Loving your body can be incredibly challenging, especially for women. We live in a society where small sizes are the norm and people strive to lose weight to be liked and idolized by others, with hopes of fitting into that norm. We live in a society where the media Photoshop the bodies of celebrities to make them appear more curvy in the “right places” and thinner as if something were wrong with being a size 8, 9, 10, 11, or 12 and having curves all over. Several issues can develop from not loving and accepting your body including depression, anxiety, self-consciousness, emotional and physical damage, and in some cases self-harm and suicide.

We may not always feel love towards our bodies but honoring, accepting, and respecting that our body is a vital part of who we are is very important. I can see a change happening where more people are accepting their body and I love it! I am all about the uplifting and empowerment of women and I hope that more people start to realize that society has many flaws within itself and you shouldn’t look to that for acceptance and reassurance. If you feel that you want to make a change to your weight or shape you first have to accept how you are in the present to be able to make a change and work towards progression in the future. Remember that you are beautiful inside and out and the number on your scale doesn’t determine your self-worth. Love your body, and most importantly love your self, be good to yourself, and celebrate yourself.

Be Blessed & Stay Humble, thanks for reading.

Just a small girl in a big world chasing an even bigger dream. Philly girl trying to make a difference in the world. Why not start with a blog right? So enjoy while you’re here. 19 years young attending Temple University just trying to make it out and share my journey along the way. It’s rare to find females who still value themselves and possess morals and goals in this day and age but there are a few who still exist. I was given the gift to live, write, and feel free to express myself and so. . that’s what I’ll do. Welcome to my world, welcome to my life. Feel free to take a window seat and watch how it unfolds. Feedback is appreciated. I’m here to help, motivate, and share pieces of myself. God bless and best wishes. "There is an inner beauty about a woman who believes in herself, who knows she is capable of anything that she puts her mind to. There is a beauty in the strength and determination of a woman who follows her own path, who isn’t thrown off by obstacles along the way. There is a beauty about a woman whose confidence comes from experiences; who knows she can fall, pick herself up, and move on."

  1. I’m planning to tighten up for my birthday, but I genuinely love my body the way it is. Of course there are some adjustments I’d like to make, but I love it for what it is, and as someone who is young growing up in today’s society that’s rare but I agree that everyone should love themselves for who they are. It is important for peace of mind and for possible relationships. There’s always someone out there for everyone regardless of size.

    1. I agree because I too wish to tighten up but I’m also comfortable with how I look now. Sometimes it just takes time to become content with that and that’s okay because life itself is a work in progress.
