I'm just a fat gal with a blog and an opinion. Well, lots of opinions.

Just Do YOU!


No on else is gonna do it for you!

No one else can know your inner most desires and needs.

No one else can honor your radical awesomeness!

Even if they tried, it would only be a sliver of it’s full potential.

Trying to fit in is trying to betray who you really are.

Conformity is for the birds!

Wave your freak flag with the widest smile & make lots of eye contact!

Shake things up & shake your ass!

Be honest with yourself, first & foremost…then spread that honesty all over the damned place!

Be kind. To yourself, to others, to your body, to your heart.

Take time if you need it, as much as you need.

Time doesn’t heal all wounds, but it does give you the chance to grow & learn & find new perspectives so you can heal.

Forgive yourself for previous harm & pain you’ve caused yourself. This matters.

Let go of anything or anyone holding you back or down.

Find a ray of sunshine & twirl in it’s warming beam!

Be alone in your room if you want. It’s okay & you don’t need to explain yourself to anyone.

Tell your body you are thankful for all that it does…embrace it with your hands.

Surprise yourself! See if you can touch your toes or reach a high shelf or sing a song you didn’t think you could!

Treat yourself the way you’ve always wanted others to treat you.

It’s okay to wine & dine yourself, because you’re a fabulous date, companion & lover, too!

Take one small step towards tackling something that is weighing on your mind today. A little goes a long way.

Tell someone you love them. Don’t wait for their response. Do it just to do it.

When you walk into a room, any room, pretend all eyes (even if there are none) are in awe of you!

You are amazing & lovely & fabulously YOU!

I love you for that! <3

    Just about every person on earth should print this out and look at it every day.

    Life would be better if we all did that.

    Also? what Jeanette said. So there.

    Oh, and in honor of Ragen’s Thank a Fat-Positive Activist Day, Thank you very much.
