I know what it’s like to look in the mirror and hate the reflection.
I’ve felt the pain of never feeling thin enough, pretty enough, successful enough...
I’ve heard that voice inside my head constantly whispering that something is missing.
And I’ve tried to fill that void with restrictive diets, endless exercise, and trying to achieve “the perfect body.”
So, I started sharing my story on Instagram at @maryscupofteaa in hopes to connect and inspire others to accept themselves exactly as they are. Today, Mary’s Cup of Tea has touched with millions of women around the world.
Short on time? I saved you a little work by picking my top three favs! Grab a cup of tea and get ready for some self-lovin'!
What is self-love? Most people think of self-love all wrong. Mary explains what love really is and how you can truly fall in love with yourself.
Bad body-image days happen to all of us, so it’s important that we learn how to handle them with self-compassion. Tune in to hear practical tips for those negative body-image days.
These are questions that will help you create more peace, joy, and (self) love in your life.
So it won’t be a surprise that going on an adventure with you and a group of retreat sisters is the dream for me. Here are a few of my most treasured retreat moments!
Whatever you're going through, you don't have to go through it alone. At Mary’s Cup of Tea we aim to create an inclusive community of womxn who are all on a self-love journey.
Brene Brown defines connection as “the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued; when they can give and receive without judgment; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship.”
Compassion is contagious. The more we are compassionate towards ourselves, the more compassion we have to give to others. We care deeply about every single person we encounter.
Everyone belongs here, including you. We respect, appreciate, and celebrate all races, genders, sexual orientations, abilities, and any other identities. So come as you are, we love you already.
We do our best to be integrous to our core values at all times, whether it’s posting something on social media or putting together a transformational self-love retreat. If at any point we make a mistake, we will own up to it and fix it with integrity.
