Your body is a Masterpiece

“I am beautifully and wonderfully made
by God, the one true Master.

Ergo, I am a Masterpiece.”

You might be thinking, ‘this is different from your other posts’. You’re not wrong; I mostly just style outfits and discuss them. However, I wanted to discuss this topic because………let’s just say growing up was tough the way I was.

I was a chubby child. I was always, told it was a bad thing. Even made fun of for being that way. This then led me to hate my body because I always thought that my body wasn’t amazing because others didn’t think my body was amazing. I was completely wrong. So in my mid-teens, I decided to take exercising seriously and even went on a diet. I did lose weight but my perception of me was still negative. This was because I would look at other women and want their type of physique, often comparing my body to theirs. Their body types were adored by the public, and so because I didn’t have that body type, I thought I would never be adored. I was wrong yet again.

I have noticed that my problem was, I let other people’s views and thoughts affect how I see and love myself. I let what they said (or didn’t even say) determine if my body was worthy of being called beautiful. I can’t even blame them, I blame myself for hating myself.

I eventually grew out of it because I decided ‘why should I allow what others say about my body to determine if I love it or hate it? Why can’t I just accept that my body is beautiful no matter what anyone thinks?’. I won’t lie and say that it was easy to accept my body as beautiful, but as I’ve grown I’ve embraced who my physique and learned to love myself: taking care of my body, wearing clothes that make me feel amazing and most of all ACTUALLY loving myself because (as cheesy as it sounds) I’m the only me in this whole world. LIMITED EDITION!

But you all get the picture. I know it can be difficult for some to accept their body as gorgeous, but it is. You are. So as I dedicate this blog to several body types in appreciation of their beauty, want you to realise that it isn’t just one body type that is a masterpiece, all are. Appreciate yourself too darling because you are a masterpiece!!

I just want to say thank you to all the girls who allowed me to style and model them. Special thanks to my friend Kim for inspiring this post!
