Define Love Project 2017 || Day 15: Body Positivity

I think my most favorite trend that has been going around the social media world is body positivity.

Just the general idea that if you are alive you are beautiful head to toe! You a an amazing & unique creation, and you don’t need anyone to tell you so.

I’ve always had insecurities about my body, as everyone does. Being Filipino, I always have Tita’s commenting on my body when I gain weight. They don’t mean to be hurtful, but not only does it bring my self esteem down, its freaking annoying. I think the worst thing was when I came back from the Philippines and one of my friends mom told me, “Oh! What happened to your sexy body?!”

Like, c’mon tita, it’s still here.

I used to hate a lot of things about my body. Stretch marks, my smile, my hands, ect. Then I realized that this is me! Its my smile & hands & marks that make me… me! Why spend time bringing myself down? I can work out & take care of my body of course, but I don’t need to be upset about things I can’t change about my body.

Gotta love the body I got.

Peace & Love,
