Congratulations! Today is YOUR DAY!

Congratulations! Today is YOUR DAY!

Every morning when I wake up, I repeat my favorite mantra by Dr. Suess, “Congratulations! Today is YOUR DAY!” Depending on the mood, I might go further... “You’re off to GREAT PLACES! You’re off and away!”

A Story by Mandy Bynum

I am enough.

I am enough.

“I force myself to wake up each day and reclaim my power. I stare down my ED each morning, announcing to it, and to myself, that I will not be controlled. I will not be consumed. I will choose to stand up and fight.” - Meredith Essalat

You are entirely up to you.

You are entirely up to you.

“The night I was assaulted, I lost control over my body and my sense of self. I spent the next few years desperately trying to regain control, but the trauma and denial of the incident left me fumbling to put the pieces back together.”

- Janelle Lescure

10 Years Is A Long Time

10 Years Is A Long Time

10 years is a long time. I feel like a totally different person than the girl I was 10 years ago. So much has happened and so much has changed. How I view the world has evolved from what it was 10 years ago—along with my goals, priorities, opinions, fears, and dreams. Ten years holds a lot of missed experiences. Ten years is a long time to be gone.

“For that 6th grade version of myself, so nervous about all of the unknowns ahead: I wish she could even begin to imagine what my life looks like today. And I would tell her: Thank you.” - Katie Dalton

Self-worth and confidence is more than being "skinny"

Self-worth and confidence is more than being "skinny"

“Looking back, I wish I could tell my younger self that her self-worth and confidence is more than being "skinny" and that there are healthier ways to overcome mental pain. It's about being strong, feeling well, and feeling comfortable in your own body, which is what I eventually found through exercise. It's about living your passions and being proud of your accomplishments.”

“I tried for so long to dim my light to make others comfortable and now I want to show girls that by becoming invisible we give away our power. By speaking up and showing up, especially when it’s uncomfortable or scary, we are instilling in ourselves that we have value to add, while empowering others to do the same. “
