There's quite a bit of variety in the shape, weight, size, and color of human bodies. So much of our time is spent wishing that we could change things about our body that we don't often take time to celebrate what's absolutely amazing about it.
While most appeals at body positivity focus on loving the shape or color of one's body, it's also important to remember what an amazing biological piece of equipment it actually is. Trillions of cells work in orchestra to form organ systems that keep us all alive.
Our bodies represent the culmination of 4 billion years of evolution. We couldn't be here if it weren't for the countless genetic mutations that took place to make all of our ancestors better adapted to their respective environments. That simple yet mind-boggling truth should be enough to give anyone pause and admiration for how great being a living organism actually is.
