How often do we look at ourselves in the mirror and pick ourselves apart, not just physically but mentally as well?
My skin is wrinkled, my hair is dull, my clothes don't fit, I need to loose weight or I wish I was fuller in places. I need to drink more water, I need to cut down on what I eat, I need to exercise more.... I need to, I need to, I need to....
It's exhausting and not to mention detrimental to your mental health. Society and social media imply we need to be a certain way to be happy, which may be true in some cases but what happens if we begin our day being thankful for the body & mind we have now whilst working towards feeling like our best selves?
A body that has perhaps given life, survived illness, carried you through all the seasons of your story and experienced a beautiful life.
If you love various amounts of exercise and eating 100% nourishing beautiful foods and have the resources to fund skincare, nutritional supplements & wellness classes then this lifestyle may be easily achievable. But perhaps only 1 or 2 of these options are attainable for you. Maybe its a starting goal to drink more water or walk to the corner and back twice a week?
You are more then the shape of your body- It does not determine if you are kind, caring, loving or smart. It also does not define your success or failure. You are so much more - the small moments you cultivate, the friendships & relationships you nourish, the kindness you show strangers, the personal growth you do silently and the beliefs you hold within yourself.
You are YOU and clothing is made to fit your body, not the other way around. It is SO important to wear what you love and what makes you feel good no matter your age or body shape and type.
We aim to help our community to feel good in what they leave our store with, It may be a bag full of fabulous items, A good laugh at our cheesy impromptu dance moves or advice on what to put with that favourite outfit to change it up and make it feel special again. We love when you share your days & stories with us - Getting to know your community is a huge part of small town living & we want to extend that to our online community as well.
Much Love, The Willow & Fli Girls.
