If you think about human nature, our favourite pair of shoes is the one we bought yesterday, the newest thing we have. If you think about the thing that we’ve seen the most, and for the longest period of time, it’s our reflection in the mirror - so obviously that’s gonna be our least favourite thing.
People always ask me, “You have so much confidence. Where did that come from?” It came from me. One day I decided that I was beautiful, and so I carried out my life as if I was a beautiful girl… It doesn’t have anything to do with how the world perceives you. What matters is what you see. Your body is your temple, it’s your home, and you must decorate it.

Happy birthday, Adele!
Today in health class, we were talking about body image and eating disorders, and my teacher told us to think of the most important person in our lives, and then write five sentences about why they are important. After we read a few to the class, our teacher pointed out that NOBODY said that the reason that they like them was because they were skinny, or because they were a size zero. This really helped me. :D
I follow everyone back!
