Bad lighting vs good lighting ☀️🌿
These photos were taken a bit over a year ago but I wanted to post them side by side because the one on the left ruined my perception of myself when I was having a "good body day". I no longer think either is a "bad photo", but when I had these photos taken I immediately thought I looked fat on the left and hated my body. Even after I took the "better photo" on the right a few minutes later, I still had the negative view of my body and I didn't think I looked good even though these photos were taken when I was at my leanest.
Please don't let photos allow you to feel like this. Don't seek validation from photos.
You will look different in all photos you take. They're just a snippet of your life and they do not define your worth.
Yes it's great to take amazing photos of yourself and feel good about them but don't rely on these photos to feel good about yourself. Don't let the bad ones make you hate yourself and make you think you need to change your body.
Photos do not reflect who you are as a person. So don't let them have the power to change your view of yourself. 🌴☀️

@PointeChronicles • This is Me • I am 5'6". My weight fluctuates from 108lbs to 135lbs. My body is extremely sensitive to what I eat, the way I workout, my period, & the ups and downs of life. 3 weeks ago when I filmed #PointeChronicles Vogue, I was feeling strong and confident. Last night I finally got back to the studio to film another idea, and when I looked at myself in the mirror I felt the complete opposite. That moment turned into this video idea. Part of your job as a dancer is to maintain a very specific aesthetic. Those specifics can vary drastically from style to style and be very difficult to maintain. For anyone who has experienced this moment and done some version of this in the mirror, I want you to know that you are not alone. I do it too. One of my most FAQ's is how I stay fit. The truth is, it's a constant battle to maintain a healthy balance, both mind and body. Some weeks I find it better than others. I go through cycles with my weight, my creativity, my drive, my darkness, & everything else. I am working towards self love 100% of the time, & starting today I am challenging myself to banish any negative body image thoughts from my mind, because there is no time for such nonsense. I hope this video will inspire at least one person to do the same. The world needs our love, kindness, and positivity more than ever... and the more we give this to ourselves, the more we will be able to share it with each other ❤️💫❣️ #KylieShea#PointeChronicles#ballerina#balletdancer#bodyimage#ballerinas#dancelife#dancers#selflove#balletdancer

MUM'S ORDERS. Flashin' them pearly whites, finally... 4 years after graduating. 😃✌🎉
'Twas the perfect opportunity to reflect on the years that's passed, how far I've come (or not), and how close I am to where I wanna be. I'll admit – the road hasn't been easy: I've stumbled a couple of times; I've settled for some choices, and given up on others. I've lost some acquaintances, and forged new, stronger friendships. I've grown since then (though deep down I feel, not much). I've got a lot more growing to do, it seems.
NOTE to my Future Self: "After this whole ordeal, what you're currently going through – DON'T LOSE FAITH; instead, give it to those who deserve it. Your loving family, your best friends, to those who stuck it out for you (and continually do so) 'coz they know you've worked so hard to get this far. Have courage, and give yourself a break. You deserve it (though sometimes you don't believe it)."
As what one wise philosopher once said, "Treat yo' self."

I am so thankful my workouts 💪🏼 are only 30 min long and that I can do them from anywhere! They work perfectly with my busy schedule and give me no excuse not to get them done ✅.
On a side note 📝- I started a gratitude journal 📓today that I plan to write in every morning. It is so important to practice gratitude to live a life of abundance! .
Life is beautiful 🌷! Happy Saturday 😊
