This is for the woman at the check outline feeling guilty for her workouts not comparing to those of the stars on the pages of the magazines in front of her. For the young girl starting to question whether she really is beautiful like her parents always tell her. For the the person leaving it up to the scale to decide whether they’ll have a good day or bad day. For the teenagers starting to focus on other people’s bodies more than the health of their own. For the women stuck in a rut because they feel they just don’t measure up.
This is for all of you.
We are constantly bombarded by negativity in the media. Lose this, lessen that, shrink, stop, QUIT. What about GROW, GAIN, THRIVE! That’s the positivity we need in our lives. Hopefully someday the media will realize that and make a change for the better.
The wonderful ladies that submitted covers for my contest are helping that goal become a reality one small step at a time. Thank you girls! You are truly inspiring and have helped made my little project so fulfilling.
Hopefully the positive messages that are being projected by these ‘alternative’ magazine covers will help counteract some of the negativity that’s out there. If one person feels even the slightest bit uplifted from these covers, then we’ve done our job.
Pretty amazing huh?
I honestly wish I could give all these lovely ladies a prize cause they are all winners in my book! But unfortunately only one could win. The winner of the awesome prize package is:
