"My thighs are so sexy, they can't stop rubbing each other." @uniquevintage
.
Story time: When I was a teenager I sat on the swings at an amusement park and watched in horror as my thighs and hips spilled out over the sides of the metal bars. I blushed at how my fat fanned and I was convinced everyone noticed as well, yet oddly felt invisible. It's tragic how body image issues can rob us during life's happiest, most care free moments.
.
I now adore my abundance of body and spirit, and know that I am anything but invisible.

🔥Just casually sitting here in this chair Khaleesi-style in all my Dragon Baby glory, waiting to incinerate the first man who thinks he needs to save me. 🔥#thanksnothanks #yearofthedragon #dracarys. And with that, there's nothing cold about the Cold Shoulder bodycon by @DebShops. #OotDeb

Don't ever forget that you are a magnificent work of art, the stuff of statues; your body a canvas and your soul, bursts of incandescent color.

A man wrote me today upset, asking, "Do you not have any boobs?!?!????" as though it's something I personally owe him and how dare I forget to pick some up on the way home from the grocery store? I found myself mildly triggered by the question, because for a long time I *was* unhappy with my breasts, wishing they were bigger, higher, fuller, and not set three inches apart. It took a long time for me to accept my natural body and decide that getting myself sliced open and stuffed with plastic in a potentially risky surgery (technically multiple surgeries) for conformity wasn't the right choice for me (although I know many women who are VERY happy with that choice and I applaud them for their self awareness). I was going to respond to him, but I realized it would be lost on a narrow mind, so instead I write to all the women out there:
.
🌻If you have small breasts: you are worthy and beautiful.🌻If you have breasts that touch your belly button: you are worthy and beautiful.🌻If all your junk went mainly to your trunk: you are worthy and beautiful.🌻If you had your breasts removed because of cancer: you are worthy and beautiful.🌻
If your breasts are tubular, wide set, hang lo and wobble to and fro: you are beautiful.🌻If your breasts are the size of cantaloupes: you are worthy and beautiful. 🌻If you just have nipples: you are worthy and beautiful. 🌻If you have a set of perfectly sculpted implants: you are worthy and beautiful. 🌻And if you have disco balls for breasts: you are worthy and beautiful.🌻
.
You will never be enough, until YOU decide that you're enough.

You're staring at a woman who was bullied a LOT growing up; cruelly bullied, ostracized, and mocked, as so many of us were/ are. It's sad to me that I spent so much of my childhood and youth desperately wishing I was "in" with the very cliques that hurt me, constantly apologizing, hiding, and longing to be accepted. And there are still triggering moments when that inner child comes out screaming "like me, like me, please!" into the faces of the unkind, judgmental, and mean spirited.
.
But we have to remind ourselves of our value, our kindness, and our worth: "No my love, you don't need to impress them; they need to start impressing YOU."

Featured: the "cold shoulder" bodycon from @debshops. Love the nod to the off-the-shoulder trend! Brushing the bullies off my shoulder and out of my life like what 🙌🏼✌🏼]
