In this episode, I go on a rant about stepping into your power and getting rid of negative thoughts. We don’t have any more time to waste obsessing over our bodies! I also talk to body positive YouTube creator, Mermaid Queen Jude (or Jude Valentin) about body positivity, her journey with body acceptance, and her sweatshirt, thinness is not an accomplishment. For the dessert, we’re diving into love with a quick note about the importance of honesty in dating.
