I am privileged and happy to announce one of the collaborations that I have been working on. Over the past few months I have been involved in the —Feel More Better, “Not PhotoShopped” campaign. At Feel More Better, Eva and Seth are trying to make the world a happier place for both women and girls by promoting a healthy self image. It is important that we love ourselves for who we are not the person that society dictates that we should be. As a teenager, it was hard to grasp my mind around the message that the media continually promotes regarding the portrayal of celebrities, as flawless individuals. For a good portion of my life, I truly believed that they were naturally, perfect and amazing. I have never been the slimmest girl on the block and throughout my teenage years, I thought that there was something wrong with me. I was always striving to be “smaller” & “skinnier” but no matter how healthy I ate or how many hours I exercised, I was never going to be as skinny as the model on the cover of Shape. The blood line and gene pool that I inherited, does not allow this look. As I got older, I learned to love my body. Everyone has their flaws but that is just a small part of the person that you are. If you just focus & pay attention on your imperfections, then you will never truly be content in your own skin. Learn to appreciate and celebrate the special and unique characteristics that you have been blessed with. I support the Feel More Better campaign because I believe in what they stand for. Visit the “Feel More Better” website and find out how you can support this cause too. Become a member of this encouraging campaign and sport your own gear around town.
I have a “Not Photoshopped” shirt (like mine) that I will be giving away today. Please leave a comment below and your thoughts on the campaign. Be sure to include your email.
