Body image

Today I want to talk about body image and why you should be confident and embrace your body.

It’s easier said than done especially in this insane media world with diverse people who define beauty by their own standards. It can be very self-conflicting to see people around you or on the internet with banging bodies that you don't have.

I believe it happens to the best of us and it’s nothing to be ashamed of. However, it is something that has to be stopped or at least reduced to the barest minimum.

We are all created differently and It’s for good reason, if everybody had a figure 8, the world would be such a boring place trust me. So just understand your body and go with exactly what works for you. It can be a good thing to dress solely according to your body shape but it can be limiting as well, I’d say wear what makes you comfortable las las everybody will be alright.


I have heard people say short girls should not wear long or midi skirts, that plus-sized girls should not wear floral, prints or turtle neck. Some say tall girls should not wear heels. Lol, what other silly punch lines have you heard?. 

Note that this is not me telling you to look dishevelled or unstylish. This is me saying be free and comfortable, enjoy whatever you like regardless of your body shape. I love  Chanel ambrose I have learned a lot about body confidence from her.

Do not let social media intimidate you, heck! most people only put up their best part or the best angle and that's fine. Don't throw a pity party for yourself over someone's portfolio. Don’t dim yourself over someone else's highlight reel. It’s okay to make an effort to slay. I edit the hell out of pictures sometimes, so just relax you are fine!

I recently watched a video about young girls talking about body Image Click here to watch, maybe it will encourage you to know that you are not alone and most people especially women go through self-esteem issues at different points in their lives. The struggle is real.

See digital tummy tuck, I couldn't breathe lol, I love it's never that deep. 

Also, there are lots of people who want to change certain things about their bodies and that’s okay. If you can’t come to terms with the body you have, then try to do something about it. It's up to you. Do not keep looking and hating yourself, hit the gym, go on a clean diet or invest in your skincare routine, get down to work and rebuild your body into that awesome masterpiece. If it’s plastic surgery you want to do, by all means, carry on but please do it well please I beg you, please.

I once saw a lady with a hexagonal bum, like her behind, was almost square. People of God save up and do it properly. There is a thin line between increasing the size of your bum and looking like a kangaroo. Your nose must not be as sharp as a double-edged sword before you have peace, the nose is for breathing and if you can breathe then your nose is perfect.

I have watched some mind-blowing plastic surgery documentaries and videos, Watch It's crazy.  Just to add stretch marks are like tiger stripes and I find it beautiful and honourable. If you have them like me don’t try to cover it or be ashamed. It is totally normal.

Love yourself because if you don’t, you’d be too miserable and thus not disciplined enough to make the changes you desire. You can read this article it will encourage you to be more confident in thyself.

Body image and the media
Say nice things to yourself as for I look like a trillion box of vanilla


Listen to me!

Your small boobs are cute, your big boobs are great. Your big belly is fun, your flabby arms will lead you to good places and hold lovely memories. Those tiny legs are sexy! 

Whether you are big, small, tall, slim, medium or anything just know that you are enough and at the end of the day it’s not what size you wear but how you wear your size.

Give up on your insecurities and go look long and hard in the mirror until you start to see and feel good about your self or perhaps take a selfie-and declare to yourself. ‘’I am fearfully and wonderfully made, I am enough and I matter.’’

 I love you and I hope you learned a thing or two or three or more about body confidence,  body image, and the media. Till next time I wish you peace, don't forget to stare long and hard in the mirror it's been proven to help you embrace your body.
