Body positivity matters

I'm a HUGE proponent of body positivity. I see countless posts on social media shaming people for their appearances that are just mean and toxic. I've been a mom comforting a teen who's been picked on for being too skinny, and another one who's been picked on for being too curvy. Darned if you do, darned if you don't! People's bodies are unfairly subjected to way too much derision, and we need to be better than this. If you've ever been teased or shamed, you are not alone, and I'm sending you hugs and love.. Along with this utterly fantastic response by singer P!nk. Here's how she responded to some toxic body-shamers:


And if that's not touching, have you seen this amazing speech by P!nk about self-acceptance? This is truly a beautiful message from a mother to a daughter about being your authentic self and seeing your beauty, rather than feeling ashamed. Even if you've seen it before, it still gives the most beautiful shivers. My own mother body-shamed me as a teen, and it was so cathartic watching this.

And while I try really really hard to be positive and enthusiastic about almost everything, I just can't feel that way about body-shaming. Sorry mom, butΒ you suck for doing that to me.πŸ‘Ž That was toxic and horrible... and there's good reason why I never body-shamed my daughters the way you did yours.πŸ˜‡ It leaves lasting scars, the exact opposite of your job to nurture and protect.πŸ™ƒ Nope, the world needs more moms like Pink. 😍

Much love and hugs to anyone who's ever been body-shamed. And do see this, you'll love it. πŸ₯°πŸ€©πŸ‘‡

I have such an ardent desire to make things that fit people of ALL body types.. tall, short, slender, fuller... all of it. If I haven't made something to fit you, please, do not EVER say that you're the wrong size. I had a dear friend at a craft fair say "I'm too fat to fit into this" while admiring one of my coats and I just about ran out crying, it just broke my heart. If I haven't made something to fit you, that's MY shortcoming, not yours. Sometimes I don't have the right size materials to make the size you need and that's not at all within your control.Β 

Whoever you are, wherever you are, be a beautiful person on the inside, and I promise you, it makes you beautiful on the outside! Just be the real you, because the real you is BEAUTIFUL.
