect, all bodies are good bodies & all bodies are beautiful.
Mental health is just as important as physical health. Some folks might live in bodies that you don’t consider desirable or perhaps you used to look like them, and do them and yourself a favor and keep your judgements to yourself. They are just as valid as you. They aren’t your “before” photos or your punchlines. Loving yourself takes time, and you can work out all you want, but if you don’t fix the insides, no amount of having a body that is “goaaaaals” (🤮) will fix the self hatred. 🤷🏻♀️ #effyourbeautystandards
Song: @majorlazer “lean on”
#tbt to @curvefashionfes in Liverpool. being surrounded by incredible, beautiful curvy babes and for once feeling noticeabley less insecure about my size was such an empowering experience. meeting @fullerfigurefullerbust and @jessontheplussize was so lovely and one of the things that has pushed me to living my best and unapologetic curvy life just like they do 💞✨
I choose to be me🌟
I chose to show up in my online space as authentic, bubbly, honest and raw as I can. Because this is the journey I've chosen to share...this is me, Simone Marie. The same person my family and friends know me as, and I love it that way.🌸
I have often heard “oh but your skinny”. The thing with self love and body positivity is that it doesn’t go target someone and say “hey, I’m choosing you to not love yourself”
we ALL have these moments.
Your mental health is equally just as important as your physical health. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We need to celebrate ALL women and include ALL women when it comes to being body positive. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
To be apart of this amazing opportunity would allow me to continue my message and contribute to this movement by being the change as a positive impact for all women and our younger generations in learning to love, accept and embrace ourselves for who we are.
Self love is a journey with no final destination. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Most days I remind myself don’t fit and change to suit society instead bring to the surface what society needs💗 #SGxNAMmodelsearch
I’m gonna start posting random/artsy/aesthetic/nature photos this year! I’m gonna add that to my resolutions. And I know I said I wasn’t going to make any resolutions but I changed my mind.
My resolutions for 2019 are:
1) love, let go, & accept. I have to learn to love myself more & to love those that are dedicated to misunderstanding me from afar. & I have to let go of those people to allow myself to move on with my life. And lastly I have to accept myself, entirely. Whilst also accepting the fact that some people, that I love, may not be okay with my changes & that they may never be okay with it.
2) go back to creating art. I’m going to draw more, make short videos again & take photos of things, people and places.
3) finalize my tattoo journey. I need to get 4 more tattoos to complete my tattoo collection. I’m going to finalize it this year, no matter what! I’ve already had to push back one of my tattoo sessions because of money issues, but I’m still making a promise to myself to get all my work done within the next three months.
4) make more long lasting relationships, both online and in person. I have so much love to give! And since I don’t have children yet, I want to shower my friends with love and happiness!
And that’s about it!
I love you all and I hope this new year brings you lots of happy changes! 🎈💞💘 #newyear #newyearnewme #changes #newyearresolution #aesthetic #aestheticedits #aesthetictumblr #selflove #loveyourself #loveyou #positivevibes #positivequotes #positivity #inspiration #inspirational #inspiring #bodypositive #bopo #effyourbeautystandards #love #flowers #flowerstagram #flowerpower #naturelovers #nature_photo
