I’m joining @themilitantbaker in the #GlorifyHappiness movement.
I love my body for many reasons. I love my big thighs because they are strong. They keep me moving. I love how I have strech marks and scars because it shows I’ve survived. I love my butt and won’t shut up about it
Join in the body positive and self love by posting your full-body picture with the hashtag #GlorifyHappiness and one (or several) reasons you love your body!
I’m often asked if by promoting body love, I’m glorifying obesity.
To that I say:If you’re really concerned about health, you’ll ignore the largely irrelevant factor of weight and focus on more significant issues like: making sure families can afford nutritious food and have access to education that allows them to provide. You’ll also focus on providing un-biased healthcare and you’ll help de-stigmatize mental illness so people aren’t afraid to ask for help and can lead mentally healthy lives which then allows physically healthy lives.
But regardless of health: I believe in glorifying all bodies. All of them. Because every single person in the entire world deserves to feel good about and love themselves. It’s that simple. Fat and thin; healthy and unhealthy. Everyone deserves happiness and when people start to embrace themselves just as they are, the world as we know it will transform into a happy, balanced, healthier (physically and mentally), and more beautiful place.
So y’know what I glorify?
I glorify HAPPINESS.
