This “who did it first” mentality needs to stay in 2019. there is not enough latina brands or businesses. so start your own shit. who cares about what the chismosas have to say. you matter, your voice matters, your vision matters. you are worthy of being in the places you dream of being in. if i listened to every subliminal thrown at me on social media, listened to every hater, then vlb wouldn’t be here. there’s “space” for all of us to take up with our unique ideas, business plans,
conversations, and still thrive. so ignore the haters, block out the noise, and start that business b.. #vivalabonita#latinabrand#latinabusiness#latina#womenempowerment#selfempowerment#bonita#bonitasquad

when i first posted this image months ago, i cropped my b***y 🍑 out of fear that it would be “too much”. i stumbled upon this image last week and felt saddened that i acquiesced to the idea of being judged by an image that shows my body in a swimsuit ... in an incredibly stunning setting.
i’m a part of the body positive @instagram community and yet - i was terrified of posting this image. the reality is, as humans, we are layered with emotions — and our moods and feelings toward something are going to vary day to day. my main goal is to have an increasing self-awareness and to always improve during my self-love journey. when i first posted this photo, i was feeling insecure and felt compelled to crop this out of shame. today, i feel empowered and in awe of this photo. as @mikzazon says ... we need to normalize normal bodies. so... enjoy the view 🤪 #normalizenormalbodies
