There may be times when you feel as though you are inadequate, or you just don't fit into the world's definition of who or what they say you should be. Guess what, you don't need to fit in. You are enough, you don't need to change yourself to make someone else feel better. You were beautifully designed. Fearfully and wonderfully made. You are one rare gem, for throughout the world there is no one else like you. Now, that's worth celebrating. You are special, you are unique, you are no mistake. Always be yourself for no one else will ever come close to fulfilling your role.

With girls especially, I think there's a lot of pressure to look a certain way. Let's say you do get really skinny, then it's your boobs or butt not big enough. Too many stretch marks etc. It's hard to love your body when you're constantly seeing these pictures of these women that supposedly look perfect. Despite that, I, along with many other girls, am trying hard to love my body for the way it is instead of telling myself I'll love my body when it looks a certain way.

There are people out there who are struggling, and I’m struggling, and it’s okay to come to terms with realizing it’s going to be a bit of a journey. I have been struggling a lot with weight since I'm a foodie but it takes discipline to make it happen.
