"In life, as in art, the beautiful moves in curves." - Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton
Today's mantra is: embrace your curves! Actually embrace your body, period. And especially embrace the parts that make you feel a little insecure.

Aren't we all sometimes tempted to compare ourselves to other girls? They might be taller, skinnier, blonder (sigh). But honestly at this point and time in our lives we should stand up for our body and embrace the way it is uniquely beautiful. I say let's spend less time being self conscious and more time living from the heart of us and following our dreams.

And so to you my friend I want to say: you are beautiful! And not only on the outside, so you're really quite something!
I feel so silly that at my age I still have those concerns... and I decided it's time to let it go!

And so I pledge that this all stops now! Self acceptance starts today and will last forever.

What do you say: self acceptance, you in?

  6. I could not agree more!!!! I love your message and this outfit! I think that the best thing to remember is that everyone is insecure about something, so that just makes everyone the same :)
    (and in my book - that makes us all awesome!)

  7. I hear ya! One of the best things about being 30 as opposed to 20 is I am able to embrace the body I have and let go of ideas of unattainable "perfection"
