Positive Body Advocacy

Let's talk about body positivity, consent, advocation for your body

and confidence from within

"Positive Body Advocacy not only includes body positivity, but also incredibly important issues such as consent, domestic violence survival/recovery, body image and feeling confident in your body and what feels good to you.

The point is, your body is exactly that - yours. 

 

It doesn't belong to your partner, your mother-in law, your friend or the stranger that looks at you up and down in the shops. It belongs to you. 

 

It's about owning your body, loving your body and actively choosing kindness everyday towards your body even if it feels like it is completely failing you. It's about not comparing what you have to someone else, because what you have is uniquely yours for a reason. It's about learning who you are, what makes you who you are and embracing every part of that with compassion and acceptance. 

You see, I had to learn the hard way to love my body. So many people had taken power away from my body that by the age of 24 I was ready to end it all. 

 

I have been 60kgs and I have been 160kgs. But it's funny, although I was aware of my "flaws" I was never truly bothered as I think I knew the only way I would survive this world was if I found something within me to love first.

Positive Body Advocacy is the act of choosing to have compassion for yourself and what you are surviving. You see, we don't realise, but our beautiful bodies go through so much every single day! Whether we admit it or not, we are so hard on them physically, mentally and spiritually. 

So instead of forever wasting your energy hoping for "one day", love and embrace yourself today!

 

When I learnt this same lesson, I realised that joy was in front of me the entire time!"
