Alain de Botton is not just a modern philosopher. He’s a complete realist, sharing the reals with us all. Your relationship with yourself is so important to your relationships with others, and self awareness is the absolute key. “The Course of Love” is a bloody good read, pick it up or I’ll lend you mine 😘

Did you know health experts suggest we drink half our body weight in ounces of water a day? 💦💧

Plus more if we consume caffeinated beverages that dehydrate our bodies such a coffee, tea or soda. Try carrying around a reusable water bottle with you and fill it up when you can. This will give you the opportunity to hydrate throughout the day. Cheers! ✌️#ThursdayTip

I’ve had a lot of conversations lately about body image issues and following @jameelajamilofficial @iweigh #iweigh campaign. Only once have I ever danced without a body stocking or nylons, because I’ve been long since told that that’s what big girls “have to do”. I can no longer sit back an not be the change I want to see in the world, so here you go Instagram. I could have a discussion about this for days and days but the truth is, unless I’m getting paid or it’s required for uniformity in a troupe, I don’t care anymore. I’ll wear what I feel like. I want to tell women that they are fine the way they are, and while we have a long way to go as far as plus size dancers in the entertainment industry, I’m not doing anything positive by hiding myself.

4th Christmas of choosing recovery! In the picture on the left, I was severely anorexic, I was a broken, lifeless, sad shell of a person. “I love myself” has been the quietest, simplest, most difficult, but most powerful revolution. Though my road to recovery began four years ago, I can say that I stand strongest today. Over this last year, I’ve learned that I am more than a number, I’ve learned to love my body in all I do, I’ve learned to nourish it, to tender it’s growth. And I’ve learned finally how to live! Today I can celebrate that I weigh perfectly imperfect, strength, kindness, love, passion, dedication, resiliency, laughter, and SO MUCH MORE that a number could never quantify! I’m so thankful for the journey I’ve been on, and all the love I’ve found for myself along the way 💛 #edrecovery #iweigh #healthynotskinny

When I decided to get my hair extensions it was simply because I wanted fuller hair. It was a logical decision, not an emotional one.⠀

I didn’t get hair extensions thinking it would:⠀

❌Make me happier.⠀
❌Make me more confident.⠀
❌Make me more beautiful.⠀
❌Make people like me more.⠀
❌Make more worthy.⠀
❌Make me feel at peace with myself.⠀

I love my extensions and it’s been fun being able to do new things with my hair, but it doesn’t change who I am and my worth.⠀

It’s important to approach weight loss the same way. I don’t think there is anything wrong with wanting to lose weight. If it’s a change you want to make I will always support a woman making a conscious choice about her future.⠀

But it’s vitally important that you do it totally clear that losing weight doesn’t make you more beautiful, more worthy, or more happy.⠀

Go for your goals without apology, but always remember you are enough, right this very moment.

You can be the most beautiful person in the world and everybody sees light and rainbows when they look at you, but if you yourself don't know it, all of that doesn't even matter. Every second that you spend on doubting your worth, every moment that you use to criticize yourself; is a second of your life wasted, is a moment of your life thrown away. It's not like you have forever, so don't waste any of your seconds, don't throw even one of your moments away.

Damn, y’all. She’s good. This is so so so true. It breaks my heart to think about how deeply I hated myself and how I harmed myself in several ways because of it.

В переводе смысл немного меняется, но тем не менее захотелось поделиться ****
все женщины, чью красоту хвалила,
не замечая смелость или ум, -
у вас прошу прощения.
хоть этот дар, вам данный от рожденья,
ничтожно мал в сравненье с силой духа,
способной сотрясать вершины,
он был превознесен - 
у вас прошу прощенья.
отныне обещаю говорить
о вашей стойкости и вашей силе,
не потому, что некрасивы вы,
а потому, что красота лишь часть вас

Happy Thursday, blossoms! I hope everyone is enjoying the week and is wrapping up but not quite yet! It’s #ThankfulThursday so let’s get thankful!
.
I have recently surrounded myself with people who build me up without ever emphasizing my looks. These women (and one man) have been so supportive of me the last several weeks and have made me so thankful that I’ve been able to foster relationships based on mutual respect and appreciation for the others.
.
It is so rare to find that nowadays. I feel like most friendships and relationships are shallow, based on appearances. Especially after having struggled with body image for so long, you expect everyone to see you for a number on a scale or a measurement.
.
That’s why today I am so thankful for my dear friends who tell me that I’m radiant, who tell me that I’m charismatic, and genuine, and light up a room. And I’m thankful for my amazing group of ladies, who I constantly tell how talented, intelligent, incredible, generous, witty, and warm they are. These friendships make me so proud and I hope that we can foster a little more of that in the world.
.
Happy Thursday, blossoms 🌸💕

Let me tell you about the girl on the left.
She is funny, smart, a business woman, she has 2 incredible kids and an amazing husband. She is a good friend, and brave and kind. She is an Autism Mom and firefighters wife. She is tough, and she loves herself and she tells herself everyday why she is already enough in the mirror. But she isn't healthy and would like to be. She does get tired quickly. Her knees hurt when she goes up and down stairs and she is sick of feeling that way.

