Happy Birthday to this beautiful, brave, boss woman! @mars___1 is a speaker at the #confidencecampaign sharing her journey as a girl of color, from a family of not much to a confident, successful and generous woman on a mission to help other women in engineering. Send you so much love and light Marissa!!
I’m still trying to process the amazingness that happened yesterday at the #confidencecampaign yesterday. I’m so grateful to @heatherfoleyfit for hosting the event at her delicious restaurant @bistro135tracy I’m also so thankful for all the speakers, staff & volunteers that worked so hard to create this inspiring event @bluecheeze14 @chrissie677 @lacybooboo @bevadamo @stylebymalia @mrs.thangsinthehouse @digitallegacy1 @throughbrighteyes And most of all, I’m so so proud of all the women who showed up ready to receive the message that no matter what they’ve been through or where they are now, they are worthy and beautiful. With all the positive feedback and as we all continue to heal and grow, I’m excited about some new changes for the #confidencecampaign in 2019. We will take the fall off to regroup and get through our busy fall portrait season and we will be back with more truth and healing energy to share in the new year. In the meantime, we still have a handful of spots remaining for the #AwakenYourGoddess retreat in Hawaii Feb 23-27...check out our website for details.
Who can relate? So, you know logically in your head that you are worthy, valued and beautiful just the way you are as your unique self....BUT you’re still struggling with feeling that love for yourself. You are in a state of forcing yourself to be positive. You are struggling trying to convince yourself and truly feel these self love ideas floating around in your head. How do you go from the idea of self love to full embodiment of self love? This is the mission of our #awakenyourgoddess Retreat in Hawaii...to learn the soul work needed to cultivate self love, because it’s so much more than just knowing you should love yourself. It can take time to identify & change your negative patterns with positive loving ones. We all have different stories and we all have our shadows as well as our light. Becoming conscious of the story/lies you tell yourself about who you are and who you aren’t, will free you to see the truth of who you are in your heart...and that is your goddess. You will be immersed in an experience of unconditional self acceptance and connection to your mind, body and soul. We only have 5 spots available for this #retreat and we would love for you to join us. Check out more info on our website (link in bio).
Throwback to 2015 when Olympian @abingson Amanda Bingson was chosen for the cover of ESPN. I wish we could see even more examples of real bodies of every type and size. We are all different and we each are beautiful if we can put down the beauty filters created by industries to make a profit by making real humans feel like we aren’t enough just the way we are. #youareenough #effyourbeautystandards #bodypositive #confidencecampaign
One of the things I talk about at the #confidencecampaign event is learning to recognize if a message from a social media influencer/doctor/diet program/ friend etc makes you feel like you’re not enough, you need to make a change and unsubscribe, find a new doctor, evaluate friendships and stop buying into destructive diet culture that equates your worth or happiness on a number on a scale. You don’t need to buy into the illusion that we will be happier if we were thinner, taller, tanner etc. The truth is that happiness and true love for yourself comes from within yourself. You don’t buy it or achieve it. You already have it if you can let yourself feel your unconditional love for yourself. But how?? Come hear several women share their vulnerable stories of struggle with negative body image and their secrets to achieve self acceptance & love. Next event is Sept 15 12pm at @omni_fightclub in Walnut Creek. RSVP link in bio.
