My #motivationmonday •
I have come a LONG way this year. I found myself. I learned to love my body and to stop abusing it. I embraced my insecurities and found confidence. I found a support system/a dream team to help turn a dream of mine into a reality, something I’ve wanted to do in my twenties, but always found an excuse or let fear get the best of me. I put in weeks and months of hard work, and am so damn proud of the woman I became, the woman I am ending my twenties as and starting my thirties as. I’m healthier, stronger, and more confident. For my first show as a Figure Competitor, I’m damn proud of my outcome. 🎉⭐️👏🏼 #ocbmidwest#ocbmidweststates2019#figurecompetitor#ocb#womenwholift#confidence#shine#dontdullyoursparkle#glowup#elevendaysout#myyearofiron
“I don't understand why the word 'ugly' exists. There's nothing good about it. Especially during puberty, this word has a great impact. It hurt me a lot too. I hope more diversity in appearance will be accepted in society and the current beauty standards are reconstructed. Changing society is not easy, and it requires changes in each person's mind. There should be a big movement. I also want to start telling stories more.”
How do you prioritize your biz? 💰 I focus on things that increase sales. Because without sales 💸💸💸 your business will fail 🚫 If more business owners focused on this FIRST, instead of the superficial things that don’t immediately drive revenue, we would have fewer business failures.

Fake it until you make it! Henry Ford once said “If you believe you can or you believe you can’t, you’re right” -
You have to believe in yourself and believe you deserve it, that you believe you are worth it deep down. If you have this belief in yourself then it will give you the ability to stay true to yourself and to keep you on your path towards achieving your goals and dreams (whatever they may be). Others believe in you, your friends, family and colleagues believe in you and if you don’t believe in yourself just yet, Pretend! Pretend that you do and eventually you will realise that you won’t need to fake it so often or as much because you have improved your mindset and that inner belief. You have to work at it but when you believe in something you will take care of it and protect it. -BELIEVE IN YOURSELF! #believe#believeinyourself#fakeittillyoumakeit#confidence#growth#workharddreambig#betrue#motivation#inspiration#onlinepersonaltraining#onlinebootcamp#health#fitness#lifestyle#healthy#happy#fit
Let’s talk about body positivity and sexuality.. bare with me, there’s going to be a lot of air quotes in this one.
I have always been very self conscious about my body - for as long as I can remember. Women (and men, non-binary or just everyone!) are told at a very young age that if they don’t fit in some kind of “mold”, that they are “messed up” or “unattractive”.
Even if not directly spoken to, images in the media, film, commercials, magazines...are forced down our throats all our lives and dictate “right vs. wrong”.
Being plus size and part of the lgbtqia+ community, I never saw myself represented in any form of “beauty”.
Recently, I’ve been struggling more than usual with my overall appearance and it’s connection to sex and beauty.
Modeling forces me to step back and put myself in uncomfortable situations such as looking at myself in print.
I acknowledge the fact I am still growing as a person. I have flaws, and nitpick more than I’d like to admit.
But, sometimes, not often, I come across a photo where I would despise at first glance and eventually realize that this is part of the problem. This is why I never felt represented.
I need to be an example and show those unedited, “unflattering” angles, so someone else who is self conscious about their arms or back or whatever it may be can feel empowered.
No matter your size, shape, color, sexual orientation, personal preferences, we’re literally all in this thing called life together. Don’t waste it hating yourself. Don’t waste it hating your body. Go out there and make someone feel beautiful and sexy, including yourself. 💗
