“‘Body positivity is freedom from suffocating societal messages that keep people in a perpetual struggle with their bodies.’
I f#&*ing love that! Personally, learning to truly LOVE my body took many, many, many years! It is a work in progress. I am now in my early 40s and have given birth to three humans. I have never felt stronger or sexier in my entire life!”
“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. 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
“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.”
