  • The more you dream in life 
The more you’ll succeed 
Setting life rules 
And boundaries is how u find urself stuck 
Life is about being open 
And finding new opportunities 
God doesn’t put us on the world to do nothing 
He puts us here for a reason and sometimes that reason is that u need to find yourself
And to do that you need to spread ur wings and fly 
You never know where life will go next 
So live and love everything u do on a daily basis because it’s helping build “You” 
Don’t forget that🥴❤️

  • There’s something I want to point out. First, our pup Fergus says hello. He worked out with me today. Next and most importantly, you can love your curves AND love working out. Working out doesn’t always equate to trying to “get skinny.” I think all bodies are good, curvy and skinny. If your goal is to workout to lose weight or inches and you’re being healthy about it, good for you! If you’re working out because it makes you happy even though you don’t have a specific goal or result you’re aiming for, good for you! Both types of people can exist.
.
.
Unpopular opinion: curvy women can be fit and healthy, and skinny women can be fit and healthy. Let’s not use exercise as a weapon in that division. Let’s just unite and all love ourselves.
.
.
I workout because strength is important to me. My daily routines are my “me time.” It’s the one thing I do for myself other than blogging. It feels great, and it allows me to keep up with my toddlers. I’m a curvy woman who loves to workout. If I don’t lose inches or lbs, I’m happy with that. It’s time we stop the division and assumptions. Just be kind to your body and other humans.

  • Thank you! From the bottom of my ❤, for writing to me and to open up your hearts and emotions. Reading your stories I understand your pain because I felt it myself. We are not alone! We are together in this journey towards self-acceptance and learning to love ourselfs.
.
The only one I was hiding from was myself. I was a closed and sealed book. I needed to read myself, page by page to uncover the wellkept secret that I was enough just like I am. It took time and it was many sleepless nights with never ending tears and anxiety, confronting
the self-hate that I had been feeding my mind with for so many years.
.
In one page, I got to discover that this is not only about me! My friends, family and other women out there are suffering from the lies that also lives in them.♥️
.
To hate myself I could endure for many years. But you not loving yourself and not seeing your own value, breaks my heart. .
Girl, do you know how beautiful you are just the way you are? Do you know the lies you tell yourself are not true?🙏🙏💕
.
I can not tolererate you not loving and accepting yourself. So if being myself and loving myself in any way can contribute to you accepting and loving yourself more - I will do this for you because it is not only about me anymore. It is about us.🦋🦋💕💕💕 #aboveimportant

  • I am the strong friend that nobody ever asks, "Are you okay?" And for the most part I am! It could be because I've mastered the art of first loving me and not allowing myself to feel, or entertain certain things. Afterall, I'm the girl that has it together right?! This past weekend,  I was the target of cyber bullying 😔. Yes, I know 
right! Some people will stop at nothing to make you feel less than, or simply inadequate. However, I'm here to encourage someone just like I've been encouraged by so many people, some I've never even met ❤. Realize, that no one has the power to make you feel any type of way, whether good or bad! You hold the key to your own happiness! You are strong, You are beautiful, You are YOU and that's what makes YOU so wonderful!

  • So I got asked recently, why I post selfies to promote positivity. As I was thinking about how to answer this question simply, I realized there is no simple answer. It started off as a way for me to help build my own self confidence, and maybe feed the very small, little narcissistic part of my ego that needed a tiny bit of attention that it very rarely got. Then I got a job with a leading plus size retailer and had access to fashion that I could never afford or would purchase, but I could put on and show how the pieces looked on a body that was not model shaped, a.k.a. short, round, with no ass or breasts. Then I statrted getting requests to show how certain things looked on my body type, i.e. swim tops, dresses, jeans, styled outfits, etc. I also started playing with makeup and very rarely hair looks. This page also became a place where I could put my humor and post things I found personally inspirational, hoping others. Would find them the same. Over the last few years that I've had this page I've grown from an unconfident people pleasing girl into a dgaf confident woman who has become her own person and is out to help inspire the confidence it took her 36 years to find in others. I want to use this page as a way to say, "If my fat ass can do this and feel good, and beautiful, and confident, and amazing, anyone can!" Even if it's only one person, then I've done my job.

  • FRIENDS DON'T LET FRIENDS TALK FAT💛 
It happens ALLLLLL THE TIME. 
Especially among women. 
I have sat at so many tables, meetings, gatherings where the only topic anyone seems to flock to is the F word. 
A desire the fix this, lose that, enhance this, plump up that- IT'S EXHAUSTING.

Here's what I do when the conversation goes that direction- tell them they're perfect just the way they are, then change the subject! 
Here's some of my go to re-routing questions:

Tell me about where your grew up! 
Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 
What's the craziest thing your kids have ever said to a stranger? 
What do you think about the Kardashians?😜
What's a habit you wanna pick up? 
Just to name a few! 
Next time you're in a conversation where humans are trash taking their own bodies- tell them they're perfect just the way they are & change the subject 💛 #betterbodylove

  • we have gotten used to reducing women to EITHER/OR- either smart or feminine, warm or intense, mother or blood-boiling femme fatale. ⠀⁣
⠀⁣
but in reality women have always had AND at their center. ⠀⁣
⠀⁣
at the Modern Woman Festival we return to the reality of femininity. Celebrating, nurturing and supporting all faces of Feminine. ⠀⁣

  • “I’ve been so bad this weekend.”
“I’ve gained 15 pounds!”
“My jeans don’t fit anymore!”
▫️
I’ve said them all...and I’m guessing so have you!
▫️
We think our food intake can directly impact the number on the scale, which obviously dictates our self worth (note: sarcasm)
▫️
I’m here to tell you it’s all bullshit. When you slow down, ditch the diets and listen to your body...you body is just that...YOURS!
▫️
When in my eating disorder, when I swung from restriction to binging to purging and everything in between, my body could fluctuate massive weight in a matter of a weekend.
▫️
I thought it was all my fault because I was bad. This week was prove that our bodies are our greatest gift.
▫️
I’m pretty sure I’ve had approximately 25 lbs of crawfish, sausage, étouffée, farmers market lettuce and veggies and fried shrimp (catfish, oyster, etc)...basically living my best life at home.
▫️
And guess what? This morning I tossed on my new jeans (Old Navy Rockstar...clearance duh!) and they fit. Like. An. Effing. Glove. Because my body is MINE...no more massive weight swings because I eat intuitively. I enjoy food and more importantly the people that come with it. Louisiana culture is built on food. I’m so thankful to enjoy it and the memories we make while eating!
▫️
Intuitive eating take time and practice...but it’s worth it. Trust your body...not the bullshit fad diets or serving sizes. Enjoy food. Enjoy life. 💕
