In the words of queen @lizzobeeating : ‘Scuse me while I feel myself 🎶 . . I made myself actually go to the gym for the first time today (after signing up 3 months ago lolz) and I AM FEELING PROUD. 👊👊👊 (Also excuse the mess behind me but as you can see I have not straightened up in a good long while 🤷🏻♀️). . . I’ve always been self conscious about my size and my lack of athletic ability and the fact that when I run on a treadmill it sounds like that big stampede from The Lion King. But I’m at this point in my life where I’m *CHOOSING* to care less and less about what other people’s opinions of me might be and solely focus on myself and my own opinions. And today, I wanted to run indoors and listen to my music and enjoy the membership I’ve been paying for for the last few months. I was sweaty and my face was red and I was looking around at everyone else in that gym and I suddenly realized that I do not give one single fork (shoutout to all of my fellow The Good Place fans) about what these people think of me. So I think I’ll keep running on the treadmill there. And I’ll keep reminding myself that I’m a mother forking queen who deserves to live her life exactly the way she wants to live it. *cue Lizzo on repeat for the next three hours* 👑

This moment inspired me to love myself! I had the greatest time ever. @lizzobeeating is my biggest inspiration! She is so beautiful and sooooo darn talented. She inspires me to be myself regardless of who’s watching. I’ve never loved myself more than I do now after listening to her music for a while. This was hands down my all time favorite concert. She performed like she was performing st the Grammys! Ughh I just love her! #lizzo#lizzobeeating#lizzoisqueen#denvercolorado
Omg THIS. Whether it’s being fat, being a woman, being a loud feminist, having an opinion, etc., I feel like I’m constantly being told to take up less space. ❤️ I didn’t realize how much this message was ingrained in me until I realized that I was carrying out my life in a way that reduced my space and minimized my existence. 🛑 I would be late to events so I wouldn’t have to say hi to anyone, so I could sneak in the back and be a part of the shadows. 🛑 Every time someone approached me at a conference recently and commented on my success, I felt like they were calling me out instead of congratulating me. I wanted to shrink every time they said something. “Maybe I shouldn’t want to win awards...” was a thought that actually ran through my head. 🛑 STOP. Am I shy or am I uncomfortable with taking up space? 🛑 When I’m feeling confident, collected, and ready, I see each room as an opportunity to create change. To use my voice to create empathy for others who have a shared lived experience but are not there to advocate for themselves. 🛑 It’s exhausting sometimes, and I internalize the looks of frustration, exhaust, and irritation as they have to listen to me say just one more thing about potential change. I hear and see “take up less space.” 🛑 But I fought to be at this table, so I’m going to do my damn best to feel as if I deserve this space and that I can soak in all it’s glory. I’m learning more about the balancing act of knowing when the right TIME is to claim my power at the table, but it’s a journey. 🛑 remember: Lizzo would want for me to just be a damn queen the whole time 👑 . . . . . . . #whatwomenwant#whatwomencreate#whatwomxnwant#standproud#bewhoyouwanttobe#bewhoyouare#lizzo#lizzobeating#lizzoisqueen#lizzoinspired#bodypositivity#fatpositivity#takeupspace#beloud#bebig#bebold#beyourself#beaqueen#loveyourself#growth#feminism#feminismmemes#intersectionalfeminism#female
✨Flashback to S1E19 - Reflecting on Season 1✨ This is actually one of my favorite episodes. AJ reveals that she learned what a DM is from Lizzo and the story is hilarious. If you’re looking for a fun distraction episode that doesn’t delve too deep (well, we always go a little deep, we can’t help it), but this episode goes a little less deep. It’s a “surface level” episode for us and is a lot of fun. And now I’m going to go back and listen again just to hear AJ admit how social media un-savvy she is 😂👌🏻
You know what's funny? I was listening to this song today and I got those shivers. You know the shivers... the spirit shivers. Meaning you know the message is true and it's the holy ghost telling you something. I haven't felt it since leaving the church. But you know what I was feeling with this song!? That it was a powerful anthem for women. To love yourself. To be a boss woman. To demand respect. So I got the truth shivers down my spine. I don't need some old man to tell me what the truth is. . . #lizzo#exmormon#exlds#theholyghost#mormonstories#lizzoisqueen#goddess#cesletter
ACL day 3 was hands down my favorite. Third Eye Blind, Lizzo with the most insane crowd, and Mumford and Sons rocking it as per usual with some very special guests. A big thank you to @cristinawaugh and Adam for hanging with us this weekend!
