Today I am chatting with one of Toronto’s Real housewives, Roxy Earle. Roxy is a TV personality, model, fashion designer, and body activist who is making her message heard loud and clear in the media. Roxy has a personal brand called My Size Rox which is inspiring generations of girls to feel good about themselves no matter what size they are. Roxy works with brands such as H&M, Knix, Le Chateau, Joe Fresh, Columbia, and so many others to educate them on the importance of including more of a range of sizes so all women can be included.
Today she shares more about her business, the reality of body shaming and how she’s sharing body positivity to inspire the world. In the past year, Roxy’s Father passed away from cancer, and she talks about how his death was one last gifts he gave to her to teach her that life is precious and should be lived. This girl has a powerful voice and she’s using it to help so many other women who may not have the confidence to make the changes in society.
Roxy shares that there was a moment that happened on television where she was being interviewed and everyone kept asking her how it felt to be the first plus-size housewife. She remembers responding with, “I am not plus size, I’m my size and my size rocks.” Following this statement, thousands of people reached out to her thanking her for representing them; they felt important because they could finally identify and relate to someone. She is now proud to be part of a group of women who are shifting the paradigms and conversations forward about size in the media.
The biggest culprit in not feeling good is often people’s own voice; we are our own worst critics. Speak to yourself as you would to your best friend. You have to love yourself and be kind to yourself and speak kindly to yourself if you want to feel good things about yourself. Start from within - every time you have a negative thought about yourself, say out loud to yourself, STOP - and correct that thinking. The more positively you think about yourself, the more you will believe it and the more confident you will become.
