Rock climbing is one of my new favorite sports!
This is not a tasty gummy sweet but a Jewel Caterpillar found in Amazon Rainforest. They are covered with sticky goo-like, gellatinous tubercles that provides protection from its predator like ants until they metamorphosise into winged moths.
Don’t say anything if she’s lost weight. Don’t say anything if she’s gained weight.
If you think your daughter’s body looks amazing, don’t say that. Here are some things you can say instead:
“You look so healthy!” is a great one.
Or how about, “You’re looking so strong.”
“I can see how happy you are – you’re glowing.”
Better yet, compliment her on something that has nothing to do with her body.
Don’t comment on other women’s bodies either. Nope. Not a single comment, not a nice one or a mean one.
Teach her about kindness towards others, but also kindness towards yourself.
Don’t you dare talk about how much you hate your body in front of your daughter, or talk about your new diet. In fact, don’t go on a diet in front of your daughter. Buy healthy food. Cook healthy meals. But don’t say “I’m not eating carbs right now.” Your daughter should never think that carbs are evil, because shame over what you eat only leads to shame about yourself.
Encourage your daughter to run because it makes her feel less stressed. Encourage your daughter to climb mountains because there is nowhere better to explore your spirituality than the peak of the universe. Encourage your daughter to surf, or rock climb, or mountain bike because it scares her and that’s a good thing sometimes.
Help your daughter love soccer or rowing or hockey because sports make her a better leader and a more confident woman. Explain that no matter how old you get, you’ll never stop needing good teamwork. Never make her play a sport she isn’t absolutely in love with.
Prove to your daughter that women don’t need men to move their furniture.
Teach your daughter how to cook kale.
Teach your daughter how to bake chocolate cake made with six sticks of butter.
Pass on your own mom’s recipe for Christmas morning coffee cake. Pass on your love of being outside.
Maybe you and your daughter both have thick thighs or wide ribcages. It’s easy to hate these non-size zero body parts. Don’t. Tell your daughter that with her legs she can run a marathon if she wants to, and her ribcage is nothing but a carrying case for strong lungs. She can scream and she can sing and she can lift up the world, if she wants.
Remind your daughter that the best thing she can do with her body is to use it to mobilize her beautiful soul.
One of the things my mom did right with me was she never called me pretty or beautiful. - She never intentionally brought that dynamic into my world. This means I never saw any of those adjectives as defining traits. Sure, I had to learn late how accept a compliment like that, but I certainly never had the problem of needing to find validation in someone else’s opinion of my outward appearance.
Not only did I Laugh Out Loud, there was sustained Laughing Out Loud.

OH MY FUCKIGN GOD
I WILL NEVER NOT REBLOG THIS!!!!
It sucks that I’ve gotten so used to casual drinking and now it’s dinnertime and the parents are all “What to we want we have so many choices!?”
We are still young enough to need to justify our happiness to other people in order for it to be real.
right-thoughts-right-words said: Hey I saw that you practice Karate, Shito-Ryu in particular. Which form of Shito-Rui do you practice? I'm currently a 4th Kyu in Kuniba-Kai Motobu-Ha Shito-Ryu, with some training in Ryukyu Kobudo Hozon Shinkokai. I know that Shito-Ryu is a pretty small style compared to the behemoths like Shotokan. So I just thought I'd say hi also. HI!
Oh mymymy! I’m so sorry if this is older than I think it is!
And what a gem you are! Shito-ryu seems incredibly small these days!
I do Hayashi-Ha Shito-Ryu, you can find official information on our history here: http://www.internationalshitoryu.com/
I hate to say it but - Shotokan kills me sometimes.
Fake Plastic Trees is stuck in my head while I’m studying for my O-Chem test tomorrow and I just don’t know why
