"My mother has aged gracefully. She has embraced wrinkles, white hair, stomach fat, cellulite and what comes with age. She does not even contemplate the idea of plastic surgery, botox or injections. And, I think that might be genetic. Why would I violate or hurt my body with needles or knives? Why not just worship it instead? Love it - surrender to imperfection, aging, to gravity and let love for my body just overwhelm me. Yes. That’s what I will do."
"I used to be disgusted by my body. The media, social pressure, my peers - they led me to believe i was fat - that there was too much hair in different places. That kind of disgust and self-loathing is not something anyone should experience. It has taken me to some pretty dark places."
