Body Language: 4 Body Statements to Inspire You

These women's strongest features are their words, and we hear them loud and clear. By Marie Calica

 A woman's body speaks volumes about her life. The way she holds it upright, the scars acquired through the years, the habits she's formed that have transformed it into what it is now—all these reveal her story.

Learn to love your body! Here are more articles to inspire:
