Really tryna get better @ date night🍷did i do ok? also, just an excuse to decorate my place. which really made me happy, and decorating was a fun mindful distraction. because sometimes my brain/over-sensitive soul just needs a break 🎁🎄ʟᴏʟ ya know?
*tis the season for cheesin :) #winschulers
I could totally smooth some lines, maybe cover my cute marks and pimples. but why would i want to hide things that makes me 𝙢𝙚?
the next time you see a photo of yourself, soak that sh-t in 😍 because wow.. that’s 𝘆𝗼𝘂. and every single thing in that photo wants to be embraced. longs to be loved. and tbh, you’re the only one who can really do that.
and that’s pretty cool :)
Made up or not, love what you got🥀
i haven’t done this in such a long time.. i think i needed it. the idea of getting all made up is something i’m so funky about.
in high school, i was practically 2 hours late every. single. day. i obsessed over my hair & makeup. i didn’t even need it to be 𝘱𝘦𝘳𝘧𝘦𝘤𝘵. i see now that i just never felt 𝗴𝗼𝗼𝗱 𝗲𝗻𝗼𝘂𝗴𝗵.
i think once i started actually embracing my bare face & my body in every state, i hated that old version of me: the girl who felt so unworthy and unloved. it really had nothing to do with the d**n makeup💄
the point of healing that you need a moment with your old self ♡ forgive and give love to the younger parts of you that didn’t know how. maybe now, getting fancy will feel like more of a fun option instead of an obligation.
and i’m really looking forward to that :)
have you ever felt like this ?
If only you knew that one day, you’d feel this good. 𝘫𝘶𝘴𝘵 𝘮𝘢𝘺𝘣𝘦 you could’ve treated yourself 𝐛𝐞𝐭𝐭𝐞𝐫.
struggling with self worth and eating disorders can become so overwhelming that i eventually just felt so lost, broken and gave up hope.
but guess what - this is not your ending.

✨& i found hope again.

we all go through so much on a daily basis, so why do we hide it? and yes • it’s tough.
but you are tougher🥀
i’ve been feelin more and tearin more recently, and this shows me how much i need to sometimes. the release is freeing✨and the one thing that stops us is the stigma & idea that feeling or reacting is a sign of struggle or weakness.
but there is strength in 𝘢𝘤𝘵𝘶𝘢𝘭𝘭𝘺 feeling.
there is courage in 𝘨𝘦𝘯𝘶𝘪𝘯𝘦 expression.
and there is so much growth🌱to be had when you really let yourself shamelessly be a human being who -guess what- is going through something just like everyone else.
so, maybe feels, fears and tears are all part of actually ‘fitting in’ 💭

The morning after✨a time when hiding feels tempting, but, this is a moment worth savoring instead. whether it was easy or not, you ate everything you wanted or shied away..
you still did it. and you made it.
sometimes, i don’t know what to say or how to say it because i struggle so much less than my entire lifetime of battling food and this body. but maybe, that’s something important to share, too 💬 i know that the cycles of struggles feel endless, and you might think that this the only kind of life you’re going to live. but it’s not.
recovery is something you can have. your simple awareness & effort means that recovery’s something you’re already doing.
💕let that sink in, okay?
Hey you. thxgiving‘s a day away and recovery‘s here to stay ☺️ how are you feelin?
the moments leading up to holidays can ruff, but here’s what we can do:
✨eat yummy things and full meals til then and don’t feel like you have to starve or ‘save up calories’
💡remember that you don’t have to exercise to earn your yums or make up for it after. ever
🌬talk to someone, even aloud to yourself and process these feels. they’re real and releasing truly often feels like freeing
💭let yourself feel. and there is no need feel guilty, ‘wrong’ or ‘messed up’ for having anxieties. you’re human !
just show up for yourself.
all ya gotta do is check in.
because you need you ♡
