Talking Body: 11 Celebrity Quotes To Inspire Your "Bikini Body"

Bathing suit season is upon us, and every girl I know no matter how tall, thin, beautiful or healthy is probably freaking out right about now. It seems ironic that the most fun and adventurous time of the year is also the most nerve-wracking for those of us with any insecurities (all of us). Surprisingly enough, you're not the only one going through this. Read on for 11 of your favorite celebrities and their take on body positivity and how you can incoporate it into your life this summer at the beach or by the pool.

"I'm learning that you can be comfortable and still look beautiful."-Selena Gomez

Because you shouldn't have to obsess over not looking as fit, toned or thin as the girl next to you. Another person's beauty does not detract from your own.

"I think happiness is what makes you pretty. Period. Happy people are beautiful. They become like a mirror and they reflect that happiness."-Drew Barrymore

Happy girls are pretty girls, and being happiness isn't derived from the number on the scale or the size of your jeans. Happiness comes from peace within yourself.

"My great hope for us as young women is to start being kinder to ourselves so that we can be kinder to each other. To stop shaming ourselves and other people: ''too fat too skinny, too short, too tall, too anything.' There's a sense that we're all 'too' something and we're all not enough. This is life. Our bodies change. Our minds change. Our hearts change."-Emma Stone

This is something that really irks me all of the time, when I hear the people that I think are beautiful around me being mean to themselves, and for what? Be kinder to yourself, treat your body as your temple. Nourish it well, exercise, rest and love the skin you're in. Being kinder to yourself will make you kinder to others in turn.

"I keep telling myself that I'm a human being, an imperfect human being who's not made to look like a doll."-Emma Watson

Because whether you believe it or not, you are human and you may be imperfect but that does not make you any less beautiful. In fact, the imperfections are what make some of the most beautiful things in life.

"The female body is something that's s beautiful. I wish women would be proud of their bodies and not diss other women for being proud of theirs."-Chistina Aguilera

Stop body shaming yourself and stop body shaming others! Be proud of your body and do not be ashamed or insecure of your imperfections, they are what make you you.

"I want to enjoy life, and I can't if I'm not eating and miserable."-Kate Upton

Starving yourself and obsessing over your body are not only unhealthy for your body but for your mind and quality of life, too. Be kind to the body and it will be kind to you. Take good care of yourself, you're worth that much.

"I'm proud of my body, I'm finally in a good place and learning to love me for me, and not somebody else's standards."-Khloe Kardashian

Set your own standards and work to live up to those. The standard of beauty set by society is unattainable and quite honestly, irrelevant. If you think you're beautiful, others will take notice and do the same. But you're opinion of you is what ultimately matters most.

"I want to encourage women to embrace their own uniqueness. Because just like a rose is beautiful, so is a sunflower, so is a peony. I mean, all flowers are beautiful in their own way, and that's like women too."-Miranda Kerr

You are not everyone's cup of tea, no one is. But someone thinks you are the prettiest rose in the garden, or maybe you're the peony. Either way, you need to believe it too.

"If you're not hot you're expected to work on it until you are, if you don't have a good body you better starve the body you have down to a neutral shape..."-Tina Fey

Our beauty standards today are so unreasonable that even the women who have achieved them can barely maintain them. I don't know about you, but I'd rather be happy than perfect.

"There's nothing wrong with me or my shape or who I am: you're the one with the problem."-Jennifer Lopez

The way you regard others says so much more about the way you regard yourself than you do the other person. Love yourself as you are, and it will become that much easier to accept and love others as they are.

"I'm not going to sacrifice my mental health to have the perfect body."-Demi Lovato

Why settle? Concentrate on your mental health and positive body image will follow. Have fun on the beach, by the pool or doing whatever this summer by concentrating on all of the things your body has and can do, rather than things it doesn't have or cannot do. Your worth is cognizant of so much more than the "perfect" body.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
