Be your own best self…

This was not meant to attack anyone– skinny or fat. My point is this– looking at anyone besides yourself as a mark of being healthy and fit is silly. My best friend is a 6 foot glamazon who is strong and sexy and in amazing shape. But she has the body of an athlete. And no matter how much she diets or exercises, she is never going to be a size 2 waif.  And that’s OK! Her strong, healthy body is gorgeous. Just as my thin, healthy body is gorgeous. Just as your curvy, healthy body is gorgeous… etc. Some upper skinny girls are healthy, some are dangerously unhealthy. And the same works in the reverse with chubby girls. Some are healthy and some are not. You can’t judge an ideal body based on aesthetics alone.

Being beautiful is about being the best version of YOURSELF. That means finding the right weight/size for YOU using a healthy diet and exercise.  The beauty of being humans is that we are all different. No two of us will or ever should be exactly the same (yeah yeah, twins… I get it). So lets stop focusing on each other and start helping each other focus on ourselves.

Life is hard. As humans we all have triumphs and we all have struggles. My struggle is different then yours and it is not my place to judge the events in your life that have shaped and formed you. But my suggestion is this– take those struggles and the hurt and the anger and instead of throwing the same negative poison back into the universe by judging others, why don’t we take our experiences and create a positive and supportive community for each other?

  1. Heck yeah! I call it eating your own oatmeal. Do what’s right for you – and celebrate it! Show the world! It’s damn yummy. But don’t judge how someone else eats theirs.

  2. Not even twins! It may be hard to tell them apart, but identical twins definitely do not always behave in the same way or like the same things.
