Photographer finds 96 kinds of real beauty you’d never see in magazines 

Ladies, could you picture yourself displayed 14 feet high by 48 feet wide, swathed in beautiful designer clothing? Because most women will never see their body represented on billboards or in television commercials. As women, many of us live in a world where our bodies are constantly under scrutiny, while we are inundated with pictures of women whose job it is to be one kind of beautiful. That’s why body-positive blogger and activist Jes Baker teamed up with photographer Liora K to showcase women’s bodies in a way we rarely get to see them — unabashedly real, and without Photoshop. Really.

When was the last time you saw an image of breasts that looked just like yours?”

“As a child I never heard one woman say to me, “I love my body.” Not my mother, my elder sister, my best friend. No one woman has ever said, “I am so proud of my body.” So I make sure to say it to Mia, because a positive physical outlook has to start at an early age.”

“Crying is okay here.
Hold your mountains close and
your valleys closer, they say.
You don’t know how lucky you are, they say.
But not knowing is okay here.
Waiting is okay here, even if
all the clocks have stopped their ticking
and the mountains are turning to silt
that spins in the sky above the villages
before it sinks to the ocean bed
where the monsters lurk.
Sometimes, the church pew will
turn its back to you.
It is not your fault. Inside your mouth
is all the spirit you will ever need.
Inside your knees is all the forward
you are still waiting for.
One day, you will be sitting behind a desk
that still doesn’t feel like yours.
One day, your bones will break and
you will not feel a thing and the tears won’t come.
So cry while you can. Into your pillow,
into the soil, into the crook of your elbow.
The walls may be closing in but they are not falling.
You are getting older and older but
you have never been younger than this.
You are getting weaker and weaker
but you have never been stronger than this.
Crying is okay here. Tripping is okay here.
You, with your smeared lips and hours to go
before morning and no where to turn to
but back again, you are okay here.
Even if you aren’t.”

“Love comes to those who still hope even though they’ve been disappointed, to those who still believe even though they’ve been betrayed, to those who still love even though they’ve been hurt before.”

Being sad or feeling that you are nothing.

Then you are wrong. Cause there are people who care about you and they love you. We always can’t show it in right way.. But don’t you give up. Don’t you hurt yourself cause you have so much pain inside you. Just let it out. Cry it out and after all…

My 5 year old daughter woke up this morning and put on a *ton* of makeup (she makes her own makeup). She comes running out of the bathroom and says, “Mommy do you know who the most beautiful princess is?”

"Who?!" I asked.

She turns to me and puts her chin on her shoulder and says, “I’m the most beautiful princess! Do you want to know why?!”

"Why?!"

"Because I have a beautiful heart and I’m a really kind person."

Crying.
