Today, October 20th, is Love Your Body Day. It's a day designed to create awareness about how our society (and especially commercial-advertising) views women's bodies and affects women's self-image.
A depressing statistic is that 80% of women are unhappy with their bodies. In my view, everyone ought to be proud of themselves and happy with who they are, physically and otherwise. The fact that so many people have been persuaded their bodies aren't good enough is sad. So sad it deserves scrutiny.

A blogger I admire is planning a special post for today. As soon as it's up, I'll alert you to it. It will definitely be worth visiting!
