How we take care of ourselves inside and out matters.

I hate to say it.

When we treat our body with dignity, we feel dignified - and there’s this intoxicating energy that comes with it that even makes our family feel good too.

If doing something or wearing something helps me feel strong and confident, I WANNA DO WAY MORE A THAT.

And whatever makes me feel like hiding when the doorbell rings, I WANNA DO WAY LESS A THAT.

This isn’t about meeting cultural beauty standards. This is about taking the time and effort to do that things that make us feel strong and confident. Some women feel boss in sporty clothes. Some in a dresses. Some in shredded jeans, some in leather. Some in all natural, locally sourced cotton blends. Some with little to no makeup, some looking like they took a Tammy Faye Baker online makeup tutorial.

It’s whatever lights you up!

Taking care of ourselves shouldn’t be considered self-care as if it’s a luxury - it should be self-maintenance - things we must do to live long, healthy, confident lives.

Are you engaged in self-care or self-sabotage? Are you standing tall and proud … or hiding?

If all it takes is a little lip gloss, then girl - put it on! And I don’t care if you got no place to go!

It matters.
