Beyoncé Vogue 2018 Issue: Self-Care Re-Examined

Photo Credit: Vogue Magazine “During my recovery, I gave myself self-love and self-care, and I embraced being curvier. I accepted what my body wanted to be”. (Vogue September 2018 – Beyoncé) These words were eloquently spoken by Beyoncé in a recent article published in the Vogue September 2018 issue. What stood out the most to me through out this inspiring article is her unapologetic and fierce acceptance of who she is and the way she is choosing to show up in her life both personally and professionally, despite the many life transitions she has experienced over the past few years. The self-care and self-love movement is having an impact on women both young and old around the world; to live it authentically everyday for the world to see is where the real transformation happens. ...

Looking back on that time in my life it was my way of attempting to erase not only myself, but all of the hurt, pain and disappointment I was feeling; you can read more about that here. However, what I learned during that ... View Post
