Words That Move You . . .

Sometimes all it takes are a few good words to get you moving.

"I do not want to waste one more minute of my life feeling bad about the way I look. If you're obsessed with how you look in your bikini, you're not going to have much fun at the beach."
—Christina Ricci

This quote reminds me of the time I walked on the beach in El Salvador with my mom, collecting seashells. I was wearing a tankini and just having fun. I wasn't thinking about my body at ALL and I think that if I had been, I wouldn't have been able to focus much on the moment. Life's way too short to always be thinking about how you look.

Um, I love her and all, but I don't believe for one minute that she really means that, or is at least successful in living that way even though it's a nice sentiment.

Good for her! I heard her talk about her previous self-esteem issues with her face and five-head, and it was sad. She looked so pitiful. She's pretty in an unconventional way, and who wants to be typical anyway?

i love her. i hate that guilt we as women are inherently supposed to feel about ourselves...i wish we could evolve....but as media-obsessed and hollow as our society is..it's gonna take awhile.

And let me add that I don't take this quote the way a lot of anorexic people do....poor things. It's just a reminder that you feel good when you look your best and helps me take a second thought before eating chocolate cake or candy!

The words that motivate me are when Oprah said: "Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels!"
