A BATTLE ON SACRED GROUND

If you ask a woman what she loves about her body, she will likely name one or two minor things – she has long eyelashes or shiny hair. If you ask a woman to name what she hates about her body – well, the conversation can go on ad nauseam. Let’s end that. Let’s stop the negative chatter about our bodies.
