All i want for Christmas is for women to feel great about themselves. This is why i became a portrait photographer, i love people and I think we, women have the power to help and heal ourselves and each other. All women are different and all women are beautiful. Let's accept, embrace and love our body for what it is no matter what shape or form. Not later on after that new diet we are on, right now! I read an incredible post this morning on instagram and i am still so moved by this, I decided to share it with you. This is a letter to the body written by @amangist from amandajbos.wordpress.com.
I promise to never damage you for a dress size again.
To never again sell you out in order to meet another's standards for you.
I forgive you for not being all the things I used to think you "should be", and I praise you for all that you are and all you do for me.
I promise to continue doing the work until, together, we can safely and enjoyably coexist with food.
I respect you so greatly for staying alive through all of the destructive years I've been through.
Thank you for carrying me to this point.
We will never be on opposite teams again.
I promise you and I love you.
