Iskra Lawrence is not one for typos, especially when they’re in reference to her. The model has been living the life hopping from beach to beach from Mexico to Miami and upping her swimsuit game as she goes. The Independent published an article including photos from her vacation with the headline, “Plus-size model Iskra Lawrence is the picture of body confidence as she hits the beach in Miami.” In the article, she is referred to as a “plus size model” who is “becoming a bastion of body confidence.” While the second half of that sentence is definitely true, Lawrence doesn’t approve of the first half.

The road to self-love can be a long and bumpy one, full of internal and external obstacles getting in the way of accepting ourselves. Living in a world where we are constantly told by the media and society what we should change or not like about our bodies, it’s hard not to get sucked in. Every day, we’re bombarded with overly Photoshopped pictures of unrealistic bodies on social media that leave many women feeling less than. But don’t get me wrong — social media isn’t all bad! Body-positive crusaders are taking a stand online to show that everyone is beautiful in her own way. We are seeing models like Denise Bidot start the body-positive No Wrong Way Movement , while my British sister Felicity Hayward fuels her cause, #selflovebringsbeauty , all the way from London. After going through my own self-love journey, I can tell you that it does not happen overnight. It takes a lot of work to change your mindset and start deconstructing the negative thoughts engrained in you and start recognizing the beauty in our differences. Loving your body is a choice that each individual must make on her own and happens when you stop comparing yourself with others. Cutting out your own negative self-talk can be one of the hardest and most important steps. An exercise that really helped me was positive mirror talk. Each morning I look in the mirror and say out loud five things that I love about my body. Like Instagram star Iskra Lawrence says, the idea of this exercise is to point out the amazing things your body does for you and to be consistent. Keep telling yourself you are beautiful, even if at the time you don’t feel particularly pretty, and repeat until the feelings follow. Imagine how much we would all flourish and all the beauty we could create in the world if we could just start loving the marks and dips of our bodies instead of trying to change who we are. The world would be so boring if everyone looked the same! Diversity is what helps fuel creativity and keeps the world an interesting and inspiring place. To help you on your own self-love journey, I’ve enlisted eight major body-positive crusaders to share their top tips on how to love your body.
