I have many names: woman, brown, Latina, Hispanic, Colombian, fat, immigrant, minority. Take away any of these, and I am no longer me. In my journey of learning to connect with my body, i’ve realized that living in a society where we are considered “the other”, can make the ride a lot more confusing. How to accept our body, love the color of my skin, connect with my culture, appreciate diversity, embrace our differences, when the majority does not? The answer is: we just do. Some days it is easier than others, AND that’s ok. If for whatever reason you are “the other”... I see you, I hear you. I have many names, but the most important one is the one I give my self every day: Melissa. What is you name? ••••••••••👋🏼💪🏼👊🏼🦄•••••••••••• Tengo muchos nombres: mujer, mestiza, Latina, Hispana, Colombiana , gorda, inmigrante, minoría. Quita cualquiera de estos, y ya no soy yo. En mi viaje de aprender a conectarme con mi cuerpo, me di cuenta de que vivir en una sociedad en la que somos considerados "el otro" puede hacer que el viaje sea mucho más confuso. ¿Cómo aceptar nuestro cuerpo, amar el color de mi piel, conectarme con mi cultura, apreciar la diversidad, admirar nuestras diferencias, cuando la mayoría no lo hace? La respuesta es: simplemente lo hacemos. Algunos días es más fácil que otros, Y está bien. Si por alguna razón eres "el otro" ... te veo, te escucho. Tengo muchos nombres, pero el más importante es el que me doy todos los días: Melissa. Cual es tu nombre? #bodypositive #bodylove #embrace #connect #love #fat #immigrant #latina #hispanic #spanish #brown #brownwomen #minority #theother #amor #amorproprio #haes #intutiveeating #edrecovery #desordenesalimenticios #salud #name #mentalhealth #inmigrante #autoestima #nombre #IamMe
When you realize you ARE the herstory books....a mystery unsolved, the greatest tale ever hidden....the creator of all earthly beings....when the story of Jesus becomes a metaphor of your existence...constantly giving, sacrificing with NOTHING in return....when you are all and all is you....only then....on-l-y then, will you realize you are the REASON for everything. . . . #queendom #her #Creator #Birth #WomYn #omnipotent #cradleoflife #giverofsouls #creation #power #divine #feminine #balance #connection #blackwomen #brownwomen #selfawareness #womenempowerment #changethenarrative #lifegivers #itstartswithyou #allbeing #natural #byusforus

Intentions are EVERYTHING ⚡️ ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Intentions are an empowering and beautiful way to start a new day and a new week. What are your intentions for this morning? For this day? For the week? For the rest of the month and year? As we place intentions behind our actions, we begin to operate from a place inside of us, guiding us and preparing us to embark on what the moment(s) may bring. The more we define and name our intentions, we are able to develop motivation and ownership of our situations. Your intention is YOUR power!!!! 💫 ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• TRY THIS: “Today I will _________ to myself. I create _________that protect my well being and will help me in __________. I align my ___________with my ____________. • • • EX: “Today I reset my commitment to myself. I create boundaries that protect my well being. I align my actions with my beliefs.” •••••••••••••••••••••••• Source: Chani Nicholas, mini excerpt from Sagittarius's Week of December 11th horoscope. @chaninicholas

Don't get caught up going into the New Year without setting goals and refocusing to becoming the best you! Y'all health and fitness goes so far beyond self-image; being unhealthy affects your spiritual health, emotional health, of course physical and bodily health. Strongholds can be manifested from not taking care of and nurturing yourself; such as self-insecurities, health issues, self-image issues, relationship insecurities, depression, anxiety, anger, bitterness, and so many other things. Self love and self care to two vitals that should be at the forefront of each of our mind set, YOU CAN NOT POUR FROM AN EMPTY VESSEL. Pour into you this season. If you are tired of sounding like a record on repeat and ready to take a step toward change, join us as we shift and transform our body, mind, and spirit as well. . . . . #Godismyfoundation #fitmom #fitwife #lifestyle #lifestylechange #weightlossdiary #weightlossgoals #weightlosssuccess #selflove #selfcare #weightlosshelp #fitnesslifestyle #losingweight #weightlossjourney #brownwomen #fitwomen #weightlosstransformation #weightlossprogress #igweightloss #fitnesslife #coach #weightlossresults #weightlossinspiration #gymlife #weightlossmotivation #weightlosscoach #eatclean #queen #melanin #postpartum

If anyone makes you feel like your body isn't enough...walk away. I can't count the number of times I have had to tell someone "my body is not up for discussion" and then leave the room. You're not alone. #bodypositivemovement #bopo #bodypositivity #queer #poc #feminism #brownwomen #femaleempowerment

Photo for the @200women project. Taken during the height of the insanity that was my 2017 - wow, those eyes look like they’ve lost hope. Alhamdulilah, I feel blessed to know it’s possible to come out the other end, stronger. Everybody hurts. It is what we do with that hurt that matters, no? خير، أنشالله

I am taking a huge risk ..making a planner and saying that it is SPECIFICALLY for Black and Brown Women...we are getting more representation and recognition but it’s still a journey more we have to go. I’ve seen and used hundreds of planners but none with our faces on it ..I hope I encourage someone to take a leap of faith in doing something different that’s dear to you..it’s hard and SUPER RISKY but it’s worth a Shot Always 💪🏾💪🏾😍 #gamechanger #goodmorning #goodmorningpost #takearisk #womenempowerment #brownwomen #blackwomen #representationmatters #represent #blackgirlmagic #bebold #bebeautiful #fierce #standout #essence #millionairemindset #focused #determined

Even though our mothers were silenced over their tongue heavy-accented pronunciations, for giving opinions or having values/ beliefs (self), abused, degraded, undervalued, accustomed to discrimination, rejection, compromises, scrutinised under a societal microscope, presumed and assumed statements about their identities yet they made sure their daughters would be forged from fire to become leaders, individuals with abilities that define them more than mere skin, all while carrying the weight of the world on their backs and shackling up their broken hearts behind their dupattas This is to our grandmothers and mothers . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #vscodaily #vsco #instadaily #womenofcolor #strongwomen #spilledink #selfportrait #poetsofig #poetsofindia #writersofinstagram #writersofig #brownwomen
