Chiquis is not afraid to wear whatever she wants and rock it, regardless of what anyone says. This photo of her showing off a super-cute outfit reminds us that you don't need to have a six-pack to wear a cute little crop top, so don't let anyone stop you from wearing what you want.

"For those of you trying your best to bring me down, ruin MY day, and take my joy, well... you can kiss my a$$! 🍑🤪 Very Happy birthday to me," she wrote. "#FlawsAndAll Celebrating one more year of life, my way. Thank God! #HappyBeeDayToMe #CelluliteAndALL."

Chiquis uses herself as motivation. 6

It's easy to compare ourselves to other people and to look to them for inspiration as far as how we want to look. But Chiquis wants her fans to be their own source of motivation. She shared a fun video of her dancing after a workout and captioned it: “Be your own body goals.... 🍑 ALL booty shapes and sizes matter!!!"


In a world that tries to tear women down, Chiquis knows self-love is the answer. 7

She looked amazing in an army green outfit that fit her like a glove. She captioned the Instagram post: "I’m not a size 2, but guess what? I LOVE myself. #SelfLove." So many of us can learn from that and apply it to our own bodies.

She knows our self-worth is important. 11

For Women's History Month in March 2020, Chiquis reminded her fans to look within before looking externally for validation. "You don’t find your worth in a man. You find your worth within yourself, and then find a man that is worthy of you," she wrote.

She knows it's all about the journey. 12

It’s called BALANCE. Tomorrow extra cardio, that’s all. 🙃."
