So Bad Ass came into being as a website and blog about Inflammatory Bowel Disease and specifically my journey with Ulcerative Colitis and living with a stoma.  Over the past year it has become so much more than that, my journey has taken a different path and I have been inspired to talk more about self esteem, body image and loving yourself.

Take a look at my talk for International Women’s Day on living with Ulcerative Colitis and a stoma, body image and self esteem.

My name is Sam Cleasby and Im a blogger, writer, health activist and public speaker, I am passionate about positivity, I want to teach folk how to love themselves and to see that no matter your size, shape, ability, illness, you are so bad ass.

I believe in looking for that silver lining every day, in laughing, singing and being a giddy goat whenever possible.  I think that mindfulness and appreciation for the things we have, rather than the things we don’t yet have are vital to happiness.  That we need to make time for happiness in our day to day lives.
