positivity, encouragement and love

Sometimes we let life bog us down and day after day it just gets harder and harder. Make changes in the little things and give yourself some daily positivity to get yourself out of a funk. Little wall decals of inspirational quotes, bright colourful room decor, a good playlist that gives you life.
Don’t let daily “Blah” feelings bog you down- keep striving for positivity and love in all aspects of your lives! -Katie

Hey guys so here it is finally my Short Film created by Jimmy Lin & help from my Canadian family and myself

'Lost In Translation' 

Thank you for all the support, re-blog and leave me all the comments for me, 

LOVE YOU ALL FOR THE SUPPORT 

Rickyrichardstv

Sometimes our dreams become lost in translation with all that we fight with daily: work, school, social lives, beauty standards etc.

Stop looking to the future or dwelling on the past, live fully in the moment and be the best you that you can be in this day. You will move mountains! - Katie

This was a difficult picture to take, because even though I did like this new bathing suit - I haven’t worn a swimsuit in public in a long time- and I haven’t been out on a beach in over 4 years without being totally covered in a tshirt and shorts.
For the first time in almost 3-4 years I bared my scarred thighs, shoulders, and arms for everyone to see. I had my big but and thighs partying along the shoreline, I laid out however I wanted not caring about what position I was in and how I looked and if I looked “bad”. I just was- and tried to live as effortlessly as I could for a couple days… It’s not easy- and I’m not saying I’m totally confident with the way that I looked/look… but baby steps people. Baby steps.

You know, as I was walking through the mall today I saw this young girl and she just had me laughing and laughing. She was about 6, and dancing through the corridors as if she were the star of a disney animation- brilliant. Later through the journey to Sephora I saw another young girl, about 12 looking through the windows of a fancy jewelry shop- she had the most stunning red hair.
I couldn’t figure out what made me so sad when I thought about them later this evening, and you know what it was? It was the constant flow of compliments flooding through my head for these girls, yet for myself I’ve had nothing nice to say for a long while- I’m sure this is something many can relate to.
The girls in the photos above are all me, but why is it okay to be so in love with the girl in the top photos, yet when I see myself now I’m annoyed? You would never be cruel to the girl you used to be with big cheeks, cute ideas and a mind of her own- but growing up the way we do seems to give us permission to be awful to ourselves now.
We need to look at ourselves as if we were the young precious children we used to be- still are in so many ways. We all deserve happiness and kindness, and it should always start from within.
Love yourself- Katie Scarlett

Why is body love so hard to grasp? We spend all of our time fighting against ourselves that we forget to soldier up and fight for ourselves. Because in the end, all we truly have.. Is ourselves and that in itself should be enough to go to war. Our minds control our wakes and slumbers. Our limbs are the ones that roll us out of bed every day, and sometimes not at all. Our lungs shudder with every inhale yet exhale relief and satisfaction. And our hearts, oh.. Our hearts, keep beating even after every shit storm of a day. And for what? For us to just keep shitting on em’ out of self hate?
I will be the first person to say that in all of my years of existence I would’ve never, ever, posted a picture like this. So why now? If there is anything I’ve learned over the past year it’s that the human body is hilarious in every way yet truly remarkable and weight loss is onehellofa trip. You wake up one day and half of the weight you used to hide behind and throw around is gone. You no longer have that pillow to suffocate yourself with, that mask you used to identify with and you find yourself wondering who the hell you are or where you went in the first place.
Personally, I have never loved myself like I do now. I only loved myself on conditions; when I was dancing, when I could make someone laugh, or whenever I was hidden behind some type of flattering light and fabric. That is no way to treat your human, let alone spirit. What we crave as a whole is unconditional love. We want someone to curl up with us and comb through our hair whenever we look a mess and had a long day. But we’re never willing to do the same for ourselves? Why is that? Why must we always search for self gratification from outside sources? It is sad that this concrete jungle we live in has made it socially acceptable to tell one another “I love you” without questioning the true definition but outrageous to tell someone to genuinely “love themselves.”
So with that said, and all my thickness as vulnerable as ever for the eyes to see. I challenge, no.. I beg of you; to love yourself. One day at a time, take the time, to love every little; curve, crevice, dimple, bone, muscle.. and so on. Thank your little toe for always being there for your big toe. Thank your ass for its never ending support and healthy bowel system. Thank your smile for always lighting up the sky and those around you. Just.. thank yourself for being you. There is only ONE of YOU. So take care; physically, spiritually but most of all mentally. Self hate is no way to live. It’s just a slower form of suicide

It’s OKAY not to be okay! It takes time to love our bodies, and that’s something we all have to work on especially living in todays society where we’re told on the daily NO! You are beautiful, and you are worth every second here on this earth! Confidence is welcoming that with positivity and love will make things so much easier!

Fighting Disorder Is Hard.

This is my body, I’m not nude, I’m not being showy. I’m just a girl in a doctor who shirt who took time to take this picture in between laying in bed doing nothing for 8+ hours.

 How is it that we’re raised to hate ourselves, what kind of human survival is it to teach our daughters that they are worthless and ugly and never good enough? 

I’m fighting it. I’m fighting it everyday because there has GOT to be something wrong with the way I’m thinking. No animal is this self destructive on purpose, nobody is made this way. So I’m fighting this by thanking that which I hate.

Thank you for getting me through the days, for letting me travel through the snow and wind and treck through the Canadian winters to get to work everyday. Thank you for giving me the strength to do the things I take for granted. I take you for granted, and I’m so sorry. 

I’m going to pledge to start paying more attention to you, to give you the food you need in proper intervals, to try to be more active so you can help me in all the ways that you do, so that you can last me my whole life. 

This body is the only one I’ll ever have, and I’m going to start being thankful for it. 

I post daily positive reminders for self love and encouragement with mental illness, if you’re in need of help with anxiety, ED, mental health in general feel free to common over <3
