This week I want to talk about something we carry with us everywhere, but hardly ever think about. Unless we’re complaining about it! Or pinching and prodding it.
Spring is here and as soon as it rolls into summer we can all bet that every advertisement will be about bikinis, losing weight, and getting rid of cellulite, blemishes and any other perceived imperfection a body can have. In conversations with friends, the topics will be “I need to lose 10lb or I have to get rid of these stretch marks before I can show my legs.” And I want to head this off at the pass, so to speak. I know that the way the media landscape is, this post may be the only positive thing you read about your body this whole season. Even ads and organizations claiming to be body positive resort to tactics that trick us into feeling bad, all so we’ll buy the latest bra, skin cream, or eyeshadow.
