Australian singer/songwriter Casey Donovan has always been vocal about loving herself and being plus size and proud. The multi-talented beauty shares inspiration on her Instagram, inspiring her fans to live life to the fullest. This week, she posted an image of her in a City Chic swimsuit on the beach in Australia, with an inspirational message to her fans:
In the words of #RuPaul… Learn to love yourself, ’cause if you can’t love yourself, how the hell you gonna love somebody else? #bigbeautifulandsexy #CityChicOnline #PlusSize #PlusSizeFashion #CurvyWomen #Confidence #Happy #CaseyDonovan #Beautiful #BeachHair #Curls #BigHair #Acceptance #YouOnlyDieOnce #Love #Joy #Hashtag #Live
The 26-year old star has spoken publicly of the difficulties of being in the music industry as a plus size woman, especially being accepted. She told Canadian magazine Pink Blitz last July:
“It’s sad, we have maybe four plus sized people in the industry. We’re not very accepting of the bigger girls.”
Casey doesn’t let those difficulties stop her from pursuing her musical career and she pays it forward by sharing her adventures and continuing to empower all women to never give up via social media. One of her recent Instagram captions reflects her deep passion to inspire:
“Never be afraid to be who you are! Live, Laugh and Love! You only die once but you live everyday! So make each and everyday count!!”
We all can learn a lesson or two from Casey from how to live fully and love ourselves.
