“You are allowed to be both a masterpiece and a work in progress,
simultaneously.” – Sophia Bush
I don’t know how many times I’ve read about how you should feel
comfortable in your own body, how you should appreciate your flaws and
embrace them, how we’re all not perfect and we don’t need to be.
Everyday I see more and more people being real and true to themselves
and they are fierce and wild and free and I want to be like them.
For a long time I didn’t realise that being like them ultimately meant
That is the magic about them: there is none, except for the magic of
being themselves. Which is pretty damn powerful if you ask me.
I also acknowledged how afraid I can be to try something new and it
got pretty clear to me that I didn’t even know who I was without that
Because I was so swayed by people’s judgements and how they would
react to what I was doing. I wasn’t only afraid, I just didn’t know
what I wanted because there was no room for me to try and figure it out.
Ultimately it wasn’t about the people surrounding me but how I let
them affect me and I really had to learn how to be on my own for a
I realised 3 things.
The real people will stay in your life and support you on your way.
Not everyone will accept or like everything you do. And thats SO fine.
Because we are all different and as long as you love what you do and
who you are you have everything you need.
We are all our own person and we are not depending on anyone but it’s
nice to surround yoursel with good people.
It is so important to be with people who accept you for who you are,
who are kind and loving and supporting.
People you can exchange good energy and motivation with. Who make you
feel more powerful after you spent time with them.
But let’s get back to the topic of this.
Body positivity is already a huge thing in our society nowadays. I
love how the trend is going towards being more real. I think we should
all be more pure and true to ourselves and also accept that life isn’t
No one is always happy and that is fine because we need changes in our
lives, we need sadness to feel happy again.
It’s like a sunny day after a long period of rain. Or even the other
way around, the big storm after a heatwave (love and hate that at the
same time though because it scares me a little bit).
Let’s embrace the storms in our lives. Let’s talk about how afraid we
were about the lightnings and the thunder that shook us.
Let’s speak about the calm before the storm, being in denial of
something, the state of depression we were in before we got where we
wanted to be. Let’s embrace our weaknesses.
Let’s be soul positive. We need to accept our souls, not only our bodies.
I think it all starts within us. Our bodies are the mirror of how we
feel inside. So we should worry less about how we look and more about
how we feel.
I want depths and real conversations. I’m not interested in people who
have ‘it all figured out’.
I want to see insecurities, flaws and realness.
The world is ready to be happy and kind and weak.
Let that storm wash away your barriers.
Have a lovely day.
