32 years ago today, I entered this beautiful, crazy world. A girl with a natural love for Mother Earth, a hunger for ancient wisdom, and a stubborn devotion to walk the path of my own inner guidance. Today, I am 32 with the same unbreakable spirit. Happier, wiser, and still growing, learning and evolving every day. Birthday or not, shouldn’t we all celebrate what makes us unique and special? In a world focused on status, appearances, busyness and carelessness, I will continue to believe in compassion, love, mindfulness and human connection. Today, I celebrate me!
Exactly 2 years ago 'The Body' competition launched with @womenshealthuk and my love/hate relationship with the fitness industry began.
I'm pretty passionate, loud and obnoxious on a number of issues: race, mental health, equality, rice, social mobility, consumerism, black cinema and detective dramas (see my recent story) but body image comes damn damn high on my list as something you cannot and should not fuck with. So back off social media & leave us alone before we hate you. .
In all honesty, I personally find it difficult to feel masses of fulfilment in this industry without feeling for all the positive impact
I (might) have, I might also be contributing to a wider selling agenda that feeds off negative body image. .
Social media is going to have alot to answer for when there is a lycra, avocado & pea protein shortage and everyone has back injuries from all the speed deadlift practice and shin splints from all the half marathons. Let's just chill out. It's Sunday. .
My Sunday question: Why is everyone fake laughing in their pictures? #bodyimage#bodyproud#sundayfunday#immadomeyoudoyou#reflection
I’m single, some may say “how can you handle being alone?” ya know what I’m happy🤷🏼♀️🤷🏼♀️ so the fucks it matter to you last time I checked it’s my life not yours. If it happens it happens if not idgaf I still can hold myself up without a guy! I’m not like you that relies on ya man! Fuck outta here 👌🏼👋🏼🤟🏼🤷🏼♀️😊#blondehair#fuckoff#immadomeyoudoyou#donttellmehowtolivemylife#single
Funny how I thought I couldn't be happy without you but when I found happiness I realized I was never happy with you. Good moments yes... happy? No. It's funny how you can miss someone who treated you so terribly. It's weird coming out of a relationship and learning all about yourself again. #thisismytime#immadomeyoudoyou#byehoe
