Any of this sound familiar? If so, welcome to the club.

It's so easy to criticize and compare our bodies. Multi-billion dollar industries literally bank on it. But for the next 5 minutes, let's quiet that noise and make a pact, shall we? Let's hold off on all body judgement and, instead, revel in the beauty that our bodies already offers today.
