I don’t mind compliments that involve appearance, but we should all have a few more tricks up our sleeves. 

(via emilyvgordon)

In naturism, we reveal all of ourselves, our whole bodies, but suddenly we’re not so focused on physical appearance. Suddenly we are all just humans with most of the same body parts. So we take a little bit more interest in people for who they are and what they have to say. Looking beyond the superficial to what really counts.
