Intimately, Mandy 

Here's the thing, Beautiful - what society thinks a body should look like and what a body should look like are two totally different things. A body should look loved. I don't care if it's by me or by you or by your mom or whomever. { L O V E D } is what matters. And why shouldn't it be? Think of all it does! Raises children, heals trauma, fights injustices, makes shit happen, laundry (sometimes), takes relationships to next levels, gives hugs, moves the mountains that stand in our way, and shatters ceilings. Human bodies amaze me. Simply amaze me. Celebrate all of that - don't wait until you fit in a mold that isn't you - celebrate you, now, as you are. And at the end of the day, I'll love your body enough for both of us - until you see you the way I do. 

"To be beautiful means to be yourself.
You don’t need to be accepted by others.
You need to accept yourself."
