Scared almost out of my life as I drove through the darkness of what was 7 am this morning. Petrified of the icicles that may possible pierce through my window as I cruise down the 95 North to my destination. My higher power has my back is what I continued to whisper to myself as my thoughts further went into Gizzy. OMGosh…..Gizzy. Gizzy is my car by the way. Her name is Gizmo, yet I call her Gizzy for short. My nerves went back to 100 as I thought about if she would make it in this weather as I had not had her serviced in months!! So busy with life that my poor Gizzy’s interior, her heart and soul, had been neglected by me. The MOST important aspect of her. Yes, her exterior is a bright shiny black with glistening rims…what about her insides though?
Quickklllyyyyyy…my thoughts raced to our bodies. We as a people judge the exterior so very much, that we forget about the most important part, our interior!! We look at fuller bodies and immediately jump to the person being unhealthy or a smaller frame and think that the person is as healthy as a whistle.
Taking the time to pay attention to our interior temple is what is essential. We must make sure our mind, heart, soul and organs are indeed in optimal condition and maintaining that over the course of our lives. Whilst we do this, embracing whichever or whatever exterior roundness, slim-thick, boney, voluptuous and everything in between and beyond that we are blessed with as my girls and myself have grown to do!!
I mean do you just see ALL of this BEAUTY!?!?
Now these smiles have grown, and are still continuing to be this big in regards to loving our exteriors!! We have endured dramatic increases and loss in weight, from a size 0 to a size 8, from a size 24 down to a 4 and right back up to a 18, from a size 12 to a 24 down to an 8 and now back to a 20!!! Ohhhh and Lola claiming to get abs in a 10 minute workout! LOL! A rollercoaster of emotions, fad diets, extreme workouts and lack of self-love and self-worth. Cool with no commitments, wait, that was them, but we were with it. I hope ya’ll get that Destiny’s Child, “If”, reference because these photos give me all Destiny’s Child vibes!
As our journey continues, we of course still pay attention to our exteriors as that is a part of the process and honestly, life. We give even more love and attention to our interiors, providing our interior temples with an ear for listening and paying attention to what they want and giving them everything that they need!!
Never would we have thought we could ever dress as triplets and wear the same dress!! This would have never been possible a few years ago! The day has finally come and I found us each a dress in our very own size. A dress that embraces DeAsia’s frame, Nova’s slim waist, camel-wide hips, juggonot size H breasts at a size 12, and Lola’s slim-thick frame, tiny legs, cantaloupe size E breasts at a size 10!
Although not every dress comes in every size, there are many options that are available nowadays in 20 19!! I have scoured a few for ya’ll Novistas!! Have fun and get your girls together to have a dress up/dress alike day out on the town. We had so much fun doing this. It brought us back to our youngin’ days where we used to just hang out without a care in the world!! It was definitely an amazing day and I wouldn’t change my girls for any other in the world!
With a few buttons left open on DeAsia’s dress, a lift up and pin on my bra straps and some safety pins on Lola’s dress, we shifted, pulled and addressed our dresses to hug and love our bodies just the way we do! As we continue on our journey, it is my goal to continue to push us all to pay more attention to our interiors, focusing less on what our exteriors appear to be. Moving away from looking at what the tag says and putting on a whichever dress size makes us feel like the QUEENS that we are!! Continue on your journeys, embracing your exterior, while giving heavy love and attention to your interiors, QUEENS!!! Ohhhh and get your girls together and grab some of these dresses and hit the town, all while being,
Unapologetically Me. Unapologetically You. Unapologetically Us.
