Body Image


I’ve been a little nervous to put this up, but I have to speak my peace after being inspired by a recent event where I was surrounded by girls bragging about their dangerous diets in order to become thin. These are my thoughts on the beauty revolution.

  • It’s okay to be who you are. You don’t HAVE to be anything to be beautiful. You don’t NEED to change. Changing won’t make you happy. Happiness starts from the inside out.
  • Change if you want, change is good, we are our own canvas. Just make sure it’s on YOUR terms, it’s for YOU, not because you think other people will like you more or other people will think you are beautiful, do it because YOU think it’d be a good change or more flattering. Just be safe and healthy and love yourself every step of the way.
  • You CAN be over-weight and be healthy.
  • We come in all shapes and sizes, there is no perfect.
  • Love every imperfection, if you can open your eyes to all that you are, have faith that others will too. Someone WILL love the parts of you that are imperfect.

Love yourself, be happy, you deserve it, join the revolution

Love, annieelainey

Long Hard Road


This song was sent to me by Awilda Castro, and she wanted me to share it with all of you:

Long Hard Road by Sade

There’s a long hard road ahead

But a voice inside me said

You know there’s something that you need to know
It’s gonna be alright
Said there’s something that you need to know
It’s gonna be alright

And when in this life, in this life
When I can only turn my chin
I know it’s gonna be alright

When this big old town is closing in
And I have lost again here
I could stay but I’ll keep moving on
Here I could stay but I’ll keep moving on

Could be I won’t be wrong
There’s a long hard road ahead

But a voice inside me said
Said there’s something that you need to know
It’s gonna be alright
Said there’s something that you need to know

It’s gonna be alright
