2 years ago, while searching for a Senior yearbook quote, I realized I had so many quotes hidden around my room. They were everywhere - written on post-its, old napkins, scraps of paper, in my cellphone. So I decided to compile them and make a journal full of quotes. These quotes have helped slowly mend broken hearts, dryed tears, caused smiles and laughter. I get such a joy from finding a quote that relates to exactly the situation I am dealing with - which is exactly why I have started this blog - so that maybe by reading one of these quotes, it can make at least one person realize they are not alone.
A woman is often measured by the things she cannot control. She is measured by the way her body curves or doesn’t curve, by where she is flat or straight or round. She is measured by 36-24-36 and inches and age and numbers, by all the outside things that don’t ever add up to who she is on the inside. And so if a woman is to be measured, let her be measured by the things she can control, by who she is and who she is trying to become, because as every woman knows, measurements are only statistics and statistics lie.
People always ask me, “you have so much confidence. Where did that come from?” It came from me. One day I decided that I was beautiful and so I carried out my life as if I was a beautiful girl. It doesn’t have anything to do with how the world perceives you. What matters is what you see. Your body is your temple. It’s your home, and you must decorate it.
