Curves

 

I was supposed to be in Baltimore on Friday night. I was delayed at the airport for nine hours due to weather and flew in at 1:30am on Saturday. I woke up at 8:00am and got ready to help at Curves Rock Weekend Fashion Show.

I had a game plan. Lack of sleep wasn’t going to stop me.

Faces beat before the show. Pose.

I was on my way to the Curves Rock Discussion Panel and bumped into this beauty, Jade of K Station Boutique in Baltimore, MD. She tells me she has this dress in stock as well.

The panel discussion was about confidence, self-esteem, breaking into the industry, and much more.

I am my own worst critic. There’s many things that I loved that I stopped doing because I “wasn’t good enough”. Because what I looked like was “disgusting”. The things I wrote about would “disgrace” my family, my religion, myself. For five years, I didn’t do anything. And, resented the fact that I wasn’t living in my purpose. I was floating along life, mimicking what I thought people like me did. They didn’t model. They didn’t cuss. They made their husbands happy. They stayed out of the way. But, most of them were doormats. I chose to put it all out there. On the internets and become myself 😂🤣 There will always be critics. People who don’t read nothin you say or have no idea what you stand for but will look at your body and judge you based on that and that alone. The person in the next slide (swipe over) keeps referring to my body as “that” which means they don’t see my fat glory as human. He/she calls me disgusting. Calls me a disgrace. But, their profile pic says “Inspiration”. My body is my temple. I am a queen. I appreciate what my body does for me despite my size. Period! 👏🏾 And, a reminder for you if you are struggling with body hate—from yourself or others or society—your body is a grand temple. Adorn it. Hug it. Nourish it. In what ways do you overly criticized your self, your body? What advice would you give someone who is critical of their self? Let’s chat.
