The #SelfCareSeries by Maya Osborne: Day 7
When we pledge a lifetime of our love to another, we hold ceremony. celebration. we promise acceptance and to be present. to hold space and uplift.
when we pledge love to our bodies let us uphold the same reverence. let there be a newness between you and your body. you are on a new journey. let there be statements and proclamations of love.
Let them become our practice. let us make a ritual of love within ourselves, that we may then share with each other.
This is my first collaboration with a male photographer, Justin Thorpe. This series displays my regular self care practices in my private space paired with pieces of my writing. The intent through this series of photographs and poems is to share what it looks and feels like to take care of a fat body. My love and acceptance of my body, began in my bedroom. And though my bedroom and my body have changed and will continue to, this will always be sanctuary. Xoxo
