#MoreThanBodies

MOST RECENT

Reality: 93% of the time I’m not a glamorous made-up sparkle puss — but rather a freckle face, cut off band tee, backward baseball cap wearing babe. What it boils down to is that it’s just exterior. And this exterior has nothing to do with who I am, my worth, value, nor the gifts I bring to the world. I repeat these words often, especially when the world tries to remind me how I “should” be.🖤

“Flowers are beautiful, but so are Christmas lights... and they look nothing alike.” Comparison is a thief of joy; be your OWN kind of beautiful.

Alles ist gut - genau so, wie es ist.
Dieser Ort.
Die Menschen, die dich umgeben.
Die Situation, in der du dich befindest.
Du.
Alles, was zu dir kommen soll, wird dich zur richtigen Zeit finden.
Alles, was gerade chaotisch erscheint, wird irgendwann so klar sein.
So viel Sinn ergeben.
Mach dir keine Sorgen.
Sei dankbar.
Sei präsent.
Achte auf deine Energie.
Mehr musst du nicht tun.
Du wusstest genau, was dich hier erwarten würde.
Du hast dich nur dazu entschieden, alles zu vergessen.
Und nun bist du hier, um dich zu erinnern. 🌌

Hi, guys. This is my body. It houses my mind, and my soul, and my spirit. My mind allows me to multi-task in a high stress career. My heart helps me care deeply for others. My spirit enables me to keep going, even when I face criticism. My legs carry me to the places I want to go, and my arms allow me to move heavy objects out of my way. My abs are strong from laughing at inappropriate times, and the dimples in my legs are proof of my love for wine and pasta.



When I first took this photo, I was tempted to bring my waist in a bit, to smooth out my legs, and to give my arms more definition... but then this photo wouldn’t be of me anymore, and it would lose its magic of being all of those unique things that I am. I’m more than this body. I’m smart, curious, kind, funny, and determined. It takes a bit more effort to see those things in this photo, but it’s worth it for those who see me for how I really am.



You are so much more than your body. Your beauty is far deeper than your skin alone. Never cheapen your brand of unique and irreplaceable beauty. #morethanbodies #bodypositivity #selflove #bodyacceptance

It’s been a long week. You’re tired. This coming weekend, amidst running errands, plans with friends and family, and the regular hustle and bustle of life, remember to take some time to reflect on the *non-physical* traits that you’re most proud of. This is the most potent form of #selflove that you can actively participate in.



You can’t pour from an empty bucket. Fill up your bucket first, whatever that looks like.

These are two articles that I’ve seen in the last few days that have made my jaw drop to the floor. Here we have the most closely followed family in America demonstrating inappropriate commentary on weight, glorifying eating disorders, and being extremely hurtful about each others appearances. Once again, the focus is entirely on the outside and, in particular, weight. Reading these articles and knowing that these are the role models that little girls are looking up to and and learning values from and then to see these women behave in such a graceless manner is disheartening.



You are more than your body, and it’s time to take a stand against these types of messaging and #unfollow the people and celebrities who perpetuate them. Remember that little girls all around are looking up to you to learn how to feel about their bodies and interact with the people around them. Let’s all take the #pledge to stop saying negative things about our own bodies and the bodies of those around us. Focus on what matters—the inside. You are valuable, and so are the people around you.



#morethanbodies #selflove #bodyacceptance #bodypositivity

I can’t even begin to tell you how many times I’ve held myself back from asking for what I want in life because I’ve believed that I wasn’t pretty enough, delicate enough, or feminine enough to have it... I like to think of my mindset as being constantly under construction or renovation, and this has been one of my areas of focus lately. Why do we hold ourselves back from going for the things that we really want in life? I’ve said “no more.” Now, when I want something, instead of saying “I’ll fail if I try,” I give it my best effort and it’s changed my life. I’m capable of so much more than I could’ve imagined, and so are you. You are not just your body. You are your heart, and mind, and spirit, and you have so much more potential than you could’ve ever thought possible. Give yourself permission to have the things you want in life.



#morethanbodies #bodyacceptance #selflove

Yes🙌🏼 your body is NOT your art. Your body is how you CREATE your art.



Reminder that you are MORE than your body. #morethanbodies #bodypositivity #bodyacceptance

Today, my #WCW is me. I’ve had an absolutely crazy week. Work has been insanely hectic, and I’ve been giving it my all and then some every single day. I’m not perfect—far from it—but its seasons like these that remind me that I’m capable of DOING so much, of BEING so much, and of ACCOMPLISHING more than I ever thought possible. Those are the qualities and the traits that I’m most proud of, and THAT’S part of where I find my value.... not my physical appearance.



