It can’t be stressed enough how important it is to love your body. Take care of yourself, adorn your body with pride, know you look beautiful and don’t be afraid to strut your stuff!
With messages left and right telling women that they need to change, it’s difficult to ignore it all and know that you’re fabulous just as you are. When you come to understand that and love yourself, it becomes much easier to nurture your mind and health to improve yourself rather than “fix” yourself.
The famously curvaceous Christina Hendricks has a body type that deviates from the modern beauty ideal, but the fact that she is absolutely gorgeous is undeniable. She feels the pressure like every woman does, and this is what she had to say in response:
“Sure, I’d be happier with 10 pounds off — wouldn’t every woman? But when I looked at pictures of myself at the Emmys, I thought I looked beautiful. I didn’t tear myself apart.”
And that’s just what every gal should do. There may be a few things you want to change, but that doesn’t mean you aren’t beautiful. You are. Own it.
