Friday Funnies: Real Women, Real Beauty
Inky friends, today's post isn't meant to be humorous. Instead, I'm using this forum to share a couple of YouTube videos with you, which I found in a rather roundabout way.

Recently we started a Paleo eating plan, mainly to focus our attention on having more whole foods (veggies, protein, good fats, and fruit) and less processed junk as a way to help support our overall well-being.
And, in the comments section, another reader had shared the link to this second video. It actually brought tears to my eyes when I watched it:
To me, the most important takeaway is to appreciate the natural beauty in ourselves. It's not that we can't strive to be healthier or set other positive goals. But please never underestimate how lovely you are, just the way you are, right this very moment!
