🌿🌱 From @rachel.cargle, who is always brilliant and always 1000000% on point: Good morning: • 🌿 it’s not enough to be not racist. You have to be actively and intentionally doing the work against the things that oppress, dehumanize and marginalize people. • Drop an emoji below if you HEAR me. I need you to hear me. . . . My free #DoTheWork email course is available at the link in my bio. It’s an excellent place to start your deep dive into the conversation of race and includes daily actions you can take with intention.
❤️🙌💯 I thought the Allies of all Size shirt @shesallfatpod sent to me was the PERFECT choice to wear to a workshop on how to make yoga spaces more size inclusive. (I was right😘) - Also, doing a workshop from the comfort of a couple of bolsters simply can't beat standing near a podium in my world 👌. - S/O to @yogaoasistucson for hosting ALL KINDS of decolonizing yoga spaces workshops for their instructors ❤️
🌱🌿🌳 I've been feeling this on a soul level for a while now. ✨ Quote/caption from 👉 @alex_elle: because there is a gift waiting to greet you. it’s nestled deep inside your ability to let go, lean in, and trust your process + evolution. . . community: what are you outgrowing? how are you leaning in and trusting your process?
❤️🧁🍫Chocolate cake batter dripping all over my body. - This was a collaborative series done in my kitchen (by Liora K) showcasing the dissonance between the traditional homemaker, her social obligation to cook and bake for her family and yet... Not being able to allow herself to partake in any of the food (especially the pleasure associated with it!) that SHE created. - It's an old trope to be sure (and 💯% reminds me of the pinch an inch rule + in-home calipers), but is somehow STILL relevant in so many ways today... Don't you think?
From my absolute fav, @fat_baaaby: surprise again, u unenlightened little bich, there’s more🤪 #KickingInterernalFatphobiasAss #OneDayAtATime #InternalizedFatphobiaRunsDEEP
🎂❤️ SELF PORTRAIT TIME ❤️🎂: Yep, I'm most DEFINITELY covered in cake ingredients. Whipped cream frosting hair, chocolate ganache eyebrows, sprinkles galore and a fully lit tiara of birthday candles🔥. - (📸 Cameras with a 10-second self-timer are my best friend.) 💯I figured this would be an great (and excessive) exploration of the unpredictable and ridiculous baker that I have been and still--with practice--can be. - Q: 🎉👉 If you could represent one of the things you love to do IN A SELF PORTRAIT, how would YOU do it?!?
👆❤️ @yrfatfriend always takes the things I'm thinking and waves a magical wand (it's actually just pure talent... no magic needed) that organizes them into the most eloquent words... And I'm forever grateful for this message and for her. - Fat people, ❤️ you are deeply, DEEPLY loved in all of the ways ❤️.
🍊🛁🍋 Hello from my bath aka my personal escape from the world + my brain. - (Grapefruit and Bergamot bath bomb bag from @lucidlivingco) - #NotSpon #WaterIsHellaHealing #BathSupplementsMakeThemExtraFun #BandedAgate
A message from (me and) @mexakitsch: I really appreciated seeing this today and I thought it was a good message to pass along to my fellow creatives. I’ve been guilting myself a lot lately for falling behind on art projects and so I’m trying to be mindful of the fact that I’m focusing on myself and my family during a really difficult time and it’s important for me to do so. I’ll be back on track and pumping out work like my usual self but right now my energy is needed elsewhere. Don’t feel bad for doing this, you guys. Even if it’s not a serious situation like mine.... you’re a human being, not an art factory. Take a moment to breath.....unclench your jaw.......release your shoulders from your ears...... remove your tongue from the roof of your mouth......and relax. Love you guys, Elrod ❤️
