If beauty is in the eye of the beholder, then if the beholder believes they are beautiful, what's wrong with that? Confidence about your inner and outer beauty, flaws and all, speaks much more about you than those turning you down and shutting you out. If you truly accept who you are as a person, then nobody can tell you that you aren't beautiful.

On a small side note, the role the media plays in depicting "healthy" body image is pathetic. Healthy is not making yourself puke. Healthy is not starving yourself. Healthy is not taking so many supplements and vitamins that you lose track.

What's this all about?

  • Our name is twofold. “Able” meaning capable. There are four of us with disabilities - visible and hidden. Assumptions from others perceive us as not being capable of carrying out a "normal" life. But the fact is having disabilities gives us more desire to be willing and able. “Bodies” because we all have our own, and also part of a larger human body. Able and Bodies together speaks to each of us individually. We are willing, able and VERY capable of achieving whatever our mind is set toward. When the four of us are together, the feeling is amplified.
