My favourite green dress ๐Ÿ€โ˜˜๏ธ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒฑ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿ’š

Green has always been one of my favourite colors. There is something special about green, it always soothes me somehow. Perhaps I relate the color to the soothing colors of nature. ๐Ÿ™

If you walked naked infront of me, I would never ever assault you and hurt you and say that you asked for it with your naked body ๐Ÿ™

It is alright for you to love your body, to be proud of the body shape you have and to enjoy your body. You were born in this specific body, it is a gift of life and it should be loved, honored, respected and appreciated, by yourself.

It is never ok to hurt someone, and especially not because of the way they look, their body shape or the clothes they choose to wear. You should respect everyone no matter what they look like or how they choose to dress.

If you walked naked infront of me, I would never ever assault you and hurt you and say that you asked for it with your naked body. However, I would not advice you to walk around naked in public but that is not the point here ๐Ÿ˜‚, the point is that it doesn’t matter what you wear or what you don’t wear: your body is not a statement of what others can or can’t do to you, it is your temple that you honor by taking care of in all ways possible, including wearing what you find beautiful.

Everything that happens to you in your life is a reflection of how you feel about yourself ๐ŸŒน

“I think the most important thing in life is self-love, because if you don’t have self-love, and respect for everything about your own body, your own soul, your own capsule, then how can you have an authentic relationship with anyone else?

Shailene Woodley

Everything begins with how you feel about yourself. ๐ŸŒนLove is an inside job and it starts with you. How you feel about yourself is reflected in everything that happens to you, in every one you meet and how every one treats you as well.

Loving yourself is not selfish, it is the opposite of that. If you want to help others and be of most value – start by finding unconditional love for yourself. ๐Ÿ™

My body, my temple ๐Ÿ™๐ŸŒน

You have to stand up and say, ‘There’s nothing wrong with me or my shape or who I am; you’re the one with the problem!’

Jennifer Lopez

You have a right to be as you are, to look as you look and to feel as you feel. Choose to be who you want to be and let your colors shine bright.

Enjoying some reliefgiving “me-time” ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒบ๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒผ๐Ÿ’ฎ๐ŸŒป

I feel so relieved that this Friday is slowly turning into night. I always feel better when darkness comes at night. ๐Ÿ™ My babies are sleeping peacefully and I get a few hours of “me-time” while my boyfriend is out with some friends.

I am listening to my favourite music and enjoying another hamburger ๐Ÿ” ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘Œ.

  • What do you love to do when you get some valuable “me-time”?

Beautiful eyes, lips and a beautiful poise ๐ŸŒผ๐Ÿ’ฎ๐ŸŒธ๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒบ

For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.”

Audrey Hepburn

Loving my obliques ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ‘Œ

Today I worked out at home, I focused on all aspects of my body. I especially love seeing my obliques, there is something every sensual about those lines. I took this picture today while I was working out with two dumbells over my head. I noticed how nice those obliques looked in the mirror so I just had to take a picture of them ๐Ÿ˜.

I think our bodies are amazing! I have carried 2 babies inside of me and yet my figure snapped back to this shortly after giving birth. That is amazing!

I feel so much appreciation for the flexibility and agility of my body. For its stamina, health and potential. I will continue to honor, love and respect my body for as long as I shall live. ๐Ÿ™

  • What do you like about your body?

From raging insecurities to strong empowerment ๐ŸŒผ

“(…) Can you hear the whispers all across the room?
You feel her eyes all over you like cheap perfume
You’re beautiful, but misunderstood
So why you tryna be just like the neighborhood?
I can see it, I know what you’re feelin’
So let me tell you ’bout my little secret
I’m a little crazy underneath this
Underneath this
Do you ever feel like a misfit?
Everything inside you is dark and twisted
Oh, but it’s okay to be different
‘Cause baby, so am I (So am I, so am I, so am I)
Do you ever feel like an outcast?
You don’t have to fit into the format
Oh, but it’s okay to be different
‘Cause baby, so am I (So am I, so am I, so am I-I-I-I-I) (…) “

Ava Max,” So am I”

No matter what you look like, what body type you have or what clothes you have – people will look at you and some will judge you. There will always be those who love the way you look and those who completely disapprove of everything that you are. Let them think as they choose to.

The beautiful part about life is when you finally give up trying to please everyone else, when you finally shake loose from caring about their disapproval or approval. There is so much freedom and empowerment to be felt when you start giving yourself the love and approval you previously tried to get from other people and external things.

It is a process. It takes time. I began working on this 12 years ago, when I was 24. I have come such a long way, I went from having no self esteem what so ever, from feeling like a helpless victim and feeling I had to please everyone around me in order to deserve to be liked a little – I went from all that to really liking myself, inside and outside no matter what other people think of me. I began to appreciate life, to appreciate all experiences – especially the bad ones because they helped inspire me to now become stronger.

I would not even be the happy, confident and empowered woman I am today without every single bad thing that ever happened to me. So I am grateful, for all of it. My entire way of viewing life is 100% different from how I viewed life 12 years ago. If I can change all these limiting insecurities, anyone can.

And no, the external things didn’t change before I felt better. I still look exactly the same way as I did before, I have the same job, the same relationship, I have still gone through all those awful things in my life that left me on the brink of despair – and I have since then gone through even more negative experiences in all aspects of my life. And yet here I am, happier and stronger than ever. Loving life, loving my body and feeling appreciation for every step along my way. Feeling appreciation for every rascal that ever hurt me because I am who I am today because of it all. It is an endless journey that I intend to enjoy. ๐Ÿ™

๐ŸŒผ๐ŸŒผ๐ŸŒผYes, I like my body ๐Ÿ™๐ŸŒผ๐ŸŒผ๐ŸŒผ

Yes, I like my body. I am proud that my body has carried and given birth to my two little babies. I am proud that it kept being there for me even though I hated it for several decades. I am proud that it could go through so much pain and so much suffering and still be resilient, healthy, fit, toned and strong. ๐Ÿ™

Yes, I like my body and I will keep enjoying being in my body for as long as I shall live. No matter what happens, my light cannot be dimmed anymore. This is who I am, and I like it. ๐Ÿ™

Tomorrow will be celebrated in red ๐ŸŒน

Tomorrow is the last day of school for my students. I always wear something bright and colorful like a red, green or blue dress on these days. Even if this school year would be best summarized in black I choose to end it with a bright, strong and happy colour. My favourite color. ๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒน
