It's All Alright

Some days I just need a reminder to give myself a break, enjoy these quotes for some inspiration. 

Laurie Hernandez

“You see women all over magazines and Instagram, and they all have these flat tummies and you’re like, ‘Wow that’s great’! I don’t think I’m exactly flat — I have a big build, and I love it. It shows that I’m strong and that I’m able to wake up and eat healthy. But if I want to have a cookie, I’ll have a cookie, and it’s OK. But I do love the way I look. I love my build, and I love that I’m strong. It’s important to love yourself because no one can really do that for you.” —Shape, August 2016

Meryl Streep

“For young women, I would say, don’t worry so much about your weight. Girls spend way too much time thinking about that, and there are better things. For young men, and women, too, what makes you different or weird, that’s your strength. Everyone tries to look a cookie-cutter kind of way, and actually the people who look different are the ones who get picked up. I used to hate my nose. Now, I don’t.” —Time, April 2014
