Amazing body confidence inspiration to remind you that you’re gorgeous and fabulous just as you are.

Amazing body confidence inspiration to remind you that you’re gorgeous and fabulous just as you are.

Not feeling so hot when you look in the mirror? We’ve been there, girl—and we’ve got your back. If you’re having “a day” where you can’t help but hate your hair/your thighs/your skin, here’s some body confidence inspiration to remind you that you’re gorgeous and fabulous just as you are.
1. Take a good look at yourself—and let the words of Oprah cleanse your soul: “The next time you look into the mirror, try to let go of the story line that says you’re too fat or too sallow, too ashy or too old, your eyes are too small or your nose too big; just look into the mirror and see your face. When the criticism drops away, what you will see then is just you, without judgment, and that is the first step toward transforming your experience of the world.”
2. Repeat after Christina Hendricks: Life’s too short to beat yourself up for indulging in dessert, nachos, etc. The Mad Men vixen has said, “Back when I was modeling, the first time I went to Italy I was having cappuccinos every day, and I gained 15 pounds. And I felt gorgeous! I would take my clothes off in front of the mirror and be like, ‘Oh, I look like a woman. And I felt beautiful, and I never tried to lose it, ’cause I loved it.’”
3. Don’t judge yourself by other people’s—or society’s—standards. Take it from : “I’m proud of my body. My body weight will always be something that I’ll struggle with for the rest of my life, but I’m  in a good place and learning to love me for me, and not somebody else’s standards.” Preach!

4. Remember that starving yourself sucks. And J. Law doesn’t approve of it in any way: “In Hollywood, I’m obese. I’m considered a fat actress. I eat like a caveman. I’ll be the only actress who doesn’t have anorexia rumors! I’m never going to starve myself for a part. I’m invincible. I don’t want little girls to be like, ‘Oh, I want to look like Katniss so I’m going to skip dinner!’”
5. Choose to love yourself, just as you are. And if you’re having trouble with this, let these three ,  inspire you:
+“One day I had to sit down with myself and decide that I loved myself no matter what my body looked like and what other people thought about my body. I got tired of hating myself.” —Gabourey Sidibe
+“I love my snaggle fangs. They give me  and  is sexy.” —Kirsten Dunst
+“I definitely have body issues, but  does. When you come to the realization that  does—even the people that I consider flawless—then you can start to live with the way you are. I’ve read interviews with some of the  women who have insecurities. And you look at them and you’re like, ‘How do you have? Name one thing wrong with yourself,’ and they could name a handful.” —Taylor Swift
6. Yes, some of these celebs are badass. But don’t strive to look exactly like they do, because pretty much every photo you see is doctored, airbrushed, and zapped of imperfections. Like author Cheri K. Erdman wrote, “Even the models we see in magazines wish they could look like their own images.”
7. Know that you are NOT your weight. As author Geneen Roth says, “It’s never been true, not anywhere at any time, that the value of a soul, of a human spirit, is dependent on a number on a scale.” Truth.
8. Don’t forget that Lady Gaga loves you, just as you are.

And so does Zooey Deschannel, ”YOU ARE HOT,HOT,HOT”
9. Take this clutch advice from Oscar Wilde: “To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong .”
10. Don’t base your body confidence on boys, but consider that while you’re worried about what you look like naked with them, they’re just happy to be naked with you at all!Remember this part of Eat Pray Love: “Let me ask you something, in all the years that you have…undressed in front of a gentleman has he ever asked you to leave? Has he ever walked out and left? No? It’s because he doesn’t care! He’s in a room with a naked girl, he just won the lottery.” Exactly.
11. Keep in mind that confidence is hot.

    1. Thank you SherryAnne,
      The way I see it (and I could be wrong) society has really twisted things around the wrong way. It's not for women to impress men it the otherway round, we have to prove that we are worthy of you. It seems that's the way it works in the animal kingdom...
      ...have nice quality hug :)
