I’m a ballet dancer, author, and Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling student at Trevecca Nazarene University. I recovered from anorexia nervosa and live with anxiety, depression, and PTSD. I aspire to create an eating disorder treatment program for dancers.

And don’t you ever forget it 🤍⁣ ⁣ With so much of societal messaging shifting back to “thin is in”, it’s so easy to get caught up in thinking that you need to change your body to be “enough.”⁣ ⁣ And the reality is that your body isn’t what defines you or makes you “enough” or “not enough.”⁣ ⁣ Your body is just the thing that carries you through life — it’s a vessel for the amazingness you hold inside ✨⁣ ⁣ Side note — did that “thin is in” messaging ever actually change or go away? Or were we just settling for thinking that acceptance of slightly larger bodies was progress and now we’re trying to act surprised? That’s a post for a different day 😅 ⁣ Top and jeans: @target — the whole look is linked in my @shop.LTK page at the link in my profile 💫⁣ ⁣ #allbodiesaregoodbodies #bodyneutrality #bodyacceptance #bodyposi #bodyconfidence #nashvillestyle #plussizeootd #curvyblogger

November photo dump 🤍⁣ ⁣ #november #november2022 #nashvillelife #nashvilletn #lifestyleblogger #dayinthelife

As soon as I saw this photo @imagesbybean took of my performance at @satellitedanceinc’s Carina Nebula show, my immediate thought was “Wow, I look so strong.”⁣ ⁣ I’m so grateful to be in a place where I can mostly (not always!) see pictures of myself and actually appreciate myself and my body vs. hating it.⁣ ⁣ I view eating disorder recovery as a lifelong journey, not an arrival point. Of course it’s something that gets easier and requires less effort over time — and it’s something that’s always in the back of mind 💛⁣ ⁣ Just 6 years ago, I relapsed on Thanksgiving — and today I’m enjoying food and not having a single negative thought about my body. Yesterday I spent my day seeing therapy clients — many of who struggle with disordered eating. ⁣ ⁣ It’s not lost on me what a privilege it is that I’m at this point in recovery — I never imagined I’d be in this place, and I definitely don’t take it for granted 💛⁣ ⁣ Leotard and tights: @juledancewear⁣ ⁣ #recoveryispossible #therapistsofinstagram #aerialarts #aerialistsofinstagram #nashvilleblogger #aerialhammock #healthateverysize #bodyneutrality

Style hack — you can pair a maxi skirt from spring/summer with a warm sweater + ankle boots and it transitions perfectly to fall/winter! ✨⁣ ⁣ You could even throw tights underneath for extra warmth 🥰⁣ ⁣ While I love buying new clothing, my wallet doesn’t always say yes to that — so I love being able to repurpose pieces across multiple seasons 💫⁣ ⁣ Would you wear this look? Let me know in the comments 🤗⁣ ⁣ #plussizestyle #bodyacceptance #nashvillestyle #nashvilleblogger #curvystyle #nashvilleinfluencer
