"I'll admit that my wrinkles get to me periodically, but I've begun to see them, in part, as battle scars from some serious life challenges over the years. I also see them as beauty marks, in a way, because they symbolize that I survived all those challenges." ~ #AgePo Saturday with @finally_bopo ❤️⠀

"Not sure why I look so pensive but I'm not going to retake a photo which is a big deal for me.⠀
⚘⠀
Weirdly, this isn't a filtered photo. But it's still photographic smoke and mirrors. The wrinkles on my face smooth out when I lie down!!! Plus, I have on makeup. LOL.⠀
⚘⠀
But you can see that my eyes and forehead are quite wrinkled. I'll admit that my wrinkles get to me periodically, but I've begun to see them, in part, as battle scars from some serious life challenges over the years. I also see them as beauty marks, in a way, because they symbolize that I survived all those challenges. The wrinkles around my eyes remind me that, even during the darkest times, I was able to find something to smile about or had wonderful family and friends make me laugh even through tears.⠀

Really, in the grand scheme of things and in holding life up against the backdrop of Eternity, how important are physical characteristics in defining one's beauty or worth?⠀

Reflections: The older I get, the less tolerance and time I have for bullshit. Life is too short to give your mental energy to people and things that don't matter. This includes my own bullshit: worrying about things in the future, things outside of my control and other people's opinions. Don't waste time on it... go live the life that's in front of you.

ALL BODIES ARE SUMMER BODIES. You don't have to "get your body ready." 👇👇⠀

"Summer is around the corner in most of the US. We've seen PLENTY of posts with amazing #FatWomenOfColor struttin', shinin', and flexin' in their suits. So just in case you you need some inspiration, here are some MORE of our favorites. °⠀

P. S. "Don't let body shaming from others or even YOURSELF hold you back from having fun in the sun. Whether it's a bikini, one piece, or even your favorite shorts and crop top, just go THRIVE. Life is too short to be cooped up in the house all Summer long!"⠀

Fuck all that “bikini body” bullshit and feeling like you “should” look different than you do. The Body Image Remix program is starting on June 1st and is perfect if you’re newer to doing body image work. It’s designed to give you the fundamental steps to take to stop caring so much about the way you look and feel more badass. ⠀
.⠀
Plus, this cycle comes with 2 bonus coaching calls to get individualized support and cheerleading from me to help you rock this! 🔥bodyimageremix.com

REMINDER: You don’t need to put up with someone judging, shaming you or putting you down. You have every right to cut ties with individuals who don’t treat you with unconditional respect. ⠀
.⠀

Don’t stay in a relationship with someone because you think you “should" or are afraid you won't find better. You deserve to be treated like the queen that you are. 👑

Yes, I went there. I wasn’t going to record this topic because I recognize the Body Positive movement isn’t about me. BUT, this question comes up so often that I felt I needed to hash out some stuff and vocalize my stance. This isn't about shaming anyone or judging others for what they choose to do. It's about taking a step back and understanding what the movement is all about and who it's fighting for. .⠀

In this week’s episode of #FearlessRebelleRadio I’m talking about the Body Positivity and weight loss debate, blowing up the quote “you can still love your body and want to change it” and answering other common questions associated with this debate.

*if you can’t make it live, you’ll get a recording!

When you deny your instincts and run from your emotions, you turn to coping mechanisms such as dieting and fixating on your body to give you a sense of control. In order to heal body image, you must begin to tune in to these things. ⠀

Anita Johnston @lightofthemooncafe gives you 3 questions to ask yourself to tune into your intuition, as well as the art of feeling emotions in this week’s episode of #FearlessRebelleRadio

I know it's not #AgePo Saturday yet, but I could not wait to share this gem from @silvanadenker
...⠀
"Two weeks ago six very special, strong and beautiful women visited me for a photoshoot. All of them are older than 40 (I´m allowed to tell you ;)), they are women with small and bigger sizes, different shapes, with or without tattoos, with rolls, dimples or wrinkles and with their own life stories. With the photos I want to show that also women in their best age who don´t fit the ideal of beauty the media sell us every day look amazingly beautiful. Who defines what beauty is? Who told us that cellulite is something "unnormal" although 85-90% of all women have it? I think every single woman on the pictures is gorgeous and I´m very thankful they trusted me and posed for this photoshoot. <3 #nude #bw_lover #women #strong #bestage #bw #bw_crew #everybodyisagoodbody #silvanadenker #photographer #loveyourself #bodylove #theresnowrongwaytohaveabody #nowrongwaytobeawoman #everybodyisagoodbody #nohate #photo #bw_photooftheday #sizedoesntmatter #bodypositive"
