Empowering Women

Mississippi Hippy is changing.

Over the past year, I have come to realize my passion for empowering women and helping girls of all ages find health, happiness, and balance in their life's journey.

I know what it means to fight.  I've fought bullies. I've fought weight.  I've fought eating disorders.  I've fought body dysmorphia.  I've fought negative self image.  I've fought depression.  You name it, I've fought it.  ALL women have, and I'm tired of it.  I'm tired of fat shaming.  I'm tired of skinny shaming.  I'm tired of slut shaming.  I'm tired of shaming!  The media has pushed us too far.

Yes, we were created in God's holy image to be warriors, but how can we be warriors when the battles we're fighting keep us from our intended purpose.  We were made to be loving, confident, and courageous, but we are being force fed media images that tell us we're fat, ugly, weak, and not enough.

Well I have a message for you...YOU ARE MORE THAN ENOUGH.

From here on out, Mississippi Hippy will be devoted to promoting real, normal, happy, healthy women.  I want to focus on teaching women to have balance in their life.  We cannot be the best person, mother, wife, or child that we can be when we're run down from the messages that tell us we don't measure up.

Don't buy into the bull, ladies!

Here's some post topics you will now be seeing:

  • Health
  • Body Image and Recovery
  • Lifestyle (what real women's lives look like every day, not the crap you see on Real Housewives)
  • Fitness
  • Food (cause you can love kale and chocolate chip cookies, ok?...not together, of course..unless you're into that sort of thing.)
  • Entertainment
  • Travel
  • and more!

If you have anything you'd like to see on the NEW and IMPROVED Mississippi Hippy, please comment and let me know! It is truly time for us, as women, to band together to build each other up.  We are not competing against one another.  We shold empowering each other to lead the lives we were born to live and deserve to live.  The images being shoved down your throat every day are FAKE, FAKE, FAKE. It is time to make a change.


And here's all real and all natural me. (excuse my MacBook Photo Booth glow)
