Warm weather has been so scarce in Nairobi over the past couple of days, so when the sun (finally) decides to grace us with her much welcome presence, it’s only logical that you take it and roll with it 🙂

I wore this outfit at a time when we were all cursing out the sun for moving closer to the city (oh, the irony! Lol!) and looking at these pictures took me back to a point in my life when I was heavily obese and as a result, I always felt self-conscious. Sadly, we live in a looks-obsessed society which has trained us to believe that being a size zero is the only equivalent of being perfect, so you can only imagine the struggle of being over-weight and feeling inadequate, not to mention, I was also battling with skin issues at the time. I used to be so hard on myself, it’s unbelievable! The truth is, the problem was never my weight, or any of my other flaws. It was my mindset that needed a complete makeover. Society’s “standards” of beauty and perfection will get old, but being comfortable with yourself, at whatever size and embracing your imperfections never will. I wish I understood this then, maybe my journey would have been a little easier. But then again, it’s those tough situations that really make us, right? 🙂
