The key message in these readims: Elaine Welteroth got to where she is today because she knows she’s enough, just the way she is. She was always interested in design and beauty, and these interests set the stage for her career as a magazine editor. As the daughter of a white father and a black mother, she had a vested interest in advocating for and promoting black representation in mainstream media – work best showcased by her time at Teen Vogue.  Actionable advice: Trust your gut! If you’ve got a feeling about something – whether it’s a bad feeling about a romantic partner or a good feeling about a potential professional contact – trust it! Not all bad feelings mean you have to break up with your partner, but you should take the time to investigate where the feeling is coming from. Own your instincts and see where they take you; it might just be to the top! Got feedback?

For her, claiming that space and believing in her enough-ness involved fully owning and inhabiting her blackness. But, of course, that’s not the only kind of self-work there is. For many people, the obstacle standing between them and full belief in their self-worth is their bodies. In The Body Is Not an Apology, author Sonya Renee Taylor unravels the myths and mind-sets that encourage us to hate our bodies. If you’ve ever struggled to accept yourself and the body you live in, then get ready for a crash course in radical self-love and check out the readims to The Body Is Not an Apology.
