A man just shamed me, a woman traveling alone, for taking a picture of myself with a selfie stick. So I’m posting it immediately before I let myself get any more bothered by whatever the fuck some random-ass Brad thinks. • Necklace by @eliciafrances, whose jewelry starts conversations with people from all over the world. #therealmvp (link in bio)
I was going to post a 2fall 2function pic (swipe to see), but I can’t with my stupid dog’s face today, it’s too good 😇😍
This little bug woke me up at 4am today. I was pretty frustrated at first, but it’s been 12 hours and she’s still feeling crummy, so she’s tucked up in bed with me and a toy crab named Herman. I may be tired right now, but I can’t stay mad at this face.
“I feel fat today.” Every day this week, I’ve been sending outfit pics to my girlfriend. But today, I nearly just sent her that sentence instead. Why? It’s certainly not because I ~feel fat~. I feel fat every day. It’s a good thing that I try to be proud of and own... most of the time. • But what does “feeling fat” actually mean? To me, it means: “I’m exhausted. I’m tired. I’m traveling alone. I’m over-peopled. I’ve been fighting imposter syndrome all week. My defenses are low.” It’s these low defenses that allow my negative feelings creep in, and inevitably take over. • So while I’m down, let me say this: on instagram, I post my cutest, most-turned-up self. And this takes WORK. Near-constant affirmations, angles, and the tucking in of fat here, fat there. I’ve been in recovery since 2007, and I still try to post shots where I don’t “feel fat”. Fuck that. Here’s me halfway through getting dressed today. My makeup is on, but there’s no filters, no sucking in, and no scrutinized shot selection. Just me. • 💜 A good person. 💙A smart employee who works hard. 💚 A writer and manager who is proficient and deserves their job. 💛 A good dresser. 🧡 And a woman with a body that is beautiful, natural, and worthy of taking up space.
