There is only one of you. Your experiences, both good and bad, are all the beautiful things that make you, you. One of the greatest things you can do is own it.
This was and still is my message…so I never considered that sharing this message now — a few sizes smaller — would alienate some of the people I’ve connected to the most. This was like a dagger to my heart — did my message ever truly matter? Or was I just another face wearing nice clothes? 💔
There’s this myth that plus size bodies shouldn’t wear bright colors, as it brings unnecessary attention to our bodies. I definitely fell victim to this way of thinking, that I am big enough, I don’t need any added attention. However, I’ve learned that this couldn’t be any further from the truth!
It’s that time of the year again — Valentine’s Day! This year, I’m doing things a little differently. I am celebrating Valentine’s Day by showing myself some self-love, and joining Dia&Co’s #FullBodyLove Movement.
