I am tired and struggling through some growth right now. But I am here. Today I got to do meaningful work that is sacred to me. Today I got to feel the jagged edges of myself and find some new kinds of softness I can lean into. Today I got to communicate my truth in several forms to several people. Today I asked for help. Today I honored the limits of my capacity. Today I recognized my strength and tenacity. Today I turned toward myself and felt my feelings. Today I cried and laughed and swore and loved. Today I remembered that I am my own wisest healer and that body trust is my fucking birthright. #themoonremembers #bodytrust #fatpositive #fatacceptance #traumainformed

Saturday morning reading in bed with @marshallk. Both books were published in 1994, when we were in high school and hadn’t met yet. Marshall is reading ‘Fertile Ground,’ a seminal text on eco-feminism and I’m reading an article about women therapists as outlaws in ‘Feminist Perspectives on Eating Disorders.’ And we have coffee, tea, and a cat in bed with us too. 💜❤️💜

Long week. Office couch nap time. Yawn selfie. Looking at this pic while I write my caption made me yawn again. Heh.

I figured out how to do a #2017bestnine post (Thanks, google)! Look at all that unapologetic fatness! This year has definitely been the year of embracing my ‘double chin’ aka my neck snuggle in photos. #bodytrust #themoonremembers #fatacceptance #fatpositive
