“Can I hug you?”

“You are awesome.”

“Big love.”

Check out this radical self-acceptance experiment by Amy Pence Brown, who vulnerably stood in a busy public market in Boise, Idaho.

Some question why she needs the validation from strangers, but I don’t see it that way. Every single person who drew a heart – every person who simply walked past her – gave at least a fleeting thought to courage. In a society that demands we constantly critique, pick or fix our bodies, body positivity is an act of bravery.
