When I have kids I never want them to grow up hating their bodies. I will never talk about hating my body, counting calories, go on crazy diets, shame them for eating certain foods, or have a scale in my house. I will never talk negatively about the way I look. I want to show them that I love myself, so they can grow up loving themselves too.
“Get excited about the little things. About wearing a new outfit for the first time. About Sunday brunches with your best friends. About the new cute guy in your class. About finding an extra dollar in your pocket. About anything that even remotely makes you happy because as you grow up, passions fade and enthusiasm gets mistaken for foolishness. So don’t let the grey world stop you from shining.”—Note to self (via exoticwild)
