I put pressure on myself to be perfect. Do you? . 💫 Telling myself that I’m not doing enough is a constant. It has been since I was a kid. Over and over again, I’ve had to re-learn how to be compassionate to myself. How to be kinder. . 💫 Here’s the long and short of it: perfect is just a concept. One person’s definition of perfect is not the same as another’s. In other words, perfect doesn’t exist. . 💫 It’s okay to be where you are. It’s okay to take breaks. It’s okay to recharge. We are all moving forward at our own pace. . 💫 How do you feel about perfection?
People don’t care about the way your body looks. Really! Do you wanna know why? 🔍 Because what they really care about is what THEIR bodies look. Yep, read that again. 🤷🏻♀️ We’ve given so much power to thinness because we believe that other people want that for us. Not knowing that what they truly want is to have a stronger connection with us regardless of whether our body is slim, short, fat, tall, white, black, brown or blue. It doesn’t matter. 💛💚🖤💙 Just like you worry about your body looking a certain way to others. They worry about the way their bodies look to others. So how about we all start looking inwardly and giving a flying F about an idea that’s more and more obsolete? 🤩 All bodies matter! You matter. Your body matters. Stop giving your power to something that’s unimportant to others, if that’s your motivation. Start giving power to what's important to you. You got this! Cinthia
Four years ago, every single activity, responsibility, hobby, and interest I had in my life orbited around food and body. Specifically, wrangling my body into submission. • Now, I’m happy to share a bit of my journey to learn photography - an interest completely unrelated to my work in the wellness industry. Girlfriend, pickup SOMETHING and add it to your life simply because it makes you feel good. Not because it slims you down, makes you a better mom, teaches you how to advance your career, etc. Don’t WAIT to have some slice of good old fashion fun in your life.
For Pride Month, I wanted to do something I never did before - wear makeup. Previously, I've worn it for high school theater productions and as a model but it's usually no more than foundation so the idea of exploring other possibilities was definitely different and out of my comfort zone. Growing up I was never curious about it. In fact, my interest started recently after seeing fellow bloggers/influencers like @bearnamedtroy, @marquimode, and @franknthecity and @_adydelvalle use it to express one's individuality, various moods and feelings and to look FIERCE!!!! I always assumed people used makeup only to cover blemishes, smooth skin and accentuate parts of their bodies they didn't like. But, I admit I was naive and wrong. It's so EMPOWERING to see people expressing themselves how they see fit regardless of what the world says. I salute anyone who lives in their truth. . . . . . . Even though it's not something I would do every day, I am very open-minded and always willing to try new experiences so here we are. Makeup by @themuanoelle. She slayed!!! I am serving Gay Aunty Vibes lol...BTW, these are my lashes - they aren't fake. And that last pic, I was tipsy and feeling myself and my makeup. Lol... . . . . . Please be positive, no negativity. If you dislike it, please keep comments to yourself. Thank you. Happy Pride!!!

