In today’s culture, having compassion for ourselves isn’t always the number one priority. Instead, we are constantly hearing the message that we should be hard and critical on ourselves.
In this episode, I’m talking with Julie Allen. Julie is a mom based out of Portland, Oregon to a busy toddler aged son and a young step daughter. She started Mary Rose North West Boutique because she recognized the need for a clothing boutique that focused on body positivity, self-love/acceptance, and helping women feel confident in their clothes. Her goal is to carry pieces that help women feel just as beautiful as they truly are.
Julie struggled with anorexia and bulimia for 15 years and has made it her mission to empower women to love themselves and embrace themselves whole-heartedly. In addition to her body positive boutique, Julie also created the Mary Rose Foundation, a non-profit 501c3 organization designed to help women who are struggling with the financial burdens of an eating disorder.
Julie’s message is simply one of strength, courage, self-compassion and most of all, hope.
We are talking about how having compassion for yourself can help you approach your life in a way that is empowering.
