I liked the Jigsaw bit. Self-acceptance is truly such an appealing trait in others and most importantly in one's self.

Self-acceptance is important, but it's not easy to come by when everything external tells you you're only worthwhile at a size 8 and below.

Sra does make a good point. Self-acceptance is a lofty goal but alas one that is truly hard to achieve.

Love the Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs!!
We were driving by this really great-looking neighborhood yesterday and it made sense that property values would sky-rocket in a place that's well kept and maintained. Aesthetics, really, is never inconsequential.
