I understand that there is a lot of money to be made by the companies that nip and tuck, by the companies that advertise for them, by the gyms, personal trainers, dietitians, supplement companies, specialty food industries, diet programs and so on. I understand where their motivation lies. They prey on our innate need to be accepted and liked. It is unforgivable that the media is dragging us all down.
Wouldn't we all be better off if we liked our selves for who we are? Wouldn't someone be more apt to take care of their body if they were taught that it is a miracle vehicle to get your true being from A to B? We need to celebrate who we are not what we appear to be. I pray that I can get that message through to my beautiful, smart, talented, funny little people.
As I move forward I will continue to celebrate my people, I will celebrate me and I will celebrate you because you are my friend and would be if I met you with (or with out) a blindfold on.
