They boast a real human being with a figure( no haunts, sorry) and asking questions to tell its narration.

“We meet the line as a small road for people to claim their own figure narrative. We hope that as the series grows, each diverse narrative will topple the idea that there is one mas narrative we should all aspire to.”

Don’t you kinda feel right? It worked for me, that’s all I can say.

Imagine a nature where anyone, young and old, is able to describe what their body would be like if it were their sidekick . I know it’s cheesy, but that’s a world-wide I wanna live in.

I’m sharing this because the floors these women tell make a lot of feel to me … and they’re what I miss the peoples of the territories in my life to understand and hear.

We expected the founders of My Body Does about what a brand-new year’s resolution should look like. After strongly stating that they’re not in the “tell you what to do with your torso or your life” competition, they came up with this:

“At least perpetrate yourself to begin the work of sieving through some of the things you think or feel about your figure, deciding what’s not for you, what’s a fib that has been pressed onto you from the outside.”

Tell your body’s own narration … and not someone else’s form. That’s a resolution anyone can stick with. No gym body involved. 😉
