It's been a hot minute

Hey there beautiful!

Just wanted to pop in (casually after 4 years, nbd) and say hello. A lot has happened in these past four years. Some good, some bad. But, I'm back and I'm going to try and keep up with this blog. Let me officially introduce myself. I'm Samantha. I'm twenty five, about to be twenty six in March. I work full time in a real estate office, and I'm obsessed with fashion, make up, star wars and being my best self I can be. My one goal in life is to make others happy (and myself of course too). Whether it be doing their make up for a night out, or sitting them down in a moment of sadness and letting them know they will be okay. So, this is going to be quick update, but like I said, I will be back. But for now, hi, nice to meet you and let's chat. 

Love yourself, I dare you.

Fat Acceptance? Never heard of it.

I feel like this is an issue that needs to be addressed. I'm a firm believer in fat acceptance, even though there's not much of it out there. I feel like the fact that overweight people get made of fun daily, is overlooked. I wanna change that. I wanna be the one to stand against bullying of overweight people. If racism is frowned upon, why isn't bullying? It all hurts the same. I can't count how many times I've been laughed at, made fun, put notes on my back, yelled at from a distance hurtful names. But those words and actions, have made me who I am today. I decided to look past those comments and become the bigger person. No pun intended ;) Yeah, I am fat, but I'm not disgusting, I'm not lazy, I'm not unhealthy, and no I don't sit on my couch all day and eat donuts. These are all stereotypes of fat people, unfortunately. It's time to do something about the cruel words being sad about those who are overweight. We were raised that "fat is bad". Most monsters, evil people, bad guys on television and movies are overweight and ugly. Little mermaid? Ursula is fat. Spongebob? Mrs Puff is fat. Star wars? Jabba the Hut is fat. I could go on and on. If I could have one wish, it would for everyone to look past what's on the outside and get to know a person before they judge them. Ladies, if you're overweight, a little chunky, skinny, have that "ten pounds to lose", or if you're obese, love yourself; I dare you.

Love yourself, I dare you.

I have a couple words of advice to those who feel like they need that little push in their life. I challenge you, once a day to look at yourself in the mirror with not a drop of make up on, and absolutely no clothes on, and tell yourself "you're beautiful." Notice every thing your gorgeous self has to offer. Every freckle, every laugh line, every wrinkle, every curve, and every birthmark. There is no reason why any girl should not feel beautiful at any given moment of every day. You don't need ten pounds of make up to have confidence for the day. You're naturally beautiful, so embrace it. Stop focusing on the negative, stop remembering that one time in second grade when some little boy called you ugly, or when your ex boyfriend said you look better with make up on, and rise above all the negativity. If you keep looking in the rear view mirror, you're eventually going to get in a wreck. So look forward, and focus on that road to confidence. Accept the challenge, and love yourself. I dare you.
