Beauty Beyond Size

The greatest gift you could ever have is knowing your Worth, Power, Intelligence, Strength and Weakness. -

Eleshia Simms-Harris

As I wrote each word down tears began to fall. I had finally let it all go; twenty-eight words to be exact. And with those twenty-eight words, crippled my growth.

As my mother would say " sticks and stones may break your bones but words will never hurt".

Well I'm not sure how she did it but it left some scars on me. I had lost sight of my purpose by allowing people's words or labels to consumed my space. So to me, words bruised deeper and last longer.

But as I reflected over the past year, I set a goal to take ownership of those words that would described my past, present and future. I was finished with labels and words that was bound to my personality.

These words are a reminder that I survived everything meant to destroy me.

I am proud of my body and curves. I stand with WOMEN across the world as I share this visual piece in celebration of #bodypositivemovement
