But I can’t, so I won’t waste another breath over it.
Take away the connection, the pictures, hell take away all I have. Because at the merciful end, so I hope and this will do come, we’ll have nothing but the memories of it all. As scary as it is, that is all that will live. Nothing less and nothing more.
It’s not about waking up in the morning and saving the world. It’s about the fact that you do get to wake up into another day. It’s about the first step you take and that simple gesture of thank you of how you made it though the night.
Salimos a la noche porque todo se oscurece, se nubla y todo es confuso. Nuestro juicio se ve perjudicado por las sustancias que consumimos y por la falta de coherencia de nuestros pensamientos guiados por el placer y la audacia propia.
My recommendation for everyone- take more pictures using your outside camera. When you first see yourself inverted or on the outside camera to you think you look so much different to other people but it’s really just because you’re not used to seeing yourself like that. I used to be extremely insecure about how I looked on my outside camera but now I realize that I really don’t look that different. Trust me, it could help so much because it’s truly just because you’re not used to seeing yourself like that. Just remember- you’re beautiful no matter what ;) <3
She’s shared her turbulent body positivity journey with us and how she has done such a great job embracing self love. She also shared one of the first sets that she posted on tumblr. This set really made her “think wow, I am attractive and I should feel sexy and incredible in the body I’m in.”
Lets read the her full story below⬇️
“My body was a war zone. I have spent most of my life at odds with my body. Anything that I accomplished was overshadowed by my feelings of inadequacy in my own body. I could never be pretty enough, thin enough, or ever feel like I was enough to be worthy of anything. After 20 years of an eating disorder, multiple cancer scares, and life changing diagnosis of chronic illness, my body had finally met its limit. I couldn’t keep living the way I had for so many years. I had to recognize I was in an abusive relationship with my body and it was finally time to make a choice and I chose to appreciate the small things. Little by little I would be grateful for what my body could do and I began to realize that all those small things were finally enough. I was enough and with that I slowly began to build my confidence and begin the healing process. It is not an easy decision to choose to heal and love yourself, but every day I make the commitment to try.”
Self love can be accomplished through so many different facets. I practice self love through acts of service. I actively choose to do positive things for myself and make choices that promote my healing and overall health. These choices are not always easy but they are definitely worth making. Sometimes it is as simple as giving yourself permission to say no, or to step away from something that no longer serves you.
It’s also important to mention that the journey of body positivity doesn’t have to be a singular experience. I chose to love myself because I met someone who reminded me that my life was worth living. And helped me see that the small things were more than “enough” and that I was always enough.“
”I try to post all the pics I take no matter how uncomfortable they make me feel. I guess if you don’t mind, I’d share a photo I don’t normally post on my blog. One that’s of me fully clothed. Because sometimes I feel like people can forget body positivity doesn’t just apply when you’re trying to be confident through overt sexuality. It’s an everyday act of self love. I am more than just the photos I post. I’m hardworking, compassionate and passionate about so many things. I’m human and I deserve to love myself too.“

Please read her words below⬇️
“I have come to love my body, but it took a while
Body positivity is so important and i feel its crucial to love your body because its apart of you, which makes it apart of self love and self care”
To practice self love,
“Before I go to bed, I think of 3 things I love about myself. Nights have always been the worst for me in terms of beating myself up and letting my dark thoughts tell me how undesirable I am. So not only do I think these things, but I write them down too, so I have a journal that’s about 2 months full of things I love about myself and on my bad days, I read through it and maybe add some. I have a few repeats, but thats ok
Also, brushing my teeth, because my depression had convinced me that I didn’t need nice teeth because nobody would look past my size”
And finally about social media
“Even though I really only jut started doing it and there hasn’t been a lot of interaction yet, I feel good knowing that I love my body enough to want to show it off. And I would also like to think that maybe soon it would inspire others to do the same 💕”
