Am I the leanest I’ve ever been?
Am I rockin’ those size 4 jeans I was in near the beginning of the year?
Am I the lightest I’ve ever been?
But am I the strongest I ever been?
Am I still beautiful because I wear a size 8 and not a size 4.
Am I HEALTHY?
When I first started my journey in 2014 I honestly just wanted to be skinny.
And I wanted the number on the scale and in my jeans to reflect that.
I was so focused on that NUMBER..
That damn number 🤦🏼♀️
But being able to let go of that obsession, and by allowing myself to focus on growing mentally & physically as a person,
and understanding that regardless of the shape of my body through this journey,
I am still beautiful and worthy of all the good things that come my way.. has been the greatest lesson of all 🥰
It took me MANY years to learn that lesson,
but I’m glad I did ♥️
Because I can honestly look in the mirror and say that I love myself 🥰 and I can proudly say I am happy with the woman staring back at me 🙏🏻
And thats all that matters 🥰
PS: Walmart has these amazingly comfortable and cute flare leggings and im completely digging them 😍😍 #LoveYourself
Get in the habit of asking yourself, “Does this support the life I am trying to create?”
We live a society where it’s easy to believe that the answer is to do more.
I believe the answer lies in doing less.
In letting go.
In being willing to give up the things that keep us from the life we most desire.
Leaving, letting go isn’t an act of disloyalty. It is an act of radical self-love.
Let that sink in.
What are you willing to divest to live the life you say you want?
The steady job? The lackluster relationships? The places and spaces where you don’t feel valued?
Releasing what is no longer serving us is a powerful process to create change.

There are no guidelines to make a relationship work. There is only personal growth and self love.
When it comes to sexuality and love, so many of us have been conditioned by a lifetime of programming from our families, media, religious institutions, our teachers to believe our desires are wrong, shameful, unnatural, or irrational. Yet it’s completely “okay” for divorce rates to be high, stay in unhappy marriages knowing your partners cheating etc. Why do we want ownership over a person? Why do we expect them to fulfill all our needs?
Polyamory is not about having a sex free-for-all without permission from your partners, nor is this an opportunity to be deceitful or a form of cheating. There is a strong emphasis on ethical and responsible behavior. It takes more communication than the average but if two individuals are all about self growth, they can make it work.
Polyamory to me means to fully bare your soul to someone, to be completely honest about sexuality, identity, and dreams, to keep nothing back, and to hold space for your partner to do the same.
There is nothing more fascinating than to accept each other unconditionally, without judgment, and to know that you are in a safe place to express every aspect of yourself.
It takes another tier/level of healing and confidence. It involves little to no jealousy. Dosent mean you necessarily have sex outside the relationship but admire others beauty together. Truth is allowing your partner to feel free takes a ton of trust but then they are less likely to act on it as it would just be a desire they can express to you and then be over it. #polyamorous#openrelationship#freerelationship#confidence#trust#passion#desire
