What I Want to Do:

Love YOUR Gut
Love My Gut is an as yet-unfinished project focusing on self-love, positive self- and body-image, and higher self-esteem.

The world is obsessed with fake, plastic perfection, and the true beauty of unique imperfections is vanishing before our eyes'. It's time to take a stand against false and formed beauty, and love ourselves just as we are - perfectly lovely and natural as we were meant to be.

Love My Gut is not about fat acceptance, skinny acceptance, natural acceptance, etc. It's about self-acceptance. You can read more on Love My Gut's About page.

To that end, I am also wanting to start a Love My Gut Blog, featuring writers of all walks of life who are fighting the battle of self-love and self-acceptance in a world fraught with media onslaughts of "you're not good enough".

If you think you would be a good contributor to this blog, please contact me and give me the reasoning behind your wanting to contribute, a little background about you, and some samples of your writing. We are also interested in fighters and survivors of eating disorders, self-injury, etc.

If you would like to share an one-time essay/story/poem/etc rather than be a regular contributor, please indicate that when you contact us.

This is a non-profit gig for as long as you'd like it to last. Only one post per month is required...posting more is optional according to your preference and what you have to say.

Thanks so much for your interest in helping to spread self-love.

Quotation Shake off all the fears of servile prejudices, under which weak minds are servilely crouched. Fix reason firmly in her seat, and call on her tribunal for every fact, every opinion. Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason than that of blindfolded fear.
