3-Day Quote Challenge, Day 2

I was challenged by my wonderful friend, Courtney, to do a 3-day quote challenge.

The Rules:

  1. Post three consecutive days.
  2. You can pick one or three quotes per day.
  3. Challenge three different bloggers per day.

 

Yesterday I had three quotes, but today I’m only choosing to use two, one from Marilyn Monroe, and one from Whitney Thore (of TLC’s My Big Fat Fabulous Life).

Back when Marilyn Monroe was alive, the idea of beauty was so different than it is today. She was a size 12 I believe, and that was thought of as the ideal body size. Somehow, over time, the ideal size became something small and almost unattainable for so many of us – basically the Victoria’s Secret Angels. It makes me so frustrated.

But now, we have people like Whitney Thore speaking up about body positivity – even though she isn’t what the majority of society is thought of as beautiful. Who cares what society says? If you love your body, then flaunt it, be proud of it, talk about it, take pictures.
Another thing Whitney has done, is come up with a body positivity campaign called No Body Shame (#NOBS).


Today I challenge:

  1. Allie
  2. Sarah
  3. Bipolar Fabulous

Just as a disclaimer:
Absolutely nothing is meant by who I’m nominating on each day.
