Im doing this thing where I am actually exercising in a healthy way that’s not geared towards image goals or self harm, and it’s like the greatest thing. I’m relieving stress, working towards a healthy goal (benefit 5k for my cousin’s academic org), not having social anxiety at the gym, not shaming others, and not worrying about how clothes do or do not fit. I know it might be fleeting, but all health positive journeys are worth it.

I didn’t think it was possible for me to be in an exercise setting and feel good. But it is. And that’s liberating for me. I hesitate to share this with people in my life because they might confuse this with wanting to lose weight or finally giving in. But it’s not. I am still learning to love myself for who and what I am.

I am a woman, an advocate, a thinker, a dancer, an activist, a singer, an athlete, a partner, an actress, a student, a lover, a sister, a bilingual, a cousin, a friend, and a fat girl to say the least. I am many things. Thin just isn’t one of them.

WHERE CAN I SHIP SUPPLIES TO FERGUSON?,

puravidaparatodas:

i have a bunch of stuff that i want to send to protesters in ferguson, but i can’t seem to find a specific address to send them to. what i have is a collection of clean up and rain related supplies (gloves, trash bags, ponchos, and umbrellas). is there anyone in ferguson who can receive these? or anybody who knows anybody who can receive these?

if you don’t have an answer for me, please please please reblog! i want to ship this stuff ASAP!

okay so i’ve done a bit of research and i found out that the greater st mark’s family church has been involved in the protests and also hosted a press conference with rev. al sharpton and the mo attorney general. it seems like a good place to send these supplies, but i’m not sure.

PEOPLE IN FERGUSON— would this be a good place to send supplies to? please please please let me know i want to get this stuff sent asap!!
