Love yourself

I don’t usually do this, but a friend inspired me to write this post. This is for her and for anyone else that needs it.

If we only get one life shouldn’t that life be spent being as happy and healthy as we can? This month marks the second month in my journey of healing. For the past 5 years of my life I have been on and off struggling with purging. Life is too short to spend it worrying about inches or curves. So for anyone else that struggles or struggled with the same or similar things… 

Love yourself because you are smart

Love yourself because you are kind.

Love yourself because you are compassionate

Love yourself because you are funny.

Love yourself because you are spontaneous

Love yourself because you are powerful

Love yourself because you are wise

Love yourself because you care

Love yourself because you are the strongest person I know

Love yourself because you make me a better person.

Love yourself because everyday you help me see why I should love myself.

Love yourself because you are the best friend you will ever have

Love yourself because you have the power to shine. 

i want to apologize to all the women i have called beautiful
before i’ve called them intelligent or brave
i am sorry i made it sound as though
something as simple as what you’re born with
is all you have to be proud of
when you have broken mountains with your wit
from now on i will say things like
you are resilient, or you are extraordinary
not because i don’t think you’re beautiful
but because i need you to know
you are more than that

Help me embark on an educational opportunity of a lifetime

Hello friends,

As I am getting ready to study abroad I realize that this is not a journey I can take alone; emotionally, spiritually, or financially. I am not one to ask for help, but I am asking for help now. Every amount makes a difference, I would greatly appreciate your help. f you wouldn’t mind taking a couple minutes to visit my fundraiser I would be very thankful. 

Much love,
J
