Fit”, “skinny”, “overweight”, “scandalous”, “outspoken”, “controversial”… every day people use many different words to qualify each other. Whether they are meant as a compliment or a criticism, words ultimately impact the way we interact and see ourselves. This month, we were inspired by the first rule of The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz: Be Impeccable With Your Word.
“Depending upon how it is used, the word can set you free or it can enslave you more than you know. The word is so powerful that one word can change a life or destroy the lives of millions of people […] If I love myself I will express that love in my interactions with you, and then I am being impeccable with the word, because that action will produce a like reaction. If I love me, I will love you. If I insult you, you will insult me. If I have gratitude for you, you will have gratitude for me. If I am selfish with you, you will be selfish with me.” – Don Miguel
Hoping to encourage you to Love Yourself, we created this #Unapologetic fashion editorial and what better exemplifies the frustration that so many people are going through during the summertime than a swimsuit. How many times did you criticize your own body? How many times did you tell yourself you were not slim enough to wear a swimsuit this summer ? Break that word: Can’t. Be you. Be Gorgeous. Be #Unapologetic.
This month, we will give you career, fitness and health tips to get you closer to your goals. We will also introduce you to people who follow their dreams and who are #Unapologetic.
Enjoy this wonderful month.
