Beauty & Body Image

Ah. This is refreshing.
I really loved watching this.
My friend Liz beautifully wrote, 

"We need to begin to take ownership of the beautiful bodies 
we have been given, until we are no longer critical but thankful."

So good.
I want to wake up every day and look at myself in the mirror and say, 
No more nitpicking.

I heard it once said that you notice things upon meeting 
new people that you are most critical about yourself.
Does this hit home for anyone?

It does for me.  
I'll be honest. I often notice a girl's hair & if her clothing is flattering.
Because those are probably what I give the most attention to myself.
I don't want to be like this.  
I want to first notice the beauty radiating from anyone.
Because everyone showcases beauty in their own unique way.
Let's try recognizing THAT in one another.

Also, one thing I love is that Aerie, American Eagle's sleepwear
& lingerie brand is not retouching any of their models with photoshop.
Real women [not photoshopped] modeling what we are buying.

  1. Wow that poem at the end of that SoulPancake clip was amazing...!! It really makes you think about how much people need to love themselves :) Great, great clip!!

    I also must say, I've found myself doing that too - noticing things on other people that I often focus on myself as well - I agree that I too want to see and appreciate people for who they ARE, not what they look like, especially based on first impressions which I feel so many people do. Inner beauty is so much more important... :)

    Thanks for sharing!!

  2. I agree with you! When I heard they were not doing photoshop I thought it was really cool!
