WHY THE 𝕤𝕖𝕝𝕗𝕚𝕖 YOU POST MATTERS
Updated: Oct 18, 2021
It matters because of what you’re communicating to yourself.
It matters because you have options. Raw, imperfect, random, messy, or make it look what you think is perfect and then feel accountable for looking that way in person forever.
You can edit and crop it and then feel timid and like a fraud when you go out with someone. The truth is - your naked truth is what’s going to help you find/attract the people in your life who adore you. Not future-perfect-super-model-you that you’ve been aiming to be since you were 6. You as you are.
Where ever you are in your journey.
Sure be healthy, take care of yourself. But if you’re not doing that, you still deserve love. You still deserve to wear whatever the hell makes you feel like a goddamn rockstar.
This perfectionist garbage we were brought up with has created SO MUCH self-loathing, disconnection, judgment, and anguish. But we still cling to it, we still advertise with it, we still pretend we know what perfection even is so we can monopolize on it and sell it.
I’m exhausted of this. Are you?
When I see someone bold and naked in person or on the internet, or in a belly shirt, or sexy dress, lingerie, I don’t care what they look like, what I care about is the fact that they wanted to wear/do what made them feel sexy + good and they did it.
I LIKE what that communicates to the world, selfishly what it communicates to me, to kids.
FEEL sexy, feel gorgeous, not just when you’re at your ideal fitness, but no matter what, no matter when.
Picture on the left is me at my healthiest and happiest. I can eat whatever I want.
Picture on the right- was what I thought I had to look like (from ages 6- 26) to find love, be successful, be healthy.
I have nothing but love for the body on the right. I don't mean to villainize it or say any one body type is better than the other. If your body naturally looks like that- it's beautiful. It was just unhealthy for me to aim for a body type that was very unnatural to my body.
This is all connected. My work on money, my work on bodies, my work on love, my work on pleasure. It’s all about your freedom to discuss. I have 1-1 spots open.
