15 Body Positivity Quotes That Will Brighten Your Day

Everyone has things that they don’t like about themselves, even celebrities. We all tend to be very critical of our bodies, often for things someone else would see as beautiful. Instead of letting negative thoughts get you down, read these body positivity quotes and reflections. I guarantee that you will feel better afterward.

Recognizing Body Diversity

1. “Body acceptance means, as much as possible, approving of and loving your body, despite its “imperfections”, real or perceived. That means accepting that your body is fatter than some others, or thinner than some others, that your eyes are a little crooked, that you have a disability that makes walking difficult, that you have health concerns that you have to deal with — but that all of that doesn’t mean that you need to be ashamed of your body or try to change it. Body acceptance allows for the fact that there is a diversity of bodies in the world, and that there’s no wrong way to have one.” ~ Golda Poretsky

2. “Girls of all kinds can be beautiful—from the thin, plus-sized, short, very tall, ebony to porcelain-skinned; the quirky, clumsy, shy, outgoing, and all in between. It’s not easy though because many people still put beauty into a confining, narrow box…think outside of the box.” ~ Tyra Banks

3. “We are a gorgeous, infinite circle of women of all shades, all styles, in all the ways we were made, inside of us everything blooms.” ~ Alicia Keys

4. “Diversity is the one true thing we all have in common. Celebrate it every day.” ~ Author Unknown

Bodies come in all shapes, sizes, and colors, and this diversity should be recognized and celebrated. I promise that there is something about you that others appreciate or wish that they had.

Life would be boring if everyone looked the same, and the things that you find beautiful now would be ordinary. Where’s the beauty in that?

Finding Beauty In What Makes You Unique

5. I am imperfect and yet my imperfections, like any great work of art, are what make me a masterpiece” ~ Kelsey Silver

6. “For young women, I would say, don’t worry so much about your weight. Girls spend way too much time thinking about that, and there are better things…what makes you different or weird, that’s your strength,” ~Meryl Streep

7. “I’ve made peace with the fact that the things that I thought were weaknesses or flaws were just me. I like them.” ~ Sandra Bullock

8. “Since I don’t look like every other girl, it takes a while to be okay with that. To be different. But different is good.” ~ Serena Williams

9. “There’s only one of you, so why would you want to look like everyone else?” ~ Adele

When you look in the mirror, you are likely seeing and critiquing all of your flaws and “problem areas”. We all play this game with our reflections at times. However, the imperfections that you see make you different and uniquely you, whether you like them or not.

Perhaps, those flaws are supposed to be there. What if that thing that makes you stick out turns out to be an asset that you didn’t realize you had?

No One Can Live Up To Unrealistic Body Standards

10. “To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

11. “I’ve learned that if you’re too skinny, they’ll say something about it. If you’re not skinny enough, they’ll say something about it. I just try to feel good in my own skin as much as I can.” ~ Jennifer Love Hewitt

12. “You define beauty yourself, society doesn’t define your beauty.” ~ Lady Gaga

13. “Being a healthy woman isn’t about getting on a scale or measuring your waistline. We need to start focusing on what matters — on how we feel, and how we feel about ourselves.” ~ Michelle Obama

14. “One day I had to sit down with myself and decide that I loved myself no matter what my body looked like and what other people thought about my body.” ~ Gabourey Sidibe

15. “Even I don’t wake up looking like Cindy Crawford.” ~ Cindy Crawford

If Cindy Crawford doesn’t wake up looking like the Cindy Crawford we see in magazines and on television, then the rest of us cannot expect to look like that either. It is not possible.

Society has developed some strange and unachievable ideas of what both men and women should look like. Instead of wasting time trying to look like what society defines as ideal or attractive, just enjoy being you.

It’s all About Perspective

It is easy to lose yourself when you spend too much time comparing yourself to someone else or wishing that you had a different body. How do you fix that? Choose not to let your inner dialogue make you feel inferior and dwell on what isn’t perfect.

You can be your own definition of healthy and attractive. Forget about what everyone else thinks or looks like. What matters is how you feel in your skin and learning to appreciate the beauty of being you.

It is okay to like things about yourself or compliment what you see in the mirror! Try being kind to yourself, and see what a difference it makes.