She is tough and she loves herself and she tells herself everyday why she is already enough in the mirror. She doesn't tire quickly anymore. Her knees dont hurt going up and down the stairs. She is also really freaking proud of the girl on the left for being such a badass and for fighting for her to be able to feel healthy again.
If you're hoping to find self love on the scale, you wont find it. Love yourself for all you are now, dont withhold that love for when/if/maybe someday you like the number on the scale or size of your jeans. I don't love myself anymore today then I did then. I just feel healthier and very proud.

Dear body:
I spent years hating you.
.
By the time we were 8, people were already saying that you were too big. You weren’t, but we spiraled into over a decade of disordered eating anyway. Before we were 10, men were already whistling at us from cars. We wore a spaghetti-strap top once when we were 9, and the looks we got made sure we never wore one again. Instead, we wore jeans and sweatshirts in the heat of Summer. “I’m always cold,” was our excuse, but that wasn’t the whole story.
.
I never trusted you to do anything meaningful - I didn’t trust you to run, or climb, or jump. We didn’t roller blade or ride our bike like other kids. What if we fell? We spent 10 years practicing martial arts and I still didn’t understand what you were capable of.
.
By the time we were 12, I was beating you up on the regular. I’d make you punch trees until our knuckles were bloody. I used blades on your skin, scratched up your hands and put bruises on your legs, and refused to let wounds heal.
.
I’m sorry.
.
You deserve much better than all that. Not very long ago you helped me climb a mountain, and just a few days ago you let me jump and run and climb like I never have before. You’re better to me than I am to you, and I thank you for it.
.
I want to have a better relationship with you than we’ve had up till now. I want us to try. ♥️

Hey lovely folks. My podcast is out today on @industrymindsuk Apple Podcasts. If you have a spare moment please give it a listen, I'd love to hear your thoughts or answer any questions you may have. Ironically I was too anxious to listen to myself and delayed it for a few weeks but I've just listened and the girls are just fantastic. I'm so grateful to be able to use my voice in an honest, open and positive way. I feel so passionate about keeping communications around mental health open, we need to break all stigmas and protect eachother- in AND out of the arts industry. I hope that my words of wisdom (or not) might brighten your day or inspire you to reach out and ask for help. Let's keep educating ourselves and remember that Instagram sometimes sucks and that's ok too. #industryminds #mumididapodcast #mentalhealth #iweigh #applepodcasts @industrymindsuk

The people I love the most I love because they have the most outrageous, couldn’t-give-a-shit laugh........they unknowningly do this big, wide non-judging thing where you could tell them anything.........they share little quotes and stories they know you’ll like........... they make you feel “got,” ..........they spontaneously pay you compliments and laugh when you get awkward, nothing about the love has anything to do with their body, the curve of their arm, the shape of their belly or the size of their jeans.............................. Our latest podcast looks under the hood of the dieting culture, when you want to lose weight what is that really about? @amandajgrace talks openly about her lifelong pursuit of weight loss and how she finally called time on it all

#iweigh

Has a POWERFUL message - To remind us not to fall into those social traps - measuring / defining ourselves on how much we weigh & what we look like.

However we must encourage one another to celebrate our personalities, our lives, our achievements - to reflect on who we REALLY are, the meaningful good stuff with aesthetics aside. 🖤👊🏻

Dig a bit deeper 🙇‍♀️🙇🏽‍♂️ - what’s the harm? - try it! 💭

Confidence, self awareness & self acceptance is so important.⭐️

Friends & Family - I now challenge you! 👆Do it !

BMI-ish 💩
-
Can we please stop obsessing about BMIs and numbers? Can we?
-
Let’s get this straight:
Having a normal BMI does NOT necessarily mean that you are healthy. It does NOT mean that you will have all your problems fixed. It does not mean that you might not have other problems.
-
Oh but wait. An ‘abnormal’ BMI does NOT mean that you are unhealthy either. You can be in the ‘overweight’ category and ‘look’ leaner that a person in the ‘normal’ category. Muscle weights more than fat - remember that!
-
🔴 There are people with anorexia, bulimia and orthorexia with NORMAL BMI.
🔴 There are people with anorexia, bulimia or orthirexia with ABNORMAL BMI too.
🔴There are people without any eating disorder with both NORMAL and ABNORMAL BMI.
-
Plus, during our lives, we all, yes ALL have times where we weight a little more and times where we weight a little less.
-
It’s just a number. An indicator. And yes, while it can be used as a ‘health’ parameter, used by itself it does not represent how ‘healthy’ you are or how you try to live a healthy lifestyle.
-
Now, I don’t have a healthy BMI and my body is not healthy, but I try to live a healthy lifestyle. I value more feeling GOOD about myself and treating my body well than being fixated or obsessed with a number.
-
What does BMI mean to you? Please let me know what you think in a little comment below! 😘
