Really! Let’s all just be majestic AF! LOL
You know, I have done a lot of soul searching in the past few years and have found some interesting insights into the world around us…into women especially. Two quotes that stand out to me just below:
Our uniqueness, our individuality, and our life experience molds us into fascinating beings. I hope we can embrace that. I pray we may all challenge ourselves to delve into the deepest resources of our hearts to cultivate an atmosphere of understanding, acceptance, tolerance, and compassion. We are all in this life together. – Linda Thompson
I need to see my own beauty and to continue to be reminded that I am enough, that I am worthy of love without effort, that I am beautiful, that the texture of my hair and that the shape of my curves, the size of my lips, the color of my skin, and the feelings that I have are all worthy and okay. As I get older, the more I stay focused on the acceptance of myself and others, and choose compassion over judgment and curiosity over fear. – Tracee Ellis Ross
Ladies, if you are reading this, please remember that you really are MAJESTIC AF! You are beautiful in your skin as it is. Your color, shape, hair, style – it all comes together to make you you. Wonderful you!
I was talking to a friend the other day and he told me that another friend was looking good and “getting right” by loosing weight during a very difficult time in her life. And I blasted him saying something along the lines of: She was perfect at the size she was before her life started to fall apart, asshole. And if she is happy at this size, good for her. But fuck you for putting worth on a woman’s size. You, my friend, are exactly why we – as an entire gender population – have issues with ourselves instead of embracing who and how we are.
It is so important for us to women to build each other up when an entire world is working to tear us down. We may not see it as blatant as I did during the conversation, but the advertisements, tv shows, movies, shit, media all around us continue to pinch at us to let us know, even if it is silently, that we are not good enough or worthy because we don’t fit into a certain mold. Well, I have had enough and I hope you have too.
Your crown may be crooked, queen, but I will never make fun of you for that. I will help you straighten it out and we can hold our heads high together. Do you know what is actually beautiful, my friends? Confidence. Be proud of who you are and of every speckle on your body no matter if it is large or small. And own those scars that have built you to be the person you are today…wear them proudly. Lets all pull together and help the next generation coming up find their beauty within and have the confidence to let it shine! Be unique. Be compassionate. Be yourself. Be loved first by loving yourself. And last but certainly not least, be majestic AF!
