My favorite part about this photo : is the little girl passing by behind me. She was holding her supporting fathers's hand. She was holding up her sign, that was a computer paper with the words "Belive Women!!!" scribbled in crayon. If anything, her sign is a hell of alot more powerful and I hope she knows how tiny and mighty she is. #believemovement
Hi World, 😊 My name is Jessica and I'd like to remind you, that my physical appearance and visual appeal does not minimize or eliminate the existence of the vast emotional depth I carry as a human being. The substance I have is far more expansive than all assets my body tends to distract from. I am an individual with intellectual and spiritual dimensions, tell me that my perspectives are more intriguing than watching me walk by. I want to hear that my words were more impressive and boundless than the curves leading to my thighs. I'm every woman you have ever met in your life, and every woman you havn't. On behalf of every other, it is a privaledge to experience the endless versions of ourselves. The world is always trying to shrink us into catagories we were never meant to, because we are all multidisciplinary's in our own right. Translation : What you see from us, is just the whipcream and cherry on top, to everything else we have to offer. We are always, more. 🍒
A brief analysis and open except from my view on how to seperate the ego and soul. And classifying the intentions of the rare individual who has simultaneously mastered the art of being both humble, and confident : I don't think I am otherwordly. It's not a thought up for debate, because I dont think. I simply am. Whether or not it's ever interpreted, you are a knockout of a specimen, as long as you define, carry, and say so on your own terms. I righteously uphold myself to the highest standard in every aspect, because the alternative? Would be to settle into the medicrocrity of being comfortable in remaining average. You determine how others treat and see you by how you do so, to yourself. If you confirm with your reflection, "You are a fucking goddess" - Guess what? You are. If you say "I already am, who I want to be" - you have given power, to the magic in you that waiting to be FELT. The difference between being confident, and being arrogant is simple.Confidence is walking into a room and knowing you ARE an undeniable movement without ever having to compare or compete with anyone. Arrogance, is feeling inferior enough to belittle anyone who they feel is above their level of evolution. But confidence, is not about superiority. It's just, being AWARE that you are a FORCE and utilizing the knowledge to allow others to see it in themselves, to create a chain reaction of authentic influence. I'm not out of your league. I'm entirely in my own. Not to be compared to anyone. She is her. I am myself. I'm not too much for you. I'm enough for me. I don't lose people, people lose me. I'm not "extra". I'm taking up space here, and making room for everyone else to be here too.
(Swipe right!) You have the whole ass universe in your favor, strategtically aligning your purpose. You have a force greater than you know, looking at you right now and saying, " I got you". Trust that. You're the bomb. You're full of dimensions. You're an untouchavle arrangement of atoms. You're a multifaceted masterpiece, even while you're still growing. You're the fucking cherry on top with a beating heart. Believe it. When you feel small, I want you to know there's someone like me, who wants to see your success and happiness as much as their own. Ps. THANK YOU to @museumiadventure for the @29rooms tix hookup 💜
Knowing who you are, scares the fuck of people. It's like, you've got NERVE, to be secure in the enormity of your being. I had a family member who hadn't seen me in years, greet me with, "You look alot bigger, those thighs!" To which I said, "No. I'm growing into womanhood and my body is saying YES to it. My figure is fuller, curvier, and all the more voluptuous." Before all the men who ever belittled me in my life, my father was the first to see my confidence, feel intimidated, and intended to manipute me into believing my value shouldn't be recognized. He"ll see me taking a photo, laugh obnoxiously and say, "You think you're cute? Get over yourself." To which I reply, " I am cute as fuck." He'll see me, putting on red lipstick, a bodycon fitted dress, and heels for a buisness opportunity or casting in the city. As I'm walking to the door to leave the house, he'll shake his head and say "You look like a prostitute", rather than saying "Good Luck" or "I'm Proud Of You" - to which I ignore. Because already know. And I repeat. Knowing who you are. scares the fuck out of people. They fear you. Beause mnowing your power, means that it cannot ever be taken away. We refuse to allow it.
