My Year To Thrive

"My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style." ~Maya Angelou

Shame-Loss Ads | The Nearsighted Owl

I am going to take weight loss ads and redraw them to be body positive. Instead of encouraging you to drop pounds, they will celebrate dropping our body shame and fat hate! It was satisfying to take a message I have been assaulted with since the holidays and transform it into something I am in love with.

Why fat acceptance

Love your body

Fuck diets. Lose your shame.

What you will achieve when you lose self-doubt, shame, disordered eating, & insecurities? Special you.

You have to love yourself just the way you are right now.  Regardless of whether you want to lose weight, gain weight, get a boob job, get a tattoo, however you might want to change your body, know that what you have right now is still a good body & deserves to be loved & cared for.  To quote Ragen Chastain, “No one ever hated themselves healthy.”  This goes for those of us with mental illness & other disabilities, too.  Being outside the norm does not mean you are any less deserving of love & respect, from yourself & others.
