BELÅTEN . Jag tog ett beslut den dagen att bejaka skönhet. Att vara smal som jag så länge eftersträvat var inte det jag egentligen sökte, jag sökte att känna mig tillfreds, belåten och snygg i min egen kropp. Och när jag ändrade mitt fokus från att försöka bli smalare och istället bejakade min skönhet och valde att känna mig belåten – då skiftade allt. . När jag känner att jag börjar må dåligt i min kropp igen, känna mig pluffsig eller ful, och börjar tänka att jag behöver gå ner i vikt – då vet jag att jag fallit tillbaka i gammalt mönster. Då skiftar jag bara tanke och fokus igen, väljer att tona in på belåtenhetskänslan och vips så är jag i bättre mående och tillfredsställande spegelbild. . Det sitter inte i hur jag ser ut, vad jag väger eller storleken på mina kläder. Det sitter i mina tankar och vad de ger mig för känslor. Belåtenhet ger mig bra vibrationer. Belåtenhet får min spegelbild att bli le. Belåtenhet får mig att slappna av och sluta jaga lösningar i dieter och träningsformer. Belåtenhet får mig att känna att allt är bra – även jag.

💫Love The Skin You're In💫 Ok hands up if you love your body? I know this will shock some of you but it was a lot for me to strip down to a sports bra and bikini for this shoot, because as my best friend always tells me - I have body dysmorphia. I don't like my broad shoulders, my ever inflating and deflating belly, my ginormous rib cage, and muscly thighs blah blah blah. So recently I've been working on accepting and celebrating the skin I'm in, so what if it's not perfect. It's mine, I'll love and protect it and fuel it with all the good stuff and embrace all that it is each and everyday #lovetheskinyourein 💜
Natural hair girls listen up 💁🏽 #Repost @flawsofcouture (@get_repost) ・・・ On Wednesday July 19th 2017 alone: *Wears fro at work/in public* . EVERYONE & ANYONE: 1. "Whadya do? Put your finger in a socket?" *laughs...--by himself* 2. "Mmmm, not my favourite." (mind you, no one asked him if he liked it at all. But, okay.) 3. "Sasha, we're not going to like ALL of your hairstyles." (Again...but no one asked you to lik...) 4. "What..you got lazy? Didn't feel like combing your hair today?" *laughs...--alone* 5. "Woah...don't worry. You're still beautiful." 6. "Oh, What happened to the long hair? I love that one." 7. "You remind me of this lady I used to work with years ago. She wore her hair like that....couldn't stand her." *laughs---alone* . . All from different people. All in one day. Talk about tiring. To have to defend your natural appearance ALL DAY--is flat out FRUSTRATING and I did it for JUST A DAY. I just want to say, natural girls---I take my hat off to you. To be nit picked for your natural state EVERY SINGLE DAY (knowingly and sometimes unknowingly) and still keep up the momentum is more than commendable. And don't let anyone tell you that it's not. Because I don't see my white friends dealing with that at all. -As black women, we have to learn how to "COPE & DEAL" with the fact that we're living in a very white and thin world. Whether it be at work or on the bus. At the doctors or on road. EVERY & ANYwhere. It's happening. . . Lately, I've been in very deep thought. And as I grow older, I fall more and more in love with you and therefor with myself. Your resilience. Your adaptability. You are amazingly strong. And I just want to say that your beauty has NEVER been conditional. I mean look around---the world is our clone. No matter what you choose to do with your hair...you're perfect. Thank you for flourishing in your perfection. I've needed you. & The world needs you. . (*ABSOLUTELY NO, racist comments towards anyone. White or black. Only facts. Hate comments towards white people or black people will get deleted and you will be blocked.**)

I want to bring attention to the fact that calling someone "too skinny" or telling them to go eat some food IS body shaming. Today a customer who I had never met before found out I was vegan and told me "no wonder why you are so skinny" to my face. Not knowing since I've been vegan I've put on weight and have worked SO hard to get where I am today. I've always been a small woman and it took a long time for me to accept this since I've always wanted to put on weight. I'm so proud of my progress and for people constantly making these remarks can be sometimes hurtful. This is NOT and probably won't be the last time I hear something like this. Would it be okay if I told her she was the size she was because the way she eats? So why is it different? I'm healthy, I dance and lift weights and I eat pretty clean. I don't have it "easy" I want to have a little more curves and it's not "easy" I'm working hard to keep my weight up and I do eat a shit ton, i'm just a small woman. It gets old hearing comments like "real women have curves" or "you're a toothpick" or "go eat a cheeseburger". I've even had customers ask me how much I weigh because they are trying to see if they guessed right. TF! You wouldn't do that to a woman who is bigger than me. That shit is fucking rude and this applies for men dealing with this as well. Stop skinny shaming! We are all out here just trying to love ourselves and be happy in the skin we are in, not all your thoughts need to be said out loud. #StopSkinnyShaming#BodyShaming#LoveYourselfMore#BodyPositivity#SelfLove#BeKind#ThinkBeforeYouSpeak#Vegan#ThinShaming#StopShaming#WhatSizeAreYouAZero#Toothpick#DoYouEat#LoveTheSkinYoureIn
Why push play? Because once you get a taste of what it feels like to succeed? To do something (like making exercise a part of your daily routine); once you not only accept the challenges thrown at you, but do it with grace and determination? It's a mind blowing feeling. To push past excuses. To realize you're so much stronger than you ever thought you were. To feel powerful. To feel rooted in positive change. And who wouldn't want to feel like that? It's not just a workout, it's your life. It is commitment. To be the best versions of yourself. To stay connected with who you truly are and your work ethic. To honour it every single day. Just by pushing play. And that's why you show up. You'd be surprised in how much you can accomplish in your life by setting aside 30 minutes a day. This isn't your practice life.
In today's light test shot I saw a few things besides my sleepy eyes: powerful thighs. strong arms and steady hips that allowed me to achieve Pincha Mayurasana for the first time ever today (against a wall but still it counts) in my 6am yoga class (shoutout to my @yogaworks fam), and then proceeded to carry me to a beautiful work day (shoutout to my @justfabonline fam). not mad about any of it and these findings were inspired by my friend @iamemilynolan and her regular conversations about feeling healthy and strong in our #earthsuits ...I'm happy in mine today and I hope you are too.... #thisbody#lovetheskinyourein
