"You are imperfect, permanently and inevitably flawed. And you are beautiful." Amy Bloom

So much is written and said about body image and the perception of beauty because it continues to be an importance in most women's lives. We really have to be less harsh and critical of ourselves just because the media and fashion magazines show perfect images of a female.  Reaching a healthy balance in mind and body can be a difficult road, but stepping away from the myth of a perfect body puts you in the right path.

The first step is to recognize that we all have different shapes and sizes.  Remember, the right size is not the smallest size just because of a celebrity's Instagram photo.  Understanding that our body shape is unique helps us create a good and positive self esteem.  Most importantly, we need to step away from negative thoughts because it's the whole you that matters when you look in the mirror.

You are important, unique and beautiful and that is what every woman should see when looking in a mirror.
