Kate Winslet on Body Image

I just today came upon this image and wanted to share:

“As a child, I never heard one woman say to me I love my body. Not my mother, my elder sister, my best friend. No one woman has ever said, I am so proud of my body. So I make sure to say it to Mia, because a positive physical outlook has to start at an early age.” ~ Kate Winslet

I love this sentiment. It’s so true. Expect more blogging on this topic to come! Raising a daughter in our society today can be complicated.
