Our mission: to love ourselves, every last inch! To support others, help build positive self esteem! This is The Body Peace Revolution!
This is a place of encouragement, a place to talk about body image, a place for feeling beautiful. No matter what you look like, what color, what gender, what size or however many "flaws", healthy, not healthy, working on it, we are all human, we all deserve to be happy, we all deserve to love ourselves. With this blog you will see all kinds of REAL bodies, REAL people, REAL stories.

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.
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.
I see you.
I SEE YOU.
I see that it takes all of you to get out of bed in the morning,
that you are using all your strength to dress and clothe yourselves,
that sometimes it feels like the effort to walk to the door is so much-
so you don’t.
I see you.
I see that sometimes you’re overwhelmed by this invisible weight weighing on you so heavily that you can’t continue.
I see you.
I know that you put your every, single, bit of strength into just being here.
Body love and body positivity doesn’t come easy for a lot of us, and sometimes we can fall into emptiness and that is something that needs to be combatted by help from others.
You’re all amazing- you’re worth it and you’re not alone <3
