I’m a big Six:02 fan, they curate some of the best workout gear from brands like Fenty, Puma, Ivy Pary, Adidas, Nike and some more indie fitness brands. Their latest campaign “Thank You” — or rather “Thank You Haters!” features actress Bella Thorne thanking “haters” who have motivated her to be her best.
As a part of the campaign, SIX:02 will debut an exclusive line of “Thank You” tanks and hats with a portion of proceeds donated to Step Up, supporting the organization’s efforts to propel girls from under-resourced communities and empowering them to become confident, college-bound, career-focused, and ready to join the next generation of professional women.
I love the positive spin and attitude this campaign is taking. I try to be a really positive person but there are a lot of backhanded compliments and negative energy you just have to put up with and not engage with when you start seriously blogging and getting yourself out there. But truth be told all of that has motivated and pushed me to be better. You can either sit there wasting your energy being resentful and tearing people down or focus it on doing something great for yourself and others.
So thank you haters, all of you. Because there’s no way you’re living life half as hard as I am or as happily. Thank you for motivating me and pushing me to be better. It’s because of you I have so much more integrity and when brands try to get me to do something I don’t believe in, you’re my scapegoat. I never thought I’d get to a point where I’d be able to change programs and make campaigns better with a simple explanation of “I can’t do it your way, I’ll totally get cyber bullied…” Thank you for never letting me cut corners, and making me an overall better person. Because, I never want to be like you.
Thank you Six:02 for this campaign and the tee! The gear are super cute and available at six02.com
