Real Beauty

My first year in Boston has been quite eventful so far. Thankfully, myself and my loved ones have been out of harm’s way, and I very much appreciate those that have reached out and expressed concern. The events that unfolded this week were tragic, and such circumstances are a great opportunity to reflect on real beauty. All over the city, people showed their real beauty by coming together and supporting one another. Despite all of the hardship, I am thankful to be surrounded by such loving neighbors and citizens, as well as such hard working law enforcement officers. #bostonstrong

If you haven’t seen the Dove Real Beauty Sketches that came out recently (see video below), you should definitely check it out. Thank you to Hitha, Sally & Molly for alerting me to this awesome video!

More real beauty…

For anyone looking to improve their relationship with food, mind, and body, I highly recommend Intuitive Eating. If you’re not game to go through the entire book, at least check out the 10 principles. These RDs are onto something life changing!

Up next on my reading list? A recommendation led me to Perfect Girls, Starving Daughters. I’m interested to learn more!

Lastly, I couldn’t mention real beauty without recommending this documentary film. America the Beautiful is an incredible film, and I can only imagine that the sequel is just as compelling.

Thanks again to everyone that showed their real beauty and compassion this week in Boston! I’m lucky to have landed in such a caring community, and I’m excited to continue my New England adventures. #bostonstrong
