Beautiful You: A Daily Guide to Radical Self-AcceptanceBy Rosie Molinary Someone might have alleged that I have body image issues. So I did what I do -- checked out a half-dozen books about body image from the library. This one I even own! But I checked it out anyway because my library is still not catalogued, and I couldn't find it. Our library is great now, so cozy since we redecorated. That's another subject. So allegedly I have these body image/self-esteem issues which are hard to challenge because maybe I have evidence that I'm a grotesque beast, and you present little evidence to the contrary, other than your "opinion". I admit, it wouldn't hurt anyone for me to read about radical self-acceptance and maybe do some journaling exercises. So I did the first exercise in this book: 1. What do you want for yourself and the world in terms of beauty perception and body image? How can you act on that today? I want to feel beautiful every day and love my body no matt…

Oh yeah, it sure is.
