To expand your idea of success and happiness beyond achieving an unrealistic standard of beauty, get a corkboard and place it in an area you spend time in every day.
Each time you see an article or picture of someone or something you find inspirational, cut it out and place it on the board. Be especially on the lookout for people who defy the mainstream standards of beauty.
For example, Oscar nominated actress Gabourey "Gabby" Sidibe has been extremely vocal in the body size acceptance movement. She’d make a wonderful addition to an inspiration board. I also include people who have overcome adversity in order to do what they felt was morally right. Start your inspiration board today!
