foolish mistakes, but whatever, they are all mine.
Mostly-cis, fat ,middle aged, bisexual, disabled, white femme. My hobby is seeing how many years I can add to my collection before I die.

Posting will be random but may contain fat acceptance, wool, and cats, lagomorphs and corvids in no particular order. Posting may also be sporadic as I have ME/CFS and a bunch of other stuff that makes me tired and some times crabby.

If you follow me this is something VERY important for you to understand:

betterthandarkchocolate:

Confidence is not vanity.

Being confident in yourself and your appearance is not a bad thing, in fact it is a very good thing.

We live in a culture that encourages “modesty”, to be critical of oneself and ones appearance. Where loving who you are is perceived as a “flaw”. Where not criticising yourself is seen as being conceited. 

I lived for the longest time hating myself and who I am. I refuse to do this now for others comfort.

Loving who you are, just as you are, is a wonderful thing. This does not mean you cannot or don’t want to change or improve, nor does it mean you are perfect.

I will continue to be confident in myself. If you think that is a problem, than maybe my self esteem is not the issue, maybe YOU are.

I think it is important for me to reblog this regularly.

i was looking at tumblr with the 11-year old daughter of my friend and a bunch of fatspo and fat babe ootd blogs came up on my dash and i noticed she was being super quiet and i look down and i swear to god, this precious girl is crying and when i asked her why she says ‘i didn’t know people who look more like me could look so pretty and have pretty clothes. that means i am pretty’ and she was smiling as she said it

REPRESENTATION IS SO FUCKING IMPORTANT, don’t EVER tell me it isn’t

I am enough. Like it or not. I don’t “promote obesity” I promote loving yourself regardless of your exterior. Sometimes people are so busy focused on the fact that I am “fat, curvy, plus size” that they don’t even listen to what I am saying. I also get people who say I am “fake” or that I don’t live what I preach & to those I say KISS my bootay. I have stepped out of my comfort zone so much in the past years while I discover who I am & find my confidence. The ones pointing the fingers probably wouldnt dare do half of the things I have done. However even though they are so quick to judge me or make assumptions, I keep doing ME in hopes that one day they will realize that they can love the skin they are in without feeling the need to tear others down. I never claimed to have all the answers or be the Mother Teresa of the body positive movement, but I do know that life is so much better when you embrace who you are & stop caring what everyone around you is doing. #effyourbeautystandards
