She has been there . . . and back, and has come not only to accept but to love her curvy, powerful, smart, sexy, and happy self. She wants to help other girls do the same-recognize their own beauty, both inside and out. An estimated 8 million Americans have an eating disorder. Seven million of those are young women, and more and more of them are girls. Girls are increasingly growing dissatisfied with their bodies, trying to change them and fit into some image or mold of perfection that is impossible to achieve. Where are they getting this from? The answer is clear: their moms, sisters, friends, frenemies, television, movies, magazines, and every other media outlet imaginable. When you open a magazine or watch a movie, what kind of girls do you see? Skinny ones! Impossibly perfect girls with immaculate bodies. Everywhere they look, girls are inundated with carefully airbrushed, highly inaccurate images of the female body. It's no wonder they feel something's wrong with them! In this down-to-earth, reassuring, and fun book, Katherine calls for a new way of seeing what is beautiful. Packed with informative facts, moving personal anecdotes from Katherine's life, and the voices of other Rock What You've Got women, her book celebrates the female form, whatever the size, and inspires girls to ROCK WHAT YOU'VE GOT!

Why did your life turn out this way? Who are the most important people in your world? What would you do differently, if you had the chance? Ever since you were a child, you have been writing your life script. You use fragments of story to weave your own personal narrative. The parts in your script are acted by people around you. Some of the oldest stories in the world are the ones called myths. The characters in them are easy to recognize: the princess, the hero, the good mother, the wise old man. These characters are based on universal figures called ‘archetypes’. LifeWorks introduces the twelve major archetypes, with examples from books and films. For each figure, there is a story, followed by points to consider and tasks to perform. You use classic stories and archetypal figures to compose your own life script. LifeWorks is a practical handbook which combines insights from psychology and anthropology. You will learn how to identify relationship patterns and life themes. Stories and exercises help you to develop your own personal mythology.

In diesem beeindruckenden Bildband versammelt die Fotografin Kate T. Parker mehr als 175 Aufnahmen von Mädchen im Alter von 5 bis 18 Jahren. Sie porträtiert abenteuerlustige, freche und neugierige, aber auch ruhige, nachdenkliche und kreative Mädchen. Eines haben sie alle gemeinsam: Sie sind authentisch und mutig genug, sich vor der Kamera so zu zeigen, wie sie wirklich sind: wild, frei und wunderbar! Ihre Aufnahmen beweisen, dass wahre Schönheit nichts mit einer bestimmten Körperform zu tun hat, nichts damit, ob man lächelt, seine Haare frisiert oder sich hübsch zurechtgemacht hat. Dieser unvergessliche Fotoband sprengt alle Stereotype und zeigt, dass Mädchen alles sein können, was sie wollen – solange sie sie selbst sein dürfen.

Das schwere Los der Leichtigkeit

Vom Kampf mit dem eigenen Körper

Portia de Rossi wog nur noch 38 Kilogramm, als sie am Set einer Hollywood-Produktion zusammenbrach. Nach außen hin war sie blond, schlank und schön, glamourös und erfolgreich. Doch innerlich war sie fast tot. Sie beschreibt unaufgeregt und eindringlich, wie der Druck Hollywoods, dünn zu sein, in Kombination mit ihrer geheim gehaltenen Homosexualität dazu führte, dass sie sich in ihrer Haut nie wohlfühlte und immer tiefer in die Magersucht hineinrutschte. Das Abnehmen wurde für sie zur einzigen Möglichkeit, Macht und Kontrolle über ihr Leben zu haben, bis es zu einer Krankheit wurde, die sie beinahe tötete und ihre Familie zerstörte. In ungewöhnlich offenen, mutigen Worten erzählt de Rossi mit erzählerischem Feingefühl ihre Geschichte und lässt uns tief in ihre Seele und ihr Leben als Hollywoodstar blicken. Sie lässt uns die verquere Logik ihres täglichen Strebens nach Perfektion verstehen und die Anstrengung wertschätzen, die sie zur Überwindung ihrer Probleme aufwenden musste. Eine erschreckende und zugleich hoffnungsvolle Geschichte für alle, die auf Kriegsfuß mit sich selbst oder ihrem Körper stehen.
