“Getting in the gym makes me feel the best I possibly can, so I make sure I get that in. It’s all about finding your strength, feeling comfortable in your own skin. I never thought I’d be in such a great place. That’s the beauty of working on yourself and taking care of yourself. You get to places where you never thought you’d be.”  People Magazine

 

Barbra Streisand

 

“I was an ugly duckling and a loner. I was known as the kid who had a good voice and no father. My mother laughed at my ambition. She never hugged me or said words like, ‘I love you.’ I never would have ended up doing what I’m doing. I owe her my career. I was always trying to prove to her that I was worthy of being somebody. If you don’t feel loved as a child, you spend your life trying to get that love. People who have two parents who love them are very lucky. They are not left with a hole to fill. You have to fill it with yourself, eventually.” CLOSER

Christina Aguilera

“You can never be too perfect, too thin, to curvy. I’m very confident and happy with
my body.” US Magazine

“It’s important to recognize your own self-destructive behavior and be honest about it.
You’re only hurting yourself or losing out on your truth and happiness. I’m not afraid to face
my own personal stuff. It’s so important to dig it up and figure it out and move on.”  Cosmo Girl

“I like my body when I have curves. We all come indifferent shapes and sizes, and this is
something to celebrate.”  Parade Magazine

Hillary Scott

“I know I will never be a size 2, and that’s okay with me. There are definitely days when it gets to me, but I know part of the reason I have this platform is to be a normal-size person in an industry that tells everyone exactly how they should look.  Your body is your body. You need to take care of it, you need to eat well, and you need to exercise for your life, not for anything else.” Redbook

 

Cara Delevingne

“I was always embarrassed about them (eyebrows) when I was a child, so it’s nice that [the positive response] helps other girls accept theirs. Now I could talk about brows all day. I feel that some days you wake up and you’re having a bad day and you just have to try to remember that it will be all right. It’s a daily mantra. It’s not about trying to be weird. W’re all weird. It’s about being who you are and not trying to be anyone else.”  PEOPLE

Peyton List

 “Depending on the day, my skin can be completely clear…or a blemish-ridden mess. My hair is either sleek and shiny…or dull and frizzy. And sometimes, no matter how I might appear in a picture, I just feel crummy about the way I look. I can easily tell when a photographer has Photoshopped my face or body-you’d e surprised at how often it happens. It’s so sad when girls look at a highly edited picture of me and say, “Why don’t I look like her?” Hello, I’ve een airbrushed! So instead of comparing, I’m trying to focus on being the best version of myself. That might mean I wear makeup sometimes (it’s fun!) and use my favorite tricks for taking good selfies(natural lighting is key). But it also means that on the days I feel like waking up and rolling out with my face completely bare and my hair in a messy bun, I’m going to do that too-because I’ve realized there’s no better feeling than when you actually woke up like this”  Girls Life
