welcome weirdos

Posted by Freelee @growsomeovaries on


I'm sitting here eating sugar apples and a very old memory is triggered. As a youngster i had a routine of listening to my mum and dad talking in bed at night. They didn’t know i did and usually it was very calming for me. Not this night. I overheard my dad say that he thought it was weird that i didn’t have many friends, and that i wasn’t normal. I remember gasping and trying to hold back the tears. I already felt like an outcast in school. Now my dad, who was the centre of my universe even thought i was strange.

I felt like i had disappointed him and that he didn’t love me so i went about trying to make friends. I was very introverted and this felt unnatural to me. I only liked minimal company. Needless to say the plan failed. I repeated the pattern a thousand times more until one day i realised hang on.... This is who i am. Being a weirdo is my speciality! 🤙please don’t ever be afraid to be different, be afraid to be like everyone else. You are a limited edition. So welcome my fellow weirdos, you will fit right in here.

Why am I so ugly?

Posted by Freelee @growsomeovaries on

Lately, i go days without looking in the mirror even once, and i find it incredibly freeing. This was definitely not always the case. As a young woman, i became obsessed with my reflection. I would spend hours a day analysing and comparing. Was it because i was vain? Because i thought i was too perfect for this world? On the contrary, i saw a face filled with 'imperfections'. I believed the story i was told by advertisements, that i was born inadequate and in desperate need of enhancement.

I saw normal human characteristics as defects to be erased or covered; to be ashamed of. I hated my skin, especially my freckles. My smile was too narrow and my teeth too crooked. My top lip too skinny. Eyes not big enough. My hair too fine. The reality is, i didn't see the real me in the mirror. I didn't see the cheeky girl who loved to explore nature for hours and play in the dirt and creeks, instead, i saw the ugly lies the beauty industry fed me. I've now been many months without makeup, fake lashes, creams, treatments etc and it feels so damn liberating. Remember, you were not born flawed, you were born into a flawed system. You were designed to be wild and free, to get dirty, to love and laugh, to explore and experience this beautiful planet - not to stress over your humanness.

go raw till 4 vegan!

Posted by Freelee @growsomeovaries on

In my early teens and most of my twenties i had serious digestive issues. I was often curled up in pain, this picture is symbolic of that. I took courses of strong antibiotics, they only intensified my issues. I was losing my sanity. I decided to book in with the 'best gastroenterologist in australia'. The 15 min consult cost $215. He looked ill himself but he was the "expert" after all, so i trusted him. I was sent for an endoscopy. $430 later he diagnosed me with "an inflamed gut". Well no shit sherlock! I could feel it was inflamed...but why?? He said i need not worry as there was a special medication coming from the usa soon which would heal me, in the meantime there was another drug he recommended. I knew this was a lie, i'd been there before. As he was writing the script i stood up and pushed the chair away "no✋️i do not want anymore drugs!" and stormed out.

Long story short, i decided to take my health into my own hands. I found the raw vegan and raw till 4 lifestyle (most importantly fruit) and finally got out of my bodies way and let my body heal itself. Freedom from your digestive distress is closer than you think.

Why am I so weird??

Posted by Freelee @growsomeovaries on

In my eyes you are successful in life when you have the courage to embrace who you really are, however strange or peculiar that may be. Regardless of whether it fits with societies expectations or cultural norms. Growing up i often said the wrong things, didn't have the right clothing, or the right look, and was laughed at or excluded for being "a bit weird". I never felt fully accepted. Over time i learned to keep my "uncool" thoughts to myself and adapt my appearance so others would feel comfortable being around me. This only left me feeling internally suppressed and frustrated, (certainly not free) until one day when i reached my threshold and thought - ahh fuuuck it, this is boring! And this isn't me! - from then on i decided to just let the true me flow, to be my rawself, to act impulsively, to own that embarrassed look from others and to be the awkward freak i'm born to be. The result? Goodbye fake friendships, hello soul mates.

I AM A WOMAN NOT A CHILD.

Posted by Freelee @growsomeovaries on

The more i embrace my natural self the more i see the truth. And the less i can stay quiet about it. That's why im writing a new book "My Naked Lunchbox". People tell me to shut the fuk up all the time but we should speak the fuk up or else we change NOTHING. We help NO ONE. I'm happy to be an outcast in a society that considers natural women disgusting. To be called an 'extremist' in a world filled with sick and twisted cultural norms is an absolute compliment... because wrong is wrong even if everyone is doing it and right is right even if no one is doing it.
