I am a firm believer that what you give out is what you will receive. Who you are is what you will attract. Energy is neither created nor destroyed but rather it transforms from one thing to the next. So that means we are in a constant state of reciprocity. This is one of the greatest reasons why loving yourself and being confident in who you are is so important. It allows you to attract the right energy and the right people into your life. And although self-love is in no way an easy journey, you will find that even along the way the world begins to open up to you in a way that you never could have imagined. That love and positivity that you feel about yourself is contagious and it will transfer to the next person and the next person and so on. But it has to start with you!
I found this mural while driving in downtown Los Angeles and I just knew it was perfect for this look. Aside from the colors matching so well with my outfit, the hearts symbolized much more than just a cute backdrop. I felt like it was fate. I know that sounds a little dramatic but I believe that signs come in small forms. I have not always been comfortable in my skin and trust me I still have my moments. However, by taking a leap of faith with starting this blog and showcasing myself as a plus size woman in a positive & stylish way, I have received SO much love in return. I may have inspired some of you but that energy that you have given me has inspired and uplifted me ten fold. Hence my earlier point, what you exude will not only transfer to the next person but it always has a way of circling back around to its origin. Let’s all take a moment to give love to not only others but ourselves too. Your life will change for the better.
