As many of you know, body image, eating disorder awareness, and empowering women to be healthy and happy are causes about which I am incredibly passionate. I recently had the opportunity to star in and help produce a video that gave me the opportunity to send a message about all of the above (and look goofy while eating delicious food)!
The #StopTheFoodShame project is largely in part a reaction to the youdidnoteatthat Instagram page. The account, which has more than 140,000 followers, shames and mocks women who take pictures with “bad” food, implying that skinny, healthy, attractive people don’t actually enjoy indulgent food, but rather use it as a prop. You can read more about why @youdidnoteatthat is problematic here and here.
Ready to help #StopTheFoodShame? Watch, reblog, and the next time someone tells you #YouDidNotEatThat, look them dead in the eye and say: OH. YES. I. DID.
Eeyore is just one of those characters that you wanna scoop up and hug forever.
One awesome thing about Eeyore is that even though he is basically clinically depressed, he still gets invited to participate in adventures and shenanigans with all of his friends. And they never expect him to pretend to feel happy, they just love him anyway, and they never leave him behind or ask him to change.
And he does feel happy, though. He can be happy. He just doesn’t show it as much as the others do.
There was a whole episode about that - Piglet sees him sitting on a hilltop and thinks he’s sadder than usual, and does all he can to cheer him up. Nothing works and the next day he’s back on the hill, and Piglet apologizes because he thinks in trying to help, he just made him sad again and ”I don’t come here when I’m sad. I come up here because I’m happy.”
There’s just something about that…
