Mid week reminder for all of us.

When you guys get a moment, please go hop on 1thatgotawayy's post from today. I know Brene Brown’s work is meaningful to many. I recognize how powerfully her perspectives on shame and resiliency can resonate, as well as how relatable and painfully applicable her research is for those who struggle with self-worth. I’ve read all of her books, highlighted many of the pages, and been brought to tears multiple times by the way she uncoils the experience of shame. There’s no doubt that there’s enormous healing to receive through her words – but there are undeniable blind spots to her work that cannot be ignored. Her history of upholding diet culture and openly pathologizing fat bodies aside, there is a marked lack of social context and recognition around power dynamics relating to race, ability, class, gender, and sexuality in her books – one that should severely call into question the frequency and fervency with which her research is leveraged as a “philosophical framework” for social justice. Yes, no researcher is perfect and sure, I can agree that her books are a valuable first step in de-stigmatizing conversations around mental health – but we have to be more critical about the ways in which her perspective is shaped through the lens of whiteness and therefore lends itself to “don’t fight hate with hate” and “all lives matter” horseshit arguments. Do I think this is Brown’s intention? No – well at least I hope not. But I do think that her failure to forefront intersectionality makes her work vulnerable to being exploited by white feminists looking to shore up their perspectives – which, as 1thatgotawayy so gracefully articulated in her post today, fuels the gas-lighting and tone-policing of POC. It’s our responsibility as white women to question and critique the way we’re so quick to exalt and uphold white perspectives on “what’s right” – let alone white perspectives on “how to approach social justice.” Without doing so, we only dig ourselves further into our ancestral hole of white supremacy. Without doing so, we only maintain that all lives, in fact, DO NOT matter – only our lives, our WHITE lives, whites perspectives, and white authority do.

Transformation is going from self hate to self love. When you love the body you are in, you begin to love your mind as well. Transformation is when you don’t let the negativity around you affect how you take care of yourself. Working out again has brought me more clarity. It has brought me the strength that I lost almost 2 years ago. I am so proud of the woman I am becoming because I have gone through hell to become her. #strength #transformationtuesday #fitmom #willpower #positivevibes #strongwoman #loveyourself #lovetheprocess #fitfam #determination #goals #icaniwill #momlife #workout #nobodyshame #here #fitness #pregnancy #fitnessjourney #passion #progress

I haven't been feeling amazing, or sexy, or anything lately. So I took today to do some fancy makeup and just feel pretty. When all else fails go back to the basics, colors make me happy and help me fight depression. <3 #bodypositive #selflove #allbodiesaregoodbodies #nobodyshame #fatactivism #bopo #bodyposi #bodylove #imperfect #fatpeople #bopowarrior #fatbabe #fatpositive #radicalbodylove #nobodyshamecampaign #bodyloveforall #bodylove4all #Plussize #fatgirlscan #invisibledisability #mom #fighter #staystrong #disabled #mentalhealth #mentalillness #disability #prettyisasprettydoes #curvygirl

5.22.18 | mind | body | soul | feeling defeated lately. I was on track and doing so well and now that I need to be on it even more I find myself being more and more easy on my food intake. which in turn is making my workouts tougher by feeling bloated and heavy. I took this pic today so that I could remember how far I’ve come, but also how far I have to go. I can’t go easy now just because I’m back to my smallest size - NOW Is the time to push through and fight for more! . . . #mafitness #mafattofit #letsmakemagreatagain #goals #fitnessjourney #nobodyshame #hardwork #daybyday #weightlossjourney #OT #proud #ineedthis #goals #fightforit #sweat #readyformore #orangetheory #otf #otfnation #keepburning #recovery #winning #justkeepsweating #journey #splatpoints #improvement #2018goals #doyourbestandforgettherest #turning30 #199goals #2018imcomingforyou
