Wearing my Scars. At the end of the day , Scars do not define a person’s integrity and character. Scars can taint u physically but it doesn’t stop you from loving yourself . A while back , I was so scared to look at myself in the mirror . For a once flawless face , now scarred . Like a wrong twist in a fairytale....Cuz I embraced a beast and it bit me. But I don’t care what other people say. I would like to believe that goodness of heart will prevail over anything . And my acceptance of reality made me stronger than I ever was before ...And from inner strength ...and a pure soul , I can smile from the heart😊 . I don’t like to be superficial. I know my struggles . I know my strengths and I dealt with my pain like a gangster. Though I’ve been a cry baby too but toughen up anyways . I’ve been in rock bottom gazillion of times. I have loved and lost . I won some things and lost some . Yet life goes on !!! So if you’re just like me, True beauty goes way beyond what we see on the mirror or the camera. Never give up on yourself. Stay Driven . Stay Strong , Be Good and Keep Smiling.

It's been 6 years. You thought that you could control me. You thought that you could keep me in a cage. You told me that I was worthless. I was always the one who was wrong. You broke me. I was lower than the ground beneath your feet. Then you did it, you cut off my hair. Because of you I had my Phoenix moment, I got back up, I dusted myself off, I found my true self. What emerged from those flames was a warrior. So I took the scissors and I cut my hair. I made the decision that was never yours to make. I no longer need long hair to feel beautiful. I know my worth. I love myself. Your negativity no longer affects me. Your toxic energy will never again touch me. #domesticviolenceawareness#survivor#getbackup#findyourself#loveyourself#noweaponformedagainstmeshallprosper#pheonix#youarebeautiful#youareenough#youarestrong
It took me a while to be ok with it. I’ve always been different, I mean, look at my name, for goodness sake. It’s been a process, albeit a beautiful one. Hopefully I can instill in my children to be more than ok with it. I want them to celebrate their paths. I’ve had a lot of support, as well as a lot of naysayers (surprisingly from people I wouldn’t have expected), but each of them pushed me further and further on this path. I’m forever grateful for a loving God who cares for me enough to know better than I do. To gently nudge me here and there so that I can be who He’s designed me to be.
Positivity Pledge: “I shall no longer allow negative thoughts or feelings to drain me of my energy. Instead I shall focus on all the good that is in my life. I will think it, feel it, and speak it. By doing so I will send out vibes of positive energy into the world and I shall be grateful for all the wonderful things it will attract into my life.”
I’m making it a goal of mine to practice this affirmation 3-5 times daily until I have made it part of who I am, and something I do naturally.
If you repeat something whether it’s through actions or words, it will eventually come naturally to you. You just have to decide you’re going to do it, and you just do it.
I will be positive and grateful for all things. What about you? 🌟
"You'd be so much prettier if you had normal hair. You'll regret getting all of those tattoos when you're old. Why would you ruin your perfectly good looks with all of this other crap?"⠀
The great thing about beauty is that you yourself are the beholder. You not only get to decide how "pretty" you are, but you can also become curious and empowered enough to see the beauty in places where others are too scared to look... especially inside ourselves.⠀
Or, you can use one of my favorite replys:⠀
"Don't worry about it!" 😜
HAPPY LOVE YOUR BODY DAY!!!!! Now lemme explain these pics real quick *clears throat*
The first one: just a few weeks ago 💪
The second: my heaviest (2015)🤷♀️
The third: my thinnest (2013) 🤷♀️
The fourth and fifth: this past summer ☀️ It has been a very difficult processing loving all of these photos as much as I loved my “skinniest” photo but I worked through it and some days I have to work harder than others but that’s okay! So I’m celebrating myself and all the ways my body has looked over the years. I love every one of these photos. I just love the most recent photos the most! I’m certainly not my skinniest but I’m at my healthiest and strongest, and after years of struggle and internal battle...I couldn’t be happier. Not only am I strong and healthy, but I’m smart, kind, driven, funny and caring. Your body is so much more than just a physical part of you. It is the home to who you are. So today celebrate your body and all the other parts of you that call your body home 💛☀️ #bodypositivity#fightfattalk#youarebeautiful#youareloved#mentalhealth#selfcare#loveyourself#lovetheskinyourein#happiness#goodvibes#selfloveclub#fattalkfreeweek
Nic took so many good shots of me doing yoga in the sunset on the beach last week, but this blurry one ended up being our favorite. So see this and be inspired to do yoga. Ha. And who cares if you get a good shot of yourself in a difficult pose. Find beauty and inspiration in your present awareness in your present surroundings. Let it surprise you and then swim in it until your fingers get all pruny. You only live once. Yo-to-the-frickin-Lo, people! ❤️❤️❤️☀️☀️☀️👊🏻👊🏻👊🏻 #findthebeauty#getfullypresent#namaste#youarebeautiful#yolo
Life oh life.... ich frage mich wirklich oft wofür ich das alles mache und wohin mich das alles führen wird. Ob ich irgendwann von der Fotografie leben kann. Ob irgendwann vielleicht etwas komplett anderes daraus entstehen wird. Warum gerade ich mir rausnehme, mich Model zu nennen obwohl ich so viele Mädchen sehe die meiner Meinung nach sehr viel hübscher sind. Aber am Ende des Tages bin ich froh, dass ich mich traue es einfach zu machen weil mich dieser Weg bis jetzt zu so vielen tollen Menschen, Orten und Erfahrungen geführt und mir ein Selbstbewusstsein gegeben hat, dass ich einfach dankbar bin und weiter mache weil ich es liebe 📸 @theguevi 👕 @ehrenfeldapparel
Jag har aldrig varit säker i den jag är. Jahjag har aldrig varit säger på mig själv. Jag har inte haft den självkänslan och självförtroendet. Jag har bara varit jag. Och det är det som är så unikt. Jag är mig själv. Precis som du ska vara du! Gör som du själv vill och som du själv tycker! Ingen ska få bestämma över dig! Puss och kram😘😘
We are all BEAUTYful inside and out. My approach to BEAUTY is that everyone has their own definition of it and there should be no shame about this! We CAN ALL be BEAUTYful & SMART, so don't be afraid to show your true self! Life is too short, so make each day your day to rock! #breakupstomakeup
