“I really wish a confident size 32 woman didn’t evoke amazement, it needs to just be normal.” – Me
There has been some blogger involvement requested by an organisation that I have been behind and have been following from the start, as soon as I heard about this I was very excited about getting involved and getting the word out.
As bloggers we have been asked to write a bit about the times we feel most confident, I feel like this is a great opportunity for my readers to learn a little bit about me and for me to learn some about the other bloggers taking part. If you want to see more of the contributions to this blog challenge look for the #plusconfidence2014 hastag.
I love posting pictures of myself on my blog, I love pushing fashion boundaries and wearing what that society says a fat girl cant wear, I love that women can see these images and feel my confidence and I have had enough feedback through my blog to know that I am making a small impact and making people reevaluate the ideas that have been forced on them that tells them that they should only be wearing this and that.
My blog is a space for me to express myself however I please and if I want to show my fat body in a crop top or a super tight dress that is exactly what I am going to do. I receive messages from girls and women who have come across my blog and are amazed at my confidence but I really wish a confident size 32 woman didn’t evoke amazement, it needs to just be normal.
Another thing that I feel gives me confidence is knowing that I am a nice person. I do my best to be a person I can be proud of. what my body looks like does not define the person that I am. I am confident in my decisions, I am confident that I am a good friend, I am confident that I can say without bending the truth that behind all the clothes and makeup I am the person that I want to be and that gives me more confidence than anything else.
This confidence post could not have come at a better time as I am at my most confident right now, I don’t mean today, I mean at this particular time of my life. I am 29 years old, I have been a lot bigger than I am now and I have also been smaller than I am now and I have discovered that no matter what size I am there will always be something that challenges my confidence. Acceptance has been a massive deal for me. I am very content in the body that I am in.
I believe that even if you are on a journey to change yourself you can still enjoy life and be confident in yourself while on your way to what you are trying to achieve.
I don’t believe in hiding away or trying to make yourself invisible until you are your perfect you, I think being at peace with who you are makes you perfect for you.
I am going to leave you with the images that I have submitted to the Plus Confidence campaign – These three images sprung to mind when I was asked for images of my personal confidence and I will explain why..
“Plus Confidence, is working on creating an explosive, eye opening, breath taking art exhibition around body confidence. The artwork will be of plus size women not the U.K average size, creating high glossy images.”
