Liliana created this amazing tag that’s all about self love and body positivity! She tagged me to take part, and I totally forgot until I saw Ella‘s post about it a few days ago! So sorry it took me a while Lil, but let’s get into this tag!!
One feature you love about yourself
I think I’ve mentioned this before, but for a physical feature, I would say my hands. They’re obviously super useful. But also, they just seem delicate and pretty, kind of a weird statement to make about hands, but that’s how I feel about mine 😀
One feature you wish/wished you could change that you are trying to accept or have accepted?
My teeth. They’re fairly even, but some are crowded. However they’re still symmetrical funnily enough, just two are slightly more forward than everything else. For the longest time, I was self conscious of it. But as time went on, I grew to accept it. Now, it’s just my smile, crazy teeth and all.
Have you ever thought of getting surgery to change you imperfections?
I’ve considered laser eye surgery, but the more I learn about it, the less eager I am. But I would love to correct my vision. That’s about the only surgery I would consider doing.
One of your main role models for body positivity?
Honestly, I don’t know. I don’t know if I have a role model specifically for body positivity. In general, I look up to Amy Poehler and Emma Watson for general empowerment and positivity 🙂
Has a family member or friend ever put you down about your physical appearance? If so what for?
Not really a family member of friend. I do remember in middle/high school, comments that bugged me, but they were said by randoms around that I didn’t really have a personal relationship with. I remember they were related to acne, as I had really bad skin in middle school. I got the obligatory comments about my glasses. I got called ‘shorty’ a lot, which is more of a fact than a snarky comment.
Something you love about your fashion sense or style?
It’s comfortable? I don’t know, I tend to wear what I want. If it’s comfortable and makes me feel good, then I’ll wear it.
Why is your body a great place to be?
I mean, it could be better. I still mean to look after it better and commit to a healthier lifestyle, or at least work out more. But in general, it’s a great place to be cause I’m happy in it and I’m taking (fairly) good care of it.
Lil also added in a bit at the bottom where she asks to include “photo of yourself when you felt the most confident”. I’ve chosen the photo of me floating in a pool in Taveuni during my honeymoon. Why this one? Well, it was the first time I wore a two piece, and also I just love this photo 😀
As for nominations, I like to open it up to everyone. These questions are great to reflect on and even if you don’t make a post about it, I encourage you to think on these questions 🙂
