I am my Own Prince Charming

I am my Own Prince Charming

Picture this- that Disney princess you really love, she’s the one who kisses her prince and wakes him up from a deep sleep to rescue him from the evil villain. Can you picture it? Probably not because women are portrayed as these fragile beings who need to be rescued or saved by a man. Granted, these princess movies were filmed long ago and the times have changed but, when little girls watch these movies they believe that a guy is what they need to be “saved” or that they need to rely on a man for a stable living and they carry this idea around with them for the rest of their lives.

The Comparison Game

The Comparison Game

Recently I have found myself in a bit of the comparison game. Normally, I am super confident in myself and independent. I mind my own business and don’t think about what other people are doing or how fast they’re coming along compared to me. Comparing to other people does me no good. Everyone is on their own path and journey and it differs from person to person. However, it is so easy to compare to someone else and how more successful they are being even though you may be doing the same thing. I’ve been at this whole blogging thing for a year now and am not at as much growth as I want to be but, you know what? It’s okay. I am on my own journey, at my own pace. As long as I’m focusing on myself and my growth, good things will happen and come to me.

Why I Don’t Care if you Think I’m Fat

No, I’ve never been called fat but I 100% know people have thought it. Maybe not even fat but just overweight. But listen up, I DO NOT CARE. I’m to the point in my life where, excuse if I’m being frank but, don’t give a fuck. I have a job that I love. I’m getting a good education. I have friends that I love. Family that I love and I take good care of myself. I work out and eat right. I take time for self-care. I’m doing all the right things. Weight is just a number. As long as I’m eating healthy and moving my body, I’m doing just what I need to be doing. So, go ahead, call me fat. In fact, I encourage it. I take that as a compliment.

What I’ve Been Doing for my Own Sanity

What I’ve Been Doing for my Own Sanity

These past couple of months I’ve been really focusing on my health- physical and mental and restricting myself of certain things. Before, I had just been going with the flow and not caring about how much time I spent on my phone or social media, etc. Now however, I feel so refreshed, less anxious and care-free. Here’s what I’ve been doing for my own sanity.

Body Shaming Spoken Word Poem

Body Shaming Spoken Word Poem

I recently had to write a spoken word poem for my creative writing class about a topic that I am really passionate about and I chose to write about body shaming. My class enjoyed it and gave such good feedback that I decided to share it with my followers, whom I think will relate to it even more and appreciate it. So, here goes nothing…
