quick reminder that you're allowed to be happy. it sounds obvious, but sometimes we just need someone to remind us of it. sometimes we beat ourselves up and we keep telling ourselves that we're not worthy of self-love or happiness or whatever it may be, but we are. your size or shape doesn't determine what you deserve or accomplish in life. your stretch marks, cellulite, rolls, etc., do not mean you're somehow less worthy or less wonderful. you babes deserve so much love and happiness and success, I'm rooting for all of you 💛🕊

BREAKING NEWS: YOU DO NOT HAVE TO LOSE WEIGHT TO BE WORTHY OF WEARING A BIKINI THIS SUMMER.
·
I know that goes against every 'Get Beach Body Ready!' message you're seeing right now. Trust me, I used to believe those messages too. I used to spend every single summer starving and sweating to get the body on the left, telling myself that I was only allowed to be seen in swimwear once I'd hit that goal weight (and even once I did, it still wasn't enough). Not once did I ever hear the message that you don't have to shrink your body to deserve a summer in the sunshine.
·
Which is why I'm telling you now, so that you know the truth: you do not have to lose weight to be worthy of wearing a bikini. ·
This year I didn't set a goal weight to hit before my holiday. And I didn't sit by the pool sucking my stomach in and worrying what everyone else thought about my body either. I just went. I laughed and played and ate and swam and wore every damn bikini I own without changing my body one bit. And guess what? It was so much better than all the self hatred filled holidays that came before.
·
Because the only thing I really needed to lose through all those years wasn't weight. It was the bullshit idea that a bikini body is something that you have to earn, when in reality I had one all along. We all have bikini bodies already, and we all deserve a summer in the sunshine. 💜💙💚🌈🌞

But this is ME. Thank you so much @gofitjo for sharing this amazing campaign with me. The road to self-love has been long, a bit like a rollercoaster and very inconsistent, but I am so happy to be getting to a place of peace with myself and my body.

#ilovemybodybecause it is the home where my spirit lives.

#ilovemybodybecause it is so resilient and despite every sunburn I get, poor food choice I make and negative thought I think, it still keeps going strong.
.
#ilovemybodybecause it patiently waited to be loved and stayed kind to me even when my mind was not.
.
#ilovemybodybecause it is flawed and beautiful and never gives up on me.

I don’t say thank you to my body enough, and starting today I vow to recognize and appreciate all of the amazing things it does everyday. So for day 1, I am declaring myself as my own #WCW.

Why do you love your body?

5. This is a bit of a weird one, but when I was a baby my great grandmother used to hold me all of the time and just stare at me. My mom and grandmother could never figure out why. One day my grandmother finds a photo of her older sister who died when she was younger because her nightgown caught on fire and gasped. She called me into the room and when I saw the photo I asked when that photo of me was taken. I look exactly like my great aunt who died. My great grandmother predicted great things for me and when she passed I was the only one out of all of my family that she left anything to. If I ever get my hands on the photo I will do a side by side. I guess that's why people tell me I have an old soul.

Food is nourishment, and food can be fun and can be an experience. If you want chocolate, eat it. If you want an extra serving, eat it. You don't need to workout extra hard the next day or beat yourself up for it. #projecttakecare #selflove

Yes that is young Jasmine.
7. I didn't start wearing makeup until I was about 19. I used to call it face paint, but that was mostly due to me being insecure and not knowing how to apply it. When I first started trying to wear it and tried to put on eyeliner for the first time I poked my eye out. Like it legit turned red and I couldn't see for a moment and everything. The messed up part is that my mom predicted it like 5 seconds before and warned me not to do it. I don't know why she is always right.
8. I was a hell raiser when I was younger (elementary school) and one time my cousin asked me to get him a glass orange juice instead of getting it himself. I got it for him, but not before I put a dash of hot sauce in it. He kept saying it tasted weird but I denied ever doing anything to it. I didn't admit what I did until much later. To this day he still talks about it. 🙈 I now know what I did was wrong. 😶😬 #MyBodyMyRules #TBT #throwbackthursday
