6 thoughts on “happy beauty on a wordless wednesday

  1. The female body is born beautiful, and reaches its peak of beauty after puberty. Or at least that is what society want’s us to think….then comes children/pregnancy, and the body changes again… and suddenly the body must be covered. A healthy amount of body fat is essential to be reproductive and smart, balanced and happy. But we feel ugly when fat and stretch marks meet. It’s crazy. I’m just rambling. I always feel more human at the public pool… all the bodies, all the imperfections. We are all humans at the public swim.. 🙂

    this image – look at the easy happiness in her face. look at the grace of her posture. of course she is beautiful!

  3. You know, ifto speak about body image… then it’s not the right photo, it”s photo of an old woman, and may be for her age she looks nicely! You know, not all of us will be able to look not this fat…
