Missing the beautiful views of the Welsh country side! Side note: I generally hate how I look in pictures, I struggle so much to post anything that isn't a photo that I have personally taken and checked over. Just a gentle reminder that you are not here to be attractive, your photos can be for reminiscing rather than advertising yourself and not every picture of you needs to be a 'thirst trap' 😅. You are more than your beauty and MUCH more than anyone else's perception of it. 💛 #selflove #bopo #bodypositivity #welshcountryside #hottub #holidaysnaps #middaydrinks

I went for a long time not posting any pictures of myself. I didn’t allow there to be many pictures of me. I didn’t like how I looked and I didn’t like looking at myself. I had to talk myself into taking a picture with Josh on his first day of kindergarten. There’s a peak into my messed up brain. 😳 The thing I didn’t like most of all? I didn’t like feeling the cognitive dissonance I was experiencing by not liking myself. I so badly wanted to be someone that loved myself and my body regardless of size. I felt that way about others - I saw other women feel that way about themselves - but I couldn’t get my brain to catch up with all the self love my heart wanted so badly. I was ashamed of myself AND I was ashamed that I was ashamed of myself. Like - what do you do with that? I’ve had to learn to give myself a break and remember that 38 years in this culture has conditioned me to think this way. It has conditioned me to label bodies and foods as good and bad. Worthy and not worthy of a photo. I had to dig deep in my thoughts about myself and others. I’m still working on all of it. I still don’t love to look at pictures of myself. I always think “one day I will love my body and I’ll post then.” I’m trying to document this journey and love myself where I’m at and where I’m headed. I’m trying to find the balance of wanting to be in a smaller body and loving myself no matter what. It’s real hard - but I’m getting there.
