New Year: New Start

Hey there,

The new year has come upon us once again. It’s a time where resolutions are made with fervour and hope, and months later left to rot in the dusty grave of resolutions past.

With all the pressure of a new year to make changes the hype seems to go to our heads and when the glamour of the resolutions fade, it too just fades away. For that reason I’ve been very off new years resolutions, mostly because I know myself and fear that I will quit for fear of losing…Therefore losing but at my own hand and nobody else’s. A little stupid don’t you think?

Well this year I’ve declined a lot in my personal growth, I’ve reverted back into old habits of negativity. I’ve become stuck in a lot of ways because of certain life situations that are out of my control and I’ve let them get to me, and hurt me instead of using them to make me stronger.

So, since I’ve noticed it has made a difference just in the past month, I’ve decided to continue with positivity. 

Affirmations of hope, happiness, worth and encouragement to push me forward have really improved the way I think and I want to make this a daily act to reinforce this positivity.

This new blog “Katie Scarlett’s Letters" is a place where I will be writing letters daily, weekly, sporadically from my soul to yours- hopefully it will spur on some positivity in yourself and you’ll be able to move forward with happiness.

Positivity <3

Sometimes it’s really hard to be positive, especially when it feels like the odds are against us. 

But it can make a world of a difference just welcoming positivity into your life, be it by sweeping clean your Facebook/tumblr  ”friends” of toxic people, following more positive blogs and getting away from things that my trigger negative thoughts or behaviours.

Baby steps toward positivity slowly creates a better environment and you can slowly start to eliminate the outside negativity in your life that you can at least control! 

It’s not something that can help everything but it does make a difference and is worth the effort <3

I love you all- stay strong!

Recovery : It’s Not Easy- But It Can Happen!

 We’ve planted roots in pain and unhappiness, in our struggles and suffering but we don’t have to stay rooted in that- we can take those things with us into the future and grow from them in other ways and hopefully more positive and helpful ways.

Music By: Orla Gartland

Recovery is possible for all of us, and if you’re in a place of deep rooted negativity and pain - know that people are here for you <3 

Grab hold of the positivity you can, and if you can’t right now? Surround yourself with good people who can and hopefully they’ll spread some of their light your way- you’re amazing and worth every minute of recovery and never think differently!

BE BRAVE! JOIN THE BODY PEACE REVOLUTION!

Sometimes Fashion Sucks:

This week has been a bad week in the fashion department for me. As much as I want to love it I really hate the fashion world we live in where discrimination against size is so drastic. I want to live in a world where bodies are respected and adored for the hard work they do everyday to give us what we love, not judged for what we perceive as healthy based on the standards of photoshop and Top Model. 

I’m sick of living in a society that shames us into thinking we’re unworthy and that we don’t belong, and perpetuates this unhealthy mindset all toward the goal of looking “healthy”. 

Health comes in all shapes and sizes, stop pretending that it doesn’t.

I recently had some bad experiences shopping and it was really weighing on me and I thought I would share.

I feel for all of you going through the same garbage, and I feel for those of you that have it worse than me with bigger sizes. We need more people to realize that cutting off fashion at a size 12 isn’t fair and we deserve to be seen!

Joeie and I have been seeing a lot of negative “weight” pictures with people writing words like worthless, stupid, ugly, fat, and horrible on them.
We decided to do the same but with a positive message.People can’t tell what kind of person you are, who you care about, what you’re interested in, who you love. They don’t know what you’ve done or what you’ve been through.
Their opinions are so silly and blind that they don’t even deserve to be heard.
This is how someone who loves you sees you, and there are always people who love you. 
“Sweet, Smart, Nice, Talented, Loving, Brave, Generous, Gorgeous, Kind, Perfect, Caring, Beautiful, Funny, Sensitive, Patient, Charitable, Fun, Amazing”
..and we gave him a heart on the outside to remind you he has a heart on the inside.This goes for you too ladies.
Lastly, we wrote “human” because no matter what you think about anyone, they matter and they have the capabilities of anyone you’ve ever known,so be kind.

This is the start to a simple, personal poster series focused on getting my perspective across in a direct way about a number of things. I will be focusing on everything from aesthetic beauty and fat to self acceptance, physical/mental health, disorders, confessions and proclamations. Stay tuned for more in the coming weeks, as I continue to procrastinate on the work I should be doing by focusing on the work I’d RATHER be doing.

The future overwrites the past.

beingbelle:

Move on. Take what you’ve learnt, stick it in your pocket, and keep on walking. Use this moment, it will soon be the past. Make the most of every second. Make memories, smile, live. This is the youngest you will ever be again.

Remember the past, sure. It holds key information for how to act, think, and be in the future. But let it be. It is gone. It is no more.

Live for the now, live for the soon to be. Forget, forgive and live.
