It's almost here. The official launch for Girl Body Pride.
I'm excited. I'm exhausted.
Want a sneak peak? Here goes:
Because no matter what decade we find ourselves in, we share a desire to heal a piece of ourselves while doing everything within our power to make sure today's daughters grow strong in mind before all else.
We are at war with the reflection we see in the mirror. It's either too full or too thin or too curvy or not curvy enough.
We want more for our daughters. We also want to be able to check out at the grocery store without being bombarded by magazine headlines touting The Best Diet, How to Get a Better Body Faster, and the Six-Week-Post-Partum-Bikini-Photo-Shoot that is now par for the course for practically every celeb mom. This constant reminder that we can't possibly be happy as we are is what we (and our kids) have at eye-level and what we (and they) see on television daily. And that, my friends, is total bullshit.
We all need to be reminded that we are worth everything at this very moment. Happiness is not something to be determined by a number on the scale or the tag in our clothing and Hollywood doesn't get to tell our us, our daughters, sisters, friends, and cousins that we aren't perfectly wonderful just as we are anymore.
No matter our body type or our social standing in high school or if we've had five kids or none, we at Girl.Body.Pride are here to remind us all to focus on our beauty, our strengths, and our spirits. No matter what anyone else says, we must remember that how we see ourselves is most important.
Just the Way We Are.
And that's just the About page.
August 1, people. And GBP is planning on bringing The Awesome.
