Six months, five states, eight new European friends, one broken suitcase, and a whole new appreciation for the beauty of my home country 💥💥 australiayoubeaut 💗🇦🇺 (btw I’m free for plans now y’all wooo lmao) https://scontent-amt2-1.cdninstagram.com/vp/0a1710b0ad1271ef6e015c766f383086/5B6A09CA/t51.2885-15/e35/30603737_117358942459307_4312593704343830528_n.jpg2018-04-26

121334283412133428342018-04-25I met a women the other day. She was wearing one of our tunics without pants or leggings underneath. She simply wore it with bandelettes and bare legs. Most of the women I meet tell me they can't show their knees or legs because they do not feel comfortable with their thick legs. Most of them do not want to show their arms simply because they are "flappy" and not firm anymore. But this woman did not care. I asked her what she thinks about our society not approving of the thicker bodies and she simply said "Oh, honey. I do not care what society thinks. I think I look good. And gosh, am I supposed to walk arround sweaty simply because I don't look like a size 0 model? No thanks! We are all beautiful. Just a little bit thicker. Makes winter easier!", she chuckled. That inspired me. No one should have to feel ashamed of their body. NO ONE! You are beautiful in your own skin. Shine bright!

Even whilst being location independent for the last 12 months, I carried a few special items - stones, notes from loved ones, a piece of jewellery..,
What are your ‘touchstones’ or special talismans? A item maybe that you don’t go anywhere without? https://scontent-amt2-1.cdninstagram.com/vp/2d64f8326b2cebc2aee84fd91ff6d80d/5B697F63/t51.2885-15/e35/30830088_2048041232131288_3480263569621123072_n.jpg2018-04-25

109107880510910788052018-04-25Society shapes us in so many ways , even more that we even realize , from our reactions, to the way we dress, we talk, we express , to one that I find so horrible that is our personal development through to other’s perception of our bodies as a reflection of self worth.
It’s so horrible and barely impossible to try to fit in the society standards of beauty, I could say that until now as an adult through yoga is the first time I actually feel comfortable with my body image , I went from feeling so chubby, when I was actually not, but I wanted to fit so bad in that small box that I felt so uncomfortable in my own skin to the point I hated mirrors, and of course as too many girls sadly I went to the so dangerous path of doing every stupid imaginable thing to be skinny, and when I got finally skinny , then I got all these comments about you look too skinny, you look sick , you are all bones, what happen to you?? At both sides it can get so hard inside your mind, and it can really fucks you up big time. Self image is such an important part of happiness, there is no skinny or fat, there is healthy, there is I am doing this for myself , not because I need you to like me, but I want to like what I see in the mirror. Beauty comes in all forms, and sizes, if you try to fit in that stupid small box , you’re loosing the one and more important thing that is your self worth. The day you decide you are good enough for you , is the day you will set yourself free. Do whatever you need to be happy for yourself, not for anybody else 🕊🕊. effyourbeautystandardshonormybodydaretobedifferentsizehappyiamallwomanallbodiesaregoodbodiesnowrongwaytobeawomanlovemyshapeloveselfloveconfidencehapinesslifemotivationselfrespectselfesteemloveyourselffucklabelsempowerementinstaloveinstasuccessinstainspirationvalueselfworthloveyourselfhealthymindhealthylifestylehttps://scontent-amt2-1.cdninstagram.com/vp/ff4975c95f334eca6e16f10e3604febc/5B9837D1/t51.2885-15/e35/31054633_2031589150395235_1512714449750851584_n.jpg2018-04-25

146126612314612661232018-04-25when all we see around us. is one shape of feminity, then of course, when we see a new female shape, one with more bumps, more lumps, more flesh, more blemishes, more wrinkles, we are going to object to it.
even if that version is facing us in the mirror.
if we never see cellulite or stretch marks on the covers of magazines, if we never see scars that cut across midriffs, or wrinkles on foreheads, then what are we meant to think?
society has tried to tell us that there is only one way a female body should be.
well i say no.
im sick of being subtly and quietly told that my body isn’t good enough.
as if something that enables me to move and stand and laugh and love could ever be anything other than magical.
i won’t conform anymore.
this is for all the women who have been told they’re too fat.
or too thin.
or that they have thick thighs.
or that they’re looking a bit tired.
this is for the little girls who idolise a polished and overly perfected version of human, looking down at their beautiful legs thinking that they fall short of ‘good enough’
staring into phone screens and into magazines,
i wish i could show them something different.
but actually we can.
we can move mountains if we choose to.
so let’s make a start.
