re-define beautiful. it's YOU.

i ran across this photo and article while searching for something else. i stopped in my tracks as it's not usually the type of photo you would see in a fashion mag. i love all the positive responses to a seemingly normal photo of a normal girl. i often feel sad (and less than perfect) that in our society, we, as women, work so hard to fit into a definition of (unrealistic) beauty (for me: it's 'magazine' beauty) and ask that you, my beautiful friends, simply look at yourself in the mirror (today), pay yourself a compliment (today) and re-define beautiful

it's YOU.
