I liked this blog post by Sue Bryce, which featured a series of beautiful boudoir photographs. Her narrative really touched me:
"There is a Supermodel in everyone. A Ballerina, A Princess, just busting to get out. Take off the shyness for just a day. Take off the Air around you that whispers don’t do that, don’t say that, don’t laugh too loud or be too daring, too bold, don’t shine too bright. Take some clothes off, have big gorgeous hair, be sexy, enjoy your femininity your grace. Dress up and wear really uncomfortable shoes. Be a girl, buy a frofro skirt & dance around. FEEL Beautiful from the top of your head to the tips of your toes. Enjoy your beauty..."
This applies to everyone, not only women! Be kind to yourself; appreciate your flaws as well as your strengths. You ah who you ah. And it is beautiful.