This is your hump day reminder that you are so much more than your body. Find the time to explore the things about you that you’re most proud of. I promise that’s the best #selfcare you’ll ever participate in. #MoreThanBodies #SelfLove

Friday Feeling🧖🏻‍♀️🧖🏼‍♀️🧖🏾‍♀️ remember to participate in #SelfCare this weekend! —it releases endorphins🤗

^^Real life photo representation of all the people who meet the beauty industries beauty standards.



Reminder that the same people setting the standard for “how you should look” are the SAME people selling products to “help you achieve that look!” A society of people that feel whole in themselves aren’t very receptive to these types of marketing and products, so the industry has PURPOSELY set a standard that NO ONE can achieve... and the first step in developing immunity to toxic advertising is learning to recognize it.



Remember, you are more than your body. You are more than your appearance, and these aren’t the places you should be seeking value. #morethanbodies #selflove #bodypositivity #bodyacceptance

My first ever #WCW goes out to a very special Pawnee Goddess—Leslie Knope! For me, Leslie was really the first of her kind as a tv “role model” who I clearly saw demonstrating intelligence, determination, and kindness in every👏🏼 single👏🏼 episode👏🏼 The focus was NEVER on her appearance. It was always on the goals she was working towards, and her strength and charisma in doing so! As women, THESE are the things we need to be celebrating in ourselves and others—the things that make us uniquely who we are! When you do, I PROMISE that the #selfacceptance will come.



I’d be doing a disservice if I didn’t also mention Amy Poehler for being a writer and producer on Parks and Rec and for bringing such an incredible character to life.



#bodypositivity #selflove #morethanbodies

Good morning! Before you do anything else this morning, think of 3 [non-physical] things that you LOVE about yourself—mine are my passion, kindness, and sense of humor!



#MoreThanBodies #bodypositivity #selflove

The #bodypositivity movement didn’t click with me for a long time. I tried to love my body. I desperately wanted to love my body... but I couldn’t. I wouldn’t understand how to accept my body until I learned to place my value in things other than my physical appearance. Now I love my body for all the things it’s able to do, rather than the way that it looks. My body is beautiful because it gives mobility to my REAL beauty—my kind heart, my curious mind, and my determined spirit. Learn to place your value in WHO you are. That will be the driving force behind your #selflove in all its forms.

Goodnight, my #bodypositivity warriors. Remember that you never owe “pretty” to anyone. You have inherent value. #MoreThanBodies

“She was beautiful, but not like those girls in the magazines. She was beautiful, for the way she thought. She was beautiful, for the sparkle in her eyes when she talked about something she loved. She was beautiful, for her ability to make other people smile, even if she was sad. No, she wasn't beautiful for something as temporary as her looks. She was beautiful, deep down to her soul. She is beautiful.” - F. Scott Fitzgerald •🙌🏼• I love how this quote puts into perspective the depth of authentic beauty in comparison to physical beauty. Don’t diminish your own self worth to be something as meaningless as your outer appearance. You are so much more than your body. #MoreThanBodies

Many people have asked me lately whether I am not ashamed to publish my "before-pictures" ... my answer is NO! You see, my injury has thought me something very important. I look at the old pictures of me and I see myself the same as now. The number of kilogramms or the level of muscle tone should not determine whether you like yourself or not. I used to think the same before ... I used to hate myself when I didn't like what I saw in the mirror but then I got injured and the way I looked fell so low on the priorities list that I just didn't think about it anymore. My ability to breathe, sleep and walk pain-free and the way I felt were the really important things then, not the way I looked. And that's really everything that matters in any moment of life ... .
You see, in order to recover, it took for me to learn to respect my body despite the extra kilograms. Whenever I'm saying "respect my body" what I actually mean is "learn to love myself" entirely! So, when I look at my old pictures all I see is a brave woman, who's been through hell and my dear (fat) body which has carried me through the most difficult times of my life! I am proud of that woman and I thank my body everyday that it has given me another chance to breathe, to walk normally and to enjoy life again! That's the real transformation that you can see in this picture, not the weightloss! .
Always strive to become better but also know that you are enough no matter how you look. We are much more than just bodies!
Sending love to you all! ❤

Awesome blog post by @runninggingerly about struggling with being defined by physical appearance in running, rather than ability. Just because you have X body type does not mean you are going to succeed or fail in a sport. There are many more determinants to success besides body type alone! ・・・
What does a runner look like anyway? Oh yeah, a person who RUNS! 🏃🏻‍♀️🏃🏾‍♂️Thanks for your honesty and transparency on this important topic @runninggingerly! #girlsthrive #morethanbodies ・・・

“I’ve always been fairly self-conscious about my body because I don’t look like a runner or I don’t have the runner body type (this has been said to me too many times). The way I get around this is by channeling my inner strength and focusing on the word “STRONG”.”
