🛑 ✋ STOP APOLOGIZING ✋🛑 Have you done something wrong? Then, sure, apologize for it, or make up for it by learning to change.
Has someone told you, “you are not enough of this or that?” Has someone told you, that you’re not pretty or handsome enough? Has someone told you, that you are not hot like this or that person? It is not that you are not enough, it is more about the other person and how they have lost sense of appreciation and will never see the goodness of things even when it’s staring them in the face.
Stop apologizing for being you.
It took me a loooooong while to learn how to do this, like many other people I know. I hope you listen, learn from your own mistakes, and truly SEE.

How you going to beat a pure optimistic 😂😂😂😂😂
Meet Lindsay, Beauty Redefined’s co-director and my identical twin (👋🏼I’m Lexie, the other director!) Linds is taking a step back from IG for a little while because it was causing her more stress than joy, so I get to talk about her while she’s gone! This was one of my favorite parts of her TEDx talk (besides the standing ovation when I got all kinds of choked up! 😭). She wrote like 16 drafts of her talk - our *huge* opportunity to share Beauty Redefined with the TED talks world - and memorized every draft word-for-word. Sitting in the audience while she said these powerful words (on our birthday, no less!) that capture the foundation of what we do gave me goosebumps. And the 10 mins of the talk that followed were ✖️amazing.✖️
💗Linds and I have been talking about the stress she’s been feeling about Beauty Redefined, and we realized part of it is because she’s forgotten the impact her hard work for this nonprofit has made in peoples’ lives. I tried to remind her, but it’s no good coming from me! So I was thinking that *IF YOU WANT* you could comment here with a kind word for Linds about the way this talk helped you see yourself differently or how BR has impacted you in some way. And then when she’s ready to get back on IG, I’ll surprise her with it!
✖️From her talk we'd love if you watched and shared (link in bio, or search Lindsay Kite Tedx on YouTube): "I saw that I had been stuck in an endless loop of trying to fix my body that never needed to be fixed, in order to do something I never stopped being able to do. I was still a swimmer. Any fear about what I looked like disappeared, because I was finally using my body as an instrument rather than looking at it as an ornament. I hid and fixed for so long to qualify to swim without shame. But it was only when I saw my shame and swam against it that I was able to rise on a new path – the third path – to the brave new world of body image resilience." #beautyredefined #morethanabody #seemorebemore
Embrace your beauty. Own your power.
I powerfully manage depression and anxiety.
This is something that I struggled with sharing...not because of share but because I wanted to come from a place of power.
For a long time I believed that because of this challenge I felt broken. Like something was fundamentally wrong with me.
I’ve decided to believe that I was made perfectly by God for a purpose. I was created to share my journey from a space of power, health & wellness, BOTH physically & emotionally.
If I had not been blessed with this challenge in my life then I would not be me and I would not have the ability to powerfully support others who are suffering now and are waiting for someone to show them how to manage their mental health powerfully.
What were you created for?
Loving yourself and knowing your self-worth isn’t easy when you are constantly bombarded with thoughts and inputs from the outside stating you are not ‘enough’ or not ‘worthy’. For that reason this quote from my very beautiful friend @zicara2301
is so important. Whether it be your thoughts based on unhealthy or disempowering beliefs about yourself or outside influences saying it, in both cases you need to eliminate it. You are ENOUGH. Just that 😉🤗☺️ sending heaps of positivity and light for everyone that’s healing themselves ✨ #healing #selfworth #selflove #youareenough #innerpeace #growth #personalgrowth #healingjourney #florida
I want to thank everyone who wished me a happy birthday via calls, texts, or social media. I want to thank @macnificent_photography
for these amazing pictures. I honestly look at these #photos
and can't believe that it's me. When I look in the mirror versus when I look at my pictures, I can't believe that it's me. In my photos I feel confident and beautiful, in the mirror I feel weird and unpretty. No major changes have been made in these first 18 days, but I promise to make this year the year of confidence. The year that i find my voice, and the year that I learn to love myself in real life. Thank you all again.

|| IF YOU’RE OFFERED A SEAT ON A ROCKET SHIP, DON’T ASK WHAT SEAT! JUST GET ON. - Sheryl Sandberg
If you continue to starve yourself of love you'll only meet people who'll starve you as well. If you soak yourself in love the universe will hand you those who'll love you too.
What will you reflect?
Working on a more flexible me using yin yoga: holding uncomfortable poses for an amount of time and using the breath to distract from the uncomfortable tension that comes with deep stretches.
When pressure and tension takes places that’s when diamonds are formed. “Perhaps you’ve been under strain recently, or in a significant period of your life. All the stress and trauma you’ve endured has made you who you are.” -Doreen Virtue ✨Value your self worth✨

Sometimes you go into a quiet place
You forget the face, your face, their face
You hear this humming
Something louder than your thoughts
Something that makes you feel insignificant
Something that makes you feel small
You wonder how long itll take before someone finds you
Or even cares to notice that you aren't there
Take a breath
Think about the sunrise
Think about me
I want to be with you
Next to you
Cuddled up to you
I cant stop thinking about you
Dont leave me here
I dont know what life is like without you
I love you
Tell me what you need from me
I'll give you everything
All of me
Just say it
I love you
All of you
Dont tear me apart
Or you apart
That's more of my concern
Dont carry that heavy heart
You're so lovely
I'll love you endlessly

At the end of the day, day
My momma told me don’t let no one break me
Whatever it may be, you got this 👊🏼
