PERFECT BODY vs. BODY PERFECT: An Encouraging Note for Body Image

Our society is awesome at drowning us in the notion that the "perfect body" is not only something that’s expected of us but is also something that’s attainable. A couple months ago, I was taking a pleasant little nature walk up north, looking for the perfect instagrammable leaf. After walking around, leafless, for a good 10 minutes, I realized that I had painted this predispositioned picture of the "perfect leaf" in my mind. There were none to be found, as even the seemingly "perfect" leaves were discolored or dismembered somewhere. The perfect leaf was not attainable.

What if I told you that perfection will never be attainable for our bodies either?
