Plus Size Promotion

Sound Off Sunday

This Sound off Sunday is all about the recent wins in the Plus Size industry.

It has been hard being Plus Size or Full Figured in this day and age.  There used to be a struggle to find clothes that were not only sized correctly, but that were also fashionable and trendy. I am pleased that all black is a thing of the past and that plus sized women now can find clothing options that suit their personality as well as their figure.  No matter where you fall in the discussion of Plus Size, lately Plus Sized women are all over the place.  Gracing the coveted cover of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit, the cover of Ebony,  and the fashion week shows in almost every major market.

I want to thank the media outlets for having the courage to go against the grain and cater to an often forgotten population.  I want to thank the Models:  Ashley Graham, Chrisette Michelle, Jazmine Sullivan, Gabi Fresh and Danielle Brooks.  You guys rock! There are also so many curvy pioneers that are too numerous to name.  I salute you all too!

The past few weeks have made me more proud than ever to be a part of the plus size/full figured community.  It is wonderful that people are finally starting to recognize that not all full figured women are unhealthy or morbidly obese.  There are just some curvy women in the world who wear their sizes well.  It has always amazed me how concerned people are with plus size/ full figured women but not concerned with women who are scarily thin (which is just as unhealthy).  Anyway I am happy of what the media has put out for us fuller figured women these past few weeks.

Wow!  We are entering the third week of this year.  Already!  It seems that just a few days ago it was New Year’s Eve and we were thinking about what new resolutions or changes we were going to make for the coming year.  And now in the blink of an eye it is now three weeks later.  Where did the time go?

No matter where the time went.  One thing is for sure, it is not coming back.  So there is nothing left to do but make the best of the rest and keep moving forward.  Just yesterday one of my co workers spent her last day working with us.  She is moving on to a new job, new location.  While I think she delayed leaving for as long as she could the change was inevitable.  She accepted the offer of the new job and so her new opportunity awaits.

How many of us are waiting for the next opportunity to come to us?  How many of us are just sitting back and waiting for something to smack us in the face or on the ass to motivate us to do what we already know we need to do.  How many of us are holding on to our dreams and or visions only to watch them pass us by or even worse to watch someone else benefit from our hard work and effort?  More often than not we send so much time waiting and not enough time moving that by the time we move, it is too late.

What are you waiting for?  What is it that you need to do or change or fix?  What things are waiting for you if you would only take that next step?  How long are you willing to sit by while life happens around you and not to you?   No more for me.  I am ready for the Year of Yes and I am pleased so far at my progress.  While there is more to come and more to do and more to see, I am happy that I decided that this year my Yes would beat out my No!

Stay Fabulous, Stay Blessed
