Julia threw down some serious awesome in my inbox early in the weekend, and I asked her permission to share. For real.
I just had this hilarious moment where I loved my body and I laughed in the face of anyone who’s ever insinuated I should be anything else. I love being strong! I love this body I’ve been given! So I wrote this & thought you’d like it:
To the industries trying to tell me that a thigh gap & being as skinny as possible is what I should desire most:
I’ll take my strong, thick body any day. Thanks. I prefer strength. My Polish disposition aids me. It tells me: more, more, more. Farther. Faster. Heavier. Stronger. I am a Sequoia and you are the withering brush beneath my shade. I will block you out. & as I become more of myself, you will continue to wither. Ha! I know the warmth of the Son. & if the Son asks me to be a Sequoia, I will open my tree branch arms and accept his will. Why would I wish for anything else?
YESSSS! TODAY IS A GREAT DAY TO LOVE YOURSELF!!!!
Is she the best or what? 🙂
