Small Acts of Self-Care as an Intentional Practice — Everyday Feminism

When I went to look for an image to accompany this share, I thought this image was pretty perfect.  I almost didn’t bother today, but I convinced myself to do it anyway. (yay me!)  So here is something short & sweet.

 …without perspective, everything is personal, and this makes it easy to beat up an already bruised existence.

So maybe it’s time to change the way you look at yourself.

Think about it. How much more can you see from a second or third floor window than you can from the first floor? It’s the same with who we are.

If we never look at ourselves through a different frame, we’ll always appear the same.

If we stare at ourselves in front of the mirror or lie in our beds all of the time thinking the same self-deprecating thoughts, we’ll never set ourselves up for a new kind of series where we catalogue all of the ordinary that makes us extraordinary.

  1. Great post!!! I wish every woman would read your post and see the image to remind them how strong they are and how amazing it is to be a woman!

    (I know this most likely sounds weird coming from a guy but I fully support feminism and the struggle of women to break free from the shackles of patriarchal tyranny. I hope I live to see the day when women are truly free, when the media and society stops objectifying women, when gender bias ends. I hope I live to see the day when both the media/society cheers and supports all women without the constraints of objectification. It enrages me to see young girls indoctrinated at a young age, it angers me that there are still men out there who hate women, who hate femmism. I’m ashamed of what my gender has done!!)

    If only we didn’t life in a patriarchal society maybe life would be better, things are slowly improving but it’s not enough, women need to realize their strength, their independence and their freedom!!

    I’m going to share your post on my Facebook and Twitter as I believe more people need to see this.

    Again, great post!!!


    Ps. Thanks for stopping by my blog and taking time out of your day to comment it really means a lot to me. I will be posting a response to your comment shortly. I’m really sorry I haven’t done so earlier.
