The Beauty of Body Diversity and Why It Is On Us to Represent It

Too many of us have looked at the covers of magazines or popular social media pages and questioned why they don’t reflect the diversities of the bodies we see around us. We ask ourselves why they keep selling ‘body positivity’ as body improvement. We wonder why they keep talking about body diversity but then encourage and teach us how to lose weight, cellulite, wrinkles, and really our unique body identity. We look at the covers and feel like there is something wrong with us, because we are never there. Even the real bodies of super models are not enough without tucking, smoothing, and photo shopping in to some bullshit idea of perfection. And then it hits us that no matter the time we put i

Is This Blog Just For Me?

Here is what I don’t know; I am 7 months in to the Women Do Blog and I don’t know if it is OK that in large part it is just for me. What do I mean?

I am by no means perfect, and I would never claim to have all the answers, but I have learned a few things along my own journey to self-love and I hope they are things that will also help you: No One Else W

You Are...Statements to Believe In and Live By

There are so many times I doubt myself or what I am doing. There are times that it seems I can’t get out of my own way. I think we all have these moments and the truth is they aren’t always fleeting; they can last weeks, months, or even years, but they seem to find their way in at certain times in our lives. I find for me, they most often occur when I am on the brink (and I may not know it yet) of taking a big step in my life or when something has failed and I am feeling lost. In these moments I try to remind myself of who I am, at the core, even when everything else is stripped away. If you have been following my social media this week you may have noticed it has been filled with simple ‘Yo
