Growing up, I felt like all women were thin. TV, movies, magazines all featured touched-up photos of lean models. The women in my family did not look like this. My neighbors didn’t look like this. We held ourselves to a ridiculous standard of beauty. And we failed. 

Seeing people who look like me in advertisements and social media, seeing unphotoshopped bodies celebrated and sexy, has helped me be more kind to myself. I am so grateful for the wave of reality that is taking over. One way that I have found to get the most out of the body positivity revolution is to curate my social media feed with inspirational content. 

Every day is a good day to celebrate beauty and style. For gorgeous settings and a more gorgeous woman, I follow @personalbravery.


I’m lucky enough to be friends with Jess. She is the real deal with her loving messages and warm, lovely aesthetic. @jessinspace

Caroline’s mission of  being “Fiercely fat positive. Anti-diet. Pro-joy.” resonates deeply with me. Plus she’s a super fun splash of exuberance with killer dance moves. @justmeandmymirror

I think we all have something we would like to be reassured about. And I promise, there are like-minded people out there showing the way. The good news is out there. Be kind to yourself and curate your social media with what feeds your soul.
