YOOO it’s been a MINUTE since I made a real post, hasn’t it?? I’ve missed you all terribly, but I’ve also been enjoying my winter break from school, traveling (I went to Paris!), and just relaxxxxing. It’s been lovely.
Something new and big (for me at least) is that this year my resolution is to honor my body with the clothes I put on it. Intentionally. So often I find myself just pulling on leggings and a T-shirt, not because I want to be comfy (even though that’s super important and totally okay!) but because I didn’t feel confident in myself.
I don’t know how to shop for clothes (but I’m learning!) I would get mixed up in the dressing room, and if something didn’t make me cry or if I didn’t feel BAD about my body trying it on, I‘d think that meant I liked it. Or that it fit me well. And as a result my closet is full of either “comfort” clothes that hide my body, or clothes I bought out of sheer confusion.
So in 2019 I’ve made a promise to myself that I’m going to discover my personal style. I’m going to learn how to shop. I’m going to learn how to put outfits together. I’m going to learn how to honor a body I’m still, even now, and probably ever still, coming to know and love and take care of. .
Recovery looks like a lot of different things, in different ways, all at the same time. And I’m excited to take on this part of it.