Purpose fuels me. I have a responsibility with this body, to continue having the nerve to adore my curves without limitations or Shattering boundaries as a thicker than the traditional figured model, allows me to showcase #representation in a way only I can, and will. To be featured on @hercampus #collegefashionweek runway in New York, this #fall2018 among beautifully diverse young woman with a mutual vision, is right where I belong. Tag @hercampusstyle + @hercampus to support 💖👑 #castmecfw 👀 See you @ the show? (Manifesting it into existence, shhh)
No matter what anyone tells you, more is more. Anyone who willingly allows themselves to be small and insists you carry the same lifestyle, is someone you need to run as fast as you can from. Viva la vida, extra.
I want more women to experience a love that doesn't involve suffering first, and being glorified later. And that begins with ourselves. Via @deadpoolmovie 's #believeinyourselfie Museum @industriasuperstudio 👉🏼 Swipe Right!
I'm passionate about 3 major aspects in my life; positivity, power, and progress. Initially, my intimate goal was to inspire. Generally. To touch individuals through who I am and what I do a d curate a legacy that beyond the time I have here in the world. My personal purpose felt that I needed to expand perspectives with more depth, substance, and emotion into everything and everyone around me.Translation, I create impact with the power I currently poccess ; which is as simple and as significant as treating every person I meet with compassion and leaving an impression. I'm learning to love to the sound of my feet walking away from everything that is not meant for me. And with that, heres my new intention ; I hope that leave everyone I meet, better than when I found them. I hope that I can say I made their life happier while I was in it. There are people who've done me wrong, either intentionally or not, that I now realize did me a favor, released me into something greater tbh setting me free, enabled me to evolve. Even the toxic people, ended up being good for me in the long run. I want you to remember me not as I am, but as I aspire to be. And if you knew me a year ago, talk to me and I'll reintroduce you to the latest version of Jessica. I'm a story, a memory, and an experience. I will bring out the best in you, no matter what. Do the same for others.
"They love what you're doing, they just hate that it's you." - I've realized that being your most authentic self comes with both beautiful blessings and negative consequences; in terms of how the world around you absorbs an individual who is conscious. Because when someone is confident, they are untouchable in the sense of never being affected by opinions, because they are secure enough to distinguish someone trying to belittle them for their own false security. But in my experiences, my intention to influence others positively as more so provoked intimidation, its evident that powerful energy can be threatening to anyone who has yet to find that resilience within their own self. There are people in the world who do not want to see you happy, and that should be the bigger motive for smiling as authentically as you can every day. Just like, there are people in the world who you inspire deeply, but they wont admit it. They will never tell you. But just be mindful, it's not you. It's them. Wish them love and keep giving it back.
Rubie Lynn Torres 👼🏼 She has officially made me, an Auntie! And she officially, has her own Instagram! 👉🏼🌸 @msrubielynn 🌸 This lil princess has already came, saw, and conquered. She was born with a condition called gastroschisis, where her small intestine was outside of her stomach. She is currently healing and recovering like a warrior after surgery. But we have made a @gofundme to support my brother and family for medical expenses. The link to support can be found in my bio, as well as hers. Once again, 🌸@msrubielynn 🌸 who loves you unconditionally already. We will be documenting her journey, progress, and sharing her stories through her Instagram. As well as curating it as a safe space for positivity and inspiration. Thank you for all the love. Heres to helping another badass lil babe grow phenomenally into this world.
The Summer 2018 Energy is simple : Whatever you want to do, do it. Whoever you want to be, be it - as long as it is the most untouchable version of yourself concievable. If you're not there yet, you have a mission : get there.
🍒 So many photos from @thepintshop to choose from and upload. But, for now - I'll leave this here and delete it later. Because I'm exhausted of having grown adults tell me what I can and can't do with myself, my body, and my life. What I should and shouldn't be or do. How I am not allowed to behave or am forbidden to do anything other than their precisely specific expectations of what a young intellectual woman with an exuberantly glorious future ahead of her, is designed to conform to by societies mindless standards. The modern successful woman is - whoever she desires to be. She isnt defined or limited by expectations, labels, or definitions. She is under no obligation to satisfy the dreams you never chased in your adolescence that she has the audacity to pursue. She doesn't need permission to say yes to the happiness that you refuse to take as your own. She, is wholesome heart, educated mind, resilient spirit, and liberated body as she pleases. And she is here for her, not for you. Don't tone down who you are in all of your infinite dimensions.
