for this year, I only have one resolution, but it's quite a big one (for me, anyways) that'll need a lot of work. I decided that I need more positivity in my life, something I keep struggling with every now and then. Positivity in general, but very specificly also body positivity.
I've not been happy with my body for a long time. Of course, there are things I can do to improve my appearance, like eating healthy and working out regularly, which I took up again.
But there's also a lot that I need to accept, because hating your body will defenitively not make you happy on the long shot. I'm sad to admitt that loving myself still gives me a hard time and also keeps me from doing a lot of things that would life make more worth living. For example, not wearing a certain garment, because the fashion industry tells me I need to lose like 20 kg first to "look good/acceptable" in said garment. But I'm really tired of being manipulated by some old male CEO of some fashion or beatuy related enterprise. So long story short, I decided not to give any fucks about what my scale or some "fashion magazine" tells me and just put on that adorable outfit I have in mind.
I did this yesterday, when I put on these boots for the first time:
They're absolutely gorgeous laced-up overknee boots and I've always thought I couldn't possibly wear them because my legs are too fat. But once I've put them on, I was surprised to see how they actually optically elongate my calves rather than make them look even fatter, and the best part of all, wearing these boots really pushed my self-condifdence. It's been quite some time since I've been as pleased with my apperance (^.^)
