I came across a great link as I mindlessly perused FaceBook today while eating a sandwich at my desk. If I can’t make it out of the office for lunch I can at least waste a few minutes while I eat, right? Anyway. This link/article/blog post was so beautiful! I saw it on a friend’s post here and another post there and after about the 4th or 5th link to it decided it was probably worth the time (which I clearly value as I spent a good chunk of my lunch today on the FaceBook). It’s about a woman’s path to accepting her body after childbirth. It was a beautiful reminder to me that my body MADE PEOPLE. That’s kind of a big deal. Things change. It’s not all about weight. Things change. Like a lot. If you’ve had babies, you’re with me. If you haven’t, I’ll spare you. We all need to give ourselves a little break and a pat on the back for the amazing things our bodies can do! And respect that line between encouraging a friend to get back to where they feel good about themselves and making them feel lazy & fat because they haven’t lost all the “baby weight.” And by “a friend” I mean ourselves. And by “ourselves” I mean me. I need to be nicer to me. And I’m guessing you need to be nicer to you too.
