More Reasons To Accept Ourselves ...

It's Beautiful Wednesday today. When we talk about body image, self-acceptance and feeling beautiful, no matter what your size.

Here a few more reasons to accept who we are, even when our bodies are not perfect. If we wait until we're perfect, we will never be. And we will never be happy. 

Case in point: this video on body image in teens. Teens, skinny as many of us once were, still aren't satisfied with themselves. Young men and women, looking the best they ever will, unhappy with how they look. Why? Because our culture teaches us we are never enough. Let's STOP now. Let's teach our teens and young children that we don't have to be perfect to be beautiful.


And another one. This is powerful. Let's show our daughters, our nieces, our female students that we accept ourselves, and they can, too. In spite of what the media says. I want my two beautiful nieces to know that the media's definition of beauty is wrong.

Be You are beautiful! I love you, ladies!
