I asked this on Facebook " How do you feel when your naked?" I must admit I thought I knew what many would say, but I was actually surprised by the replies.
I decided to ask this question because I really wanted to get some honest opinions on how people feel while in the "Nude". For the most part I thought that being naked would bring up some conversations about feeling insecure about ones body parts or saying they don't like it all. The only reason I would assume this , is because of all the complaining I see regularly about people not liking how their bodies look. So many of us talk about our bodies so negatively that we often over look the best part, THAT ITS YOU! I totally get it, there are a few things on my body that I would like to change, and I do mean ONLY A FEW, but at some point do we ever get to just say f*ck it? Well I was so happy to see that some of my fb friends shared similar views, (I didn't expect that at all).
While chatting with my FACEBOOK family and a few friends through texts and social media interactions, I came to realize that about 80 percent of my friends like to be naked. The majority of them described being in the "Nude" as being FREE. Though I would say that myself I kind of didn't expect that from my audience. Even better than that, 65 percent said that they felt comfortable and sexy while naked in front of their mates. I WAS TOTALLY FLOORED AT THESE RESPONSES, because it gave me clarity on what exactly would cause a person to feel insecure and where it would begin. One friend on Fb said she loves being naked and it doesn't bother her UNTIL, she has to get dressed and may not be able to fit her clothes. NOW that stuck out to me..... and every other response after that had me in deep thought. Another young lady was honest enough to share her experience with being a smaller size in her adolescent years, now that she is a bit heavier and not as fit, she doesn't feel as comfortable with her size currently with affects the way that feels while naked. (FEEL FREE TO LOOK AT THEM on my Facebook page).
After looking over the comments for about a day or so, I truly had an "AHA" moment. Everyone was so free and open with their feelings it truly made me think about what makes us feel as if we are any less beautiful the the next person being in the nude or not. I actually had a flash back moment of an experience I had a few summers ago with a few friends. We went to a local nude beach and all I could think about was how NERVOUS I was to be there. Though I was told all about how freeing it would be and how clean the beach was, I was kind of scared. Never the less I went and mannnnn was it an experience! I literally walked almost a mile to get there and then once I saw EVERYONE NAKED and completely free!!! NO REALLY FREEEEEEEEEE! I MEAN I'VE NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE IT. Everyone no matter the color or shape, or age had clothes on. No-one made fun of each other and not to mention that it was the CLEANEST beach I have ever been to. That day I learned a lot about myself and the world we live in. If we surround ourselves around people who will accept us for who we really are, Is there room for insecurities ? if everyone around you only sees the best in you or only sees past the things you hate about yourself , why do you hate it so much? No one on the beach that day was sizing each other up (to the naked eye, I mean, clearly I'm not in anyones head lol) , if anything people were complimenting each other, NO LIE, AND WHILE NAKED AT THAT! That summer I went to that beach with one of my closet friends till this day three tines and each time I went I felt more free than the time before.
Reflecting over the concept of this blog I totally understand why people feel the way they do and in some instances I can totally relate. It is very hard to accept every inch of your body when you are constantly being measured up against perfection. Im sure its the American way I guess, but in order to change that we have to change ourselves first. We have to demand happiness within ourselves so that we can prepare our hearts and minds to be who we really want to be. Don't get me wrong, I am not here to tell you what would be best for you. Running on a nude beach did it for me. IT REALLY DID, but for so many of you that isn't the remedy. All I can do is challenge you to believe that you are beautiful and worthy of happiness, success and love regardless of your shape and size. Putting on clothes is a reflection of your style and personality but we cover up who we really are everyday when we have to cover our bodies with clothes. When those clothes come off ; Are you happy with
you ? If you can answer "YES", that is awesome, and do a twerk in the mirror! lmbo .. If not write down what you would like to work on to love yourself better. I can't tell you what that is. It could be meditation to accept you as you are, OR it could be a work out plan and a clean eating plan to get more fit. Whatever it is, just do it, make your happiness and your body acceptance a priority. Make being happy with you a priority, freedom comes with accepting yourself as bare as being naked. I want all of my followers to experience what I HAVE MANY YEARS AGO, Being "NAKED AND FREE".
