Happy November!! I’ve said before; I love the crisp fall air and I love autumn fashion. I’ve done “outfit of the day” posts randomly in the past, but recently I’ve been more inspired than ever. I’ve received emails from women who’ve shared with me that they look up to me for promoting my curvy figure. It really struck a chord with me and made me think about how extremely important it is for all healthy women to embrace their bodies and curves.
There was a period of time where I was very uncomfortable in my body. I fought with an eating disorder for a few years. About five years ago I decided to give up worrying about weight and label size and to really start focusing on health, love & acceptance. I’ve finally learned to accept the skin I am in and to work with what I have while still always striving to become a stronger, healthier person.
I will never be stick thin, it’s just not in my bones. And you know what? That’s okay. I don’t need to be skinny, thin or “average” by fashion standards. I just need to be me. I tried once to fit into the mainstream modeling world of “standards” and it left me looking frail and feeling constantly obsessed with all things weight. Whatever size or shape you are; love yourself and treat your body well. There are so many more important things in life than striving to be thin. I say, embrace your individuality. It makes life far more interesting, don’t you think? No two leaves are the same….just saying! They are each spectacular works of art!
