"I just can’t believe our bodies allow us to feel. It makes us different than other life. We can feel things that initiate a response greater than fight for flight. We respond with language, with laughter, with silence."
"I’ve never had what I consider to be the perfect body, and I never will. It has never bothered me apart from the odd floating thought after a big meal or lazy day. That may put me in the minority. I’ve had a hard time relating to the body image issues I’ve seen my family and friends experience. I realize that I am more attracted to ‘real’ bodies (scars, bruises, rolls, stretch marks, hair) than to ‘perfect’ bodies. Imperfections are signs of life I can relate to."
"I feel beautiful when I'm pouring my heart into any endeavour I care deeply about. The beauty comes from a sense of feeling whole and filled with self love. Giving myself time to drive betterment in the world from a place of genuine authenticity is warming and feels gorgeous."
