"I love my body because..."
Body positivity is something that should come naturally and innately but sadly does not. This Positive Body Campaign is meant to showcase what we LOVE about ourselves. Our bodies are INCREDIBLE. Your body is the home for your heart, your intelligence, and your soul. It's time we stopped dwelling on our insecurities and start appreciating what our miraculous bodies are capable of!
How it works: E mail me a picture of yourself that makes you feel beautiful and confident and finish the sentence "I love my body because. . ."
Submissions will be posted below. I look forward to seeing your positivity and self love flood my inbox!
