Evangeline Lilly feels.
On Wednesday, the 41-year-old actress shared multiple selfies of herself in a black swimsuit with cutouts and a short haircut. She also shared a video of her dancing in front of the mirror. In her caption, she admitted that she recently "felt me and my body in a new way".
"That day, bedhead, no makeup, sticky in the Hawaiian heat, I felt connected to myself, my strength, and my beauty in a way that felt unmistakable, grown-up, and autonomous. until a song swept me into motion my favorite way of stretching, strengthening, feeling and expressing! " Lilly wrote.
She added that when she initially decided on a caption, she thought about explaining that she didn't want her body to be seen as a trend, as it is always one in her life as a friend, companion, and queen, among other things has fulfilled an important function. After deciding these feelings were only for her, she was inspired to share them anyway.
"I saw a post from lovely @ georgia.clarke (which I follow) and it begged other women to take the call and use the hashtag #mybodyisnotatrend," she explained. "So I'll post now and speak out what I feel. I hope it begs you to feel your own beauty in your own way, today and always, in the face of the great pressure. I'm beautiful. You are beautiful. My body is not a trend. "
Fans accepted the comments to praise Lilly for her transparency.
"Your body is your home. Your body is YOU. It should never be a trend !!!" wrote a fan.
“That's why I look up to you so much. You are not afraid to be yourself and you don't care what others think. You live your life to the fullest and that motivates me to do the same, ”someone said.
"YOU ARE SO BEAUTIFUL OMG," added one commentator.
This isn't the first time Lilly has spoken about body awareness. In a previous Instagram post, she admitted that exercising with the intent of feeling good changed her view of her body image.
"I wish I could tell you that I have the courage to stare at bumps and bumps, spider veins and varicose veins, go limp and blotchy and see beauty, but most of the time, I'm not that badass not where I am she wants to have with my body, but I've decided to make a change, I'm not looking, "she wrote. “I put on my training equipment and make sure it's loose in the places I don't want to see ... and I just get to work. I focus on the feelings of struggle or liberation, I focus on the music or the landscape, I let my mind wander from myself ... into my imagination or the world. I do this as long as it takes until I FEEL good. As soon as I FEEL good, what I see in the mirror looks better ... whether it has changed or not. "
In a 2018 interview with Shape, Lilly also said about training: "In my 20s, training was about achieving goals in terms of strength, speed, agility and ability. But the phase I'm in now , requires balance, so I started with it. " Stretch a lot more. Stretching relaxes you and prevents your muscles from tightening, but it also strengthens you. I don't think I was aware of that before. "
