i've happened upon a lot of fabulous blogs lately that offer such powerful messages to women about self-acceptance. i feel that, across the board, self-acceptance is something we all deal with at some point in our lives. too often it feels like we're meant to "fight" against ourselves and our bodies to achieve perfection. but true joy is in the act of letting go. letting go of the idea of perfection. letting go of negative self-talk. when you release all the negativity, you create space in your life for beauty...true beauty. the kind that shines from the inside out.
