I was watching RuPaul’s Drag U show the other day. I loved this scene where this over-weight woman (contestant on the show) who had low self-esteem kept getting stuck on the idea that she was too fat to be fabulous. RuPaul was giving her advice and this is part of what he said, “When I think about my Glamazon, would that character get down if someone said her thighs were heavy? No. She knows what other people think is none of her damn business.” What I loved about that scene in the show was, RuPaul was helping someone stand up to who they really are. Not who they are at their best, but who they are at their core! It reminded me that my biggest self doesn’t have limits, doesn’t come from a place of conditional love — it lives boldly & bravely, loves unconditionally and thinks highly of itself. Yes! What a great reminder.
Here are a few more RuPaul quotes that I love…
“If you don’t love yourself, how in the hell you gonna love somebody else?”
“Very little is off -limits, but draw the line at being unkind.”
“We all came into this world naked. The rest is all drag.”
