A positive body image goes beyond liking your looks. It encompasses taking good care of yourself and leading a fulfilling life. In this new series, I’m sharing some of my favorite posts from my some of my favorite bloggers on just that. Hope you find these links inspiring, too!

One of the best ways to boost our body image is to sharpen our senses and enjoy the world. Susannah Conway is hosting her annual August Break, which involves taking just one (or more) pictures a day and posting it on your blog. (I signed up and will be posting my photos on my personal blog.)

How to deal with negative comments about your body.

So many things underlie our relationship with food. Getting to the root — and then working through it — can be incredibly liberating. This is one of the most beautiful posts I’ve ever read on that topic. Ever.

This post centers on writing, but it’s great advice for life in general.

Here’s one of my favorite quotes from Karen Walrond from her book The Beauty of Different: Observations of a Confident Misfit

Beauty is something we experience and feel on a soul level. It’s more than being pretty or aesthetically attractive – and it’s an intangible attribute that stirs something deep inside of us.

Each of us – because of all of our differences – possesses the power to touch another’s soul.

Look closely.

We are all beautiful.

Have a great weekend!!
