I dropped you, I picked you up. I’m telling you how dirty you are, and that I’m still going to do you!
It is okay to be at a place of struggle. Struggle is just another word for growth. Even the most evolved beings find themselves in a place of struggle now and then. In fact, struggle is a sure sign to them that they are expanding; it is their indication of real and important progress. The only one who doesn’t struggle is the one who doesn’t grow. So if you are struggling right now, see it as a terrific sign - celebrate your struggle.
That day for me was December 23rd 2012.
That’s when I found out I was pregnant with my first baby!
The next day, which will change it even more - is whatever day this month my son decides to make his entrance into this world!!!
I’ve got two daughters who will have to make their way in this skinny-obsessed world and it worries me, because I don’t want them to be empty-headed, self-obsessed, emaciated clones; I’d rather they were independent, interesting, idealistic, kind, opinionated, original, funny - a thousand things, before ‘thin’. And frankly, I’d rather they didn’t give a gust of stinking chihuahua flatulence whether the woman standing next to them has fleshier knees than they do. Let my girls be Hermiones, rather than Pansy Parkinsons. Let them never be Stupid Girls.
A lot of changing has been taking place…
