Every year, New Year’s resolutions bring about an intense diet culture, causing many to hit the gym and crash diet in a way that isn’t necessarily healthy. To counter this, we have Megan Jayne Crabbe. She’s a self-proclaimed body-positive feminist and warrior, and she constantly proves it on Instagram with her thought-provoking, unapologetic posts about self-love and everything that goes along with it.

Case in point: Crabbe’s latest post beautifully explains how appreciating your body can lead you to be a much happier person.

Yes! We absolutely love her refusal to be at war with her body, which is a place that’s really hard to escape from.

Self-love is truly the beginning of being happy with your body exactly the way it is.

“Here’s to leaving self hatred behind and embracing our magic in 2017 ✨”Crabbe continued. “I’ll be right here, cheering on every single one of you. And I am forever grateful to those of you who cheer for me too. Sending you all so much love! 💜💙💚🌈🌞”

Crabbe’s posts are so simple, yet are such huge eye-openers and make total sense.

Of course, staying active and maintaining healthy eating habits is important, but your mental well-being matters just as much.
