Buzzing my hair has been something which I have known for awhile that I would like to experience once in my life, but up until now I didn’t have the courage to go through with it. Finally I decided that the opportunity to cross this experience off my bucket list should not be denied to me because of my gender. I’m proud of myself for not letting society impose it’s definition of femininity on me and for having the confidence to let go of my figurative comfort blanket (my hair). I expect to be the subject of a lot of scrutiny, but I’m happy with my decision. I am a gorgeous, empowered woman… with or without hair (: Come visit me at onthepathtoserenity.tumblr.com

Even though many people have pointed out that I am a slim girl, I still feel insecure about my body but it wasn’t until I took this picture did I finally get some confidence about my body :) (age 19)

Okay so when I’m high I think I’m so pretty. That’s why I love Mary Jane she makes me so comfortable in my skin. So when I’m high I usually take really confident pictures of myself like the ones above, but I’ve never actually gone through with posting them. So right now I’m posting them so people see how happy I am in my skin. I learned to love every piece of me. It’s okay to be happy with who you are. They say the one who is confident in her skin is sexy but that one who doesn’t know she’s sexy is Beautiful. Well I say fuck that! We need to be confident, this is the skin we were born in too and the skin we’re growing old in so let’s enjoy being who we are! If any of you ever need to talk or simply someone to listen, i’m here crazycrush.tumblr.com

I’ve been on tumblr a long time, and while I always embraced body positivity, I don’t think I ever realized how down on myself I actually was.
My best friend took this photo of me a year ago while on our trip to Europe. 
When I saw it, I was really insecure about it.  I felt that I looked large and tired and overall bloated.  I put it aside for such a long time, I forgot it existed, and I avoided photographs for a long time.  While I always encouraged friends to embrace their bodies and practice positive thinking, I wasn’t really doing the same for myself.  I preached that I was comfortable in my own skin, yet I still refused to be photographed (which is a hard thing to do, surrounded by art major, I might add).
In the past year, I’ve done a lot of work with myself emotionally, and I see things differently now.
-I have fat, but I am so much more than that.
-Yes my face is squishy.  But it’s the only one I have and I will have to live with it my entire life, so I might as well love it. :)
-I look happy here, and that’s what’s most important.  A healthy mind and a healthy body. <3
I came across this photo again today, and I LOVE IT SO MUCH.  I love my body and my face and I’m not so insecure anymore.  I’m happy with myself, physically and emotionally :)
I will make sure to submit more often- I love all you awesome folks!

I haven’t submitted in a long time and even though I thought I was in a good place the last few times I did submit, I am now even better…This just proves that you can always improve our attitude towards anything…yourself, your life etc. I started kickboxing this year and yeah it has helped me change my body on the outside but also I have become amazed at the things my body can do and all i can think is fuck yeah my body is so strong and capable just the way it is :) 
Keep staying strong! Every day is a new step into loving yourself :)

So earlier this summer I wore a crop top for the first time EVER, and I think I have the tumblr community solely to thank for this. I follow a lot of body positive blogs (including this one!) and it&#8217;s so nice seeing women of all different shapes and sizes rocking all sorts of outfits and looking cute and fierce doing so! It has motivated me to look at my body in a more positive light. I even bought another crop top to wear before fall hits! Yeah, I am trying to lose a bit of weight, and I also have days where I look at my body and I&#8217;m like &#8220;ughhhh&#8221; (who doesn&#8217;t?). But I also am trying to like and enjoy my body for what it is right now, and admire it for what it can do. That&#8217;s probably one of my favorite things about working out; each day I get a little stronger, I can run a little farther, I can go a little longer, and I&#8217;m like &#8220;Yooooo, my body&#8217;s pretty amazing actually&#8221; :)
