This Weekend and Every Day, Give yourself permission to act like a child - to view the world with wonder - to let your mind be free.
Recently in this blog I’ve been hearing about people who felt unloved, changing themselves just so that people would start liking them and my advice was all the same: don’t change yourself if you think there’s nothing wrong with the way you are. I don’t know if people actually take my advice around here, I’d like to think that at least I give them hope or at least get them to smile. Then I thought about it some more and thought, “I want to be loved for who I am.” I don’t want to change myself just to get some guys’ attention. I’m conservative. I love books and writing. Music is everything. I love food, Care Bears, and Disney. I love holding my parents’ hands even if I’m in public —I’m not ashamed of it because who cares what other people think, you know? There’s nothing wrong with what I’m doing. Yes, eating too much can be unhealthy, so I decided to start eating healthier. Best part of it is, I made that decision for myself. Not for society, not for guys, not even for my parents but for me. Because I know that’s the right thing to do. I know that I can seem a bit weird, odd, quirky, but I just don’t care. I believe that one day, the one I was meant to be with would love me for all of that. He wouldn’t care if there were parts of me that he doesn’t like because he loves me for me. Wouldn’t you want someone who’d sit there, listening to you talk, and just stare at you lovingly? Someone who’d look at you like there’s nothing more beautiful in the world, when he stares at you, everything else is tuned out, focusing only on you. Then a smile creeps onto his face, a sweet smile, telling you that he loves you, and you’re absolutely amazing to him. Then he takes your hand in his, and you both just look at each other, mesmerized. Everything’s just perfect because you both love each other for who you are. For being yourself. Moments of perfect happiness. We can achieve real love, by just being who you are. No one can be happy when you keep many secrets from your significant other. It’s hard, you know? Holding back on who you are just to get him to stay. Well for me, I want to be completely honest, and I want someone who will be completely honest with me, too. I want a love where there’s no holding back. Where you can just be yourself and the other wouldn’t care because that’s the very reason why he loves you, anyway. Because you’re you.
Sorry, I wasn’t needed anywhere, which is totally fine. I could spend some time just sitting here and do nothing, haven’t exactly done that in a while. So I just decided to write about my thoughts and hopefully you’ll feel enlightened or happier after reading it. (My apologies for it’s length. You don’t need to read it.)
This article was titled “black workout pants for every body type” This is the picture they have for the plus-sized pants. REALLY?!?!?! Advertisers are crazy!

If you’re plus-sized
Look up to several sizes smaller.
Go for sleek and fitted pants like the Reebok on the Move Capri pants ($45; Reebok.com), rather than something bigger, which would only add volume. With enough suck-you-in spandex, this fabric provides the support you crave. Ruching up the calves attracts attention away from the thighs, helping slim the whole leg.
Tester says: “They fit like a glove but don’t feel as if they’re going to stretch out. And the ruching makes me feel sexy, even as I’m sweating through kickboxing!”