I N S T A T A U G L I C H ist mein Lifestyle irgendwie kein bisschen! Ich wohne mit dem Gatten in einem halb renoviertem altem Haus- mit dem Hashtag Interiorstyle kann ich schonmal nicht wirklich glänzen! Ich trage selten bis gar keine Markenklamotten - #fashion ist hier also eher so auf KIK- und H&M- Niveau. Noch habe ich stets den perfekten Look - schaut euch nur meinen Ansatz an😅! Heute hatte ich viel Zeit, über einen neuen- wirklich klugen Post nachzudenken. Doch am Ende dieses heutigen Tages muss ich nun feststellen, dass ich eben ganz genau das bin- ein Normalo- der kein hochfrequentiertes Leben hat und eben manchmal auch ein träger kleiner ungestylter (gestrandeter) Wal ist (keine Panik, ich finde Wale sind majestätische Tiere). Ich muss irgendwie feststellen, dass hier in meinem Feed ne Menge Bilder von mir sind, wo ich mich aufgebrezelt habe- oder über dessen Umsetzung ich auch ne Weile nachgedacht habe. Heute möchte ich das wieder gut machen- ihr bekommt heute von mir den ultimativen Schnappschuss aus meiner Situation- unschwer an der Katze zu erkennen (denn es ist schier unmöglich, ihren Willen zu bezwingen- meist habe ich nur ihr Ärschchen in der Linse). Dieser Post ist ein Versuch, euch nur noch mal daran zu erinnern, dass es ok ist, kein medial glänzendes Leben zu führen. Ihr müsst keine super schick angerichteten Bowls essen, es geht auch mal ein geschmiertes Brot im Stehen, es muss auch nicht immer eine schicke luftige bohemian Tunika eueren hübschen Leib zieren- ein altes altes, ausgeleiertes Shirt ist doch meist am bequemsten. Stresst euch nicht wenn der Tisch farblich nicht mehr ins Konzept zur Lampe oder Kommode passt- sicherlich verdankt ihr ihm gute Dienste und schließlich hat er ja auch mal Geld gekostet. Instagram weckt leider auch verdammt viel Neid und setzt unterbewusst unter Druck. Ein ehrlicher Einblick in mein Normalo Life schadet daher vielleicht nicht. #nobodyshame#normal#bodypositive#perfektunperfekt
Another from my archive. Doctors cannot diagnose you by looking at you—remember this. And random people sure as hell can’t either. (And why is your health their business to begin with?! They don’t go around trying to diagnose sick thin people?!)

Lately I worry a lot more about my #body and #shape than I used to do in the past. I don't really feel #beautiful or #attractive. It's a fact, it's not about being right or wrong. I know I'm not in a very good shape and I know I have to find an activity that I like and that I want to practice. But still I like wearing a #bikini , going to the #beach and #swim. I am not super #confident but at least I am #strong enough and #brave enough to do it. I know many people especially #girls don't want to be in a swimsuit or even go to the sea because they're too afraid of other's people judgement. It shouldn't be like that, as long as we are aware of what is the limit between #healty and #unhealthy. So this is me with the #turquoise sea of #premantura ! ❤🙌☀🌊 #nobodyshame
Hace poco me he vuelto a poner frente a la atenta mirada de @cylfotografos , y oye ... parece que no se nos da nada mal no ? El vestido es de una tienda local de Bilbao ... no hay link . Pero seguro que lo encontráis en la vuestra ! 💋
I’ll never take my body confidence for granted as long as I live. I lived my whole adult life into my early 30s never wearing a sleeveless top because I was so ashamed of my shoulder stretch marks even though I went on holiday in very warm places loads, I was always covered up. • When I was a teenager it was like a switch was flipped when I developed those stretch marks & it was like ‘I CAN’T wear sleeveless tops/dresses etc’. I used to think sometimes ‘I really wish I could wear sleeveless tops’ as if there was some bit of criminal legislation preventing me from doing it!!!!! I just 100% ‘knew’ in my head that I ‘couldn’t’ & that was that...I never did for the best part of 20 years 🤦🏼♀️🤦🏼♀️🤦🏼♀️ • Shame-filled thoughts about yourself are soooooooo awful & so limiting & I didn’t realise just how much my body shame affected my life in so many ways because day to day I was a happy person & I managed to bury my shame & not address it but I realise now it did affect me even more than I knew. • Every single one of us can change our thinking & how we feel about ourselves. ❤️❤️❤️We only live once & there is zero benefit from giving yourself a lot of shit & limiting your life & opportunities for fun & adventure by thinking you can’t do certain things. • SO LET THOSE ARMS GO FREE THIS SUMMER & ANY & ALL OTHER BITS YOU MAY HAVE A HANG UP ABOUT & FOCUS ON HAVING A GOOD TIME & NOT WHAT RANDOM STRANGERS MAY OR MAY NOT BE THINKING ABOUT YOUR BODY. HAVE FUN & BE FREE 💃💁🏼♀️🎉 • Massive love & hugs to you all 💕❤️😘
Eating healthy is so hard.. being starving all the time 🤣🤣🤣 just kidding!

Bringing this back for #transformationtuesday • no one’s real life looks like their Instagram, no one’s life is posed/edited/smiley/visually pleasing all the time. And I mean thank God, right? “Perfect” is so passé. (I’ve tagged some of my fav instas that brighten my day💕)
