Body Shaming

There is nothing more rare, nor more beautiful, than a woman being unapologetically herself; comfortable in her perfect imperfection. To me, that is the true essence of beauty.”
Steve Maraboli, Unapologetically You: Reflections on Life and the Human Experience

It is my body

I love it 

I am comfortable in it 

It is not too heavy for me 

Neither does it occupy too much space than necessary 

I love what I see in the mirror

body shaming

My clothes fit

I don’t struggle to wear that jean

My blouses sit beautifully on my bosom 

Stop being overtly dramatic about my size each time you see me

It is who I am

 

 

Stop making a big deal out of my choice 

Stop telling me what to eat

Stop teaching me how to eat

Stop giving me recipe

I am an adult

I know what I want 

The fact that you can eat what you like

And get away with it

Doesn’t make you any better than me

 

Providence has smiled on you, fine

But this is who I am

This is what I am

It doesn’t make me less of a woman 

Neither does it affect my life choices

I am big and I love every bit of it

“Step Away from the Mean Girls…
…and say bye-bye to feeling bad about your looks.
Are you ready to stop colluding with a culture that makes so many of us feel physically inadequate? Say goodbye to your inner critic, and take this pledge to be kinder to yourself and others.

This is a call to arms. A call to be gentle, to be forgiving, to be generous with yourself. The next time you look into the mirror, try to let go of the story line that says you’re too fat or too sallow, too ashy or too old, your eyes are too small or your nose too big; just look into the mirror and see your face. When the criticism drops away, what you will see then is just you, without judgment, and that is the first step toward transforming your experience of the world.”
Oprah Winfrey

    The quote frome Steve Maraboli resonates with me. It is not everyday you find a woman comfortable and at peace with her body. Thanks for the stirring call to arms.
