10 BETTER BODY AFFIRMATIONS FOR YOUNG WOMEN
1. Your body is in flux for the rest of your life. Think of your body as fluid instead of static — it’s always going to change. So get comfortable with those changes.
2. No one will love you or not love you because of your body. You are lovable because you’re you, not because your body looks a certain way.
3. The most intensely personal relationship you’ll ever have is with your body. It’s a lifelong relationship that’s well worth investing in and nurturing the same way you would with loved ones.
4. You don’t owe your body to anyone. Not sexually, not aesthetically. Your body is yours. Period.
5. What someone else says about your body says more about them than it does about you. Look past the actual snark to the person who’s saying it, because it’s only a reflection of what they think of themselves. That’s when you’ll see how little power their words have.
6. Your body is not a reflection of your character. It’s a physical home for the complex and wondrous and unique being that is you.
7. Take up as much space as you want. You don’t have to be small, or quiet, or docile, regardless of your physical size.
8. Everything you need to accept your body is already inside you. There’s no book, or diet, or workout routine or external affirmation that you need to feel good about your body right now.
9. Your body is a priority. It’s always trying to tell you things. Taking the time to listen to is of the utmost importance.
10. Wear whatever you want. Your body shape does not dictate your personal style, and fashion rules that say otherwise are wrong. Dress yourself in a way that makes you feel happy and confident and beautiful, because guess what? You are.

Bonifacio Monument, Caloocan City
Before the NLEX was built and the cloverleaf in Balintawak became the first contact in the Metro, all vehicles from the provinces north of Manila enter the Metro area through the Manila North Road or McArthur Highway and at the end of it is the junction of Rizal Avenue, ESDA, Circumferential Road 4 and McArthur itself. In this intersection is a monument to one of the country’s National Heroes: Andres Bonifacio.
Designed by the National Artist Guillermo Tolentino, the monument adorns the circular road in the intersection of Manila’s 4 major highways. It had been threatened to be transferred somewhere due to the expansion of the MRT 3 to connect to LRT 1 and PNR Sangandaan but Caloocan objected with the transfer, prompting to redesign the railway system into what we see now. For 80 years, the monument stood in the same spot, witnessing the transformation (and degradation) of Caloocan City and Rizal Avenue.
PS: It’s Andres Bonifacio’s 150th Birthday today.
