You may have seen the hashtag in the last few weeks on instagram, twitter or facebook. Just what is this #REALwomenmove deal all about? It’s about you, me and every women out there just doing whatever we can to move! It doesn’t matter what size you are, or what ability you may be, if you are out there moving, you are a part of the #REALwomenmove campaign!
Skirt Sports has created this awesome movement with a mission of changing the perception of women and fitness by showing the world that being fit comes in all forms. A real women is one who is proud of who she is and is comfortable in her own body. She is a confident women who does not judge other women while leading an active life that is important to her health and happiness. Most importantly, she accepts and loves herself as she is.
That last part is so important because I believe a number of us need to work on loving the beautiful person that we are both inside and out. I know for me that can be a challenge at times. We see these “perfect” and “skinny” women in magazines and on television and it distorts our vision of how amazing we are. Each and every one of us are gorgeous and need to realize that. This movement gives us just that, the chance to love ourselves more and each other just as the Creator made us. Embrace your beauty!
