A helpful starting guide to body positivity.

(via )

Before I go to sleep, I want to say:

practice-self-love:

Thank you legs, for carrying me around all day. I know that you rub together, so much that sometimes you rub holes in my jeans, but you are sturdy and you help me to walk, so thank you. You must be so strong to hold up the upper half of my body, and I appreciate you.

Thank you ankles, for helping my feet to propel me through this world. I know that you hurt sometimes, especially when I wear improper shoes or bend you the wrong way. I promise to try and take better care of you, because I am so thankful for what you do for me every day. 

Thank you tummy, for being soft. You make a great pillow for my boyfriend’s head. I know that sometimes I seem ungrateful because I want you to be firmer and flatter. But really, I am grateful for what you are and what you do for me. I am learning to love you more - it’s going to take time. I promise to put better foods in you and do exercises to make you stronger. 

Thank you spine, for holding my body up. I know that you are twisted and constantly in pain. The doctors call it scoliosis. I am sorry that you have to go through that. Thank you for enduring the pain and carrying me throughout the day. I know that when I do chores and stand for too long, you can’t take the pain. I promise to rest you more often and stretch. I promise to make an appointment with a doctor soon, so we can work on improving your health. Thank you for always working hard to keep me upright, even when it’s so difficult. 

Thank you neck, for keeping my head up. I know you are tired and sore and you have knots, but I love you so much. Thank you for not giving up on me, even when I put you through hours of computer work, and then hours of reading! 

Thank you eyes, for allowing me to see. I know that my vision is not so great. Thank you for putting up with my contacts and for giving me vision, however limited. I am endlessly grateful that I can see in this world. Sight is something that we take for granted, and I don’t want to do that to you, because you are too special to me. 

Thank you, body, for being you. You are not perfect by society’s standards, but you are perfectly me. There is no other version of me. I may gain weight, or lose weight, get stronger, or weaker, but I will always be me. Thank you. 

Goodnight, world.

Body Positive / Self Love / Recovery / Health Blogs

practice-self-love:

I used to have a “body positive blogs” list that somehow got lost/deleted. Since then, quite a few people have asked me to recommend blogs that are similar to my own that they can follow. 

I follow almost 800 blogs, so I was really daunted at the task of going through them, one by one, and recommending the ones that I thought were dedicated to body positivity/self love/recovery/health/etc.

Since I am sick, I thought it was the perfect time to tackle this project! 

To create this list, I searched through the list of all of the blogs that I am following and clicked on the URLs that sounded body positive. Then, I looked at the first page of their blog before deciding whether to put them on my list or not. Since there are so many, I did not click through multiple pages of their blog before adding them to this list. If you think I’m recommending someone by mistake, let me know. And, by all means, let me know which blogs I should add to the list, since I’m sure I missed some!! 

WARNING: Many of these (especially those under the Body Positivity heading) are NSFW.

These are in no particular order - click them all and see which ones you like!

Last night I broke up with someone.

And after talking for a really long time, she looked me in the eyes and said:

"I wish I knew you when you loved yourself."

I have no idea where that came from, but of course it made me cry.

She had no idea that I have been on this journey to self love for a few years now.

That I actively try and love myself every day.

And that self love is a journey - one that I haven’t completed yet. 

I continue to be motivated to find a place of constant (or near-constant) self love in my life.

I just wanted to tell you all that even when it seems hard, and even when you feel like self love is a difficult goal to attain - you can do it.

Just like me, you just have to keep striving for it. 

<3

You know what’s awesome? Looking in the mirror and liking what you see.

practice-self-love:

You deserve that too :) 

Truth:

Even when striving towards body positivity and self love, it’s natural and normal to feel insecure about certain parts of your body.

A secret about me (or not so secret):

I am really insecure about my back. 

I have scoliosis, and I fear that it affects my ability to be perceived as sexy or attractive. 

My body is beautiful.

reumonfiyah:

My body is beautiful no matter

  • what shape it is
  • how big it is
  • how many stretch marks I have
  • what the number on the scale says
  • what other people say

My body is beautiful to me.

And nothing will change that.
