Our Bodies are assigned shapes: hourglass, pear, straight, oval, diamond, apple. Our skin and hair types are described by words like; dry, flaky, greasy, blemished, normal, average. We have been taught to measure every part of ourselves by a “one type of beauty for every body” system instead of a “every body is a type of beauty” system.What is we saw our bodies as living stories? What if the dark circles, the unruly hair, the scars- all told stories about our history, present, and future? We can all appreciate historical structures for the history they represent and the memories they house.
