Self-Image on the Homefront
In stress filled times like these, its good to reflect on how we can better ourselves from the inside out. Self-Image is an issue that affects women and girls of all ages. However, for some, self-image is a hard topic. Many women did not gain great self-esteem and image lessons from home. And many girls are not happy with their bodies. Below are a few inspiring quotes to help you to remember to love yourself in times like these:
“Be strong enough to let go and wise enough to wait for what you deserve.”

“Life is not easy for any of us. But what of that? We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something, and that this thing, at whatever cost, must be attained.” – Marie Curie
“I had to grow to love my body. I did not have a good self-image at first. Finally it occurred to me, I’m either going to love me or hate me. And I chose to love myself. Then everything kind of sprung from there. Things that I thought weren’t attractive became sexy. Confidence makes you sexy.” – Queen Latifah
