Who doesn’t want to be their ideal weight, size, shape, etc.? If you’re human I’m sure you have succumbed to this desire a time or two….or maybe more. We all have. Why is it that we struggle so hard to be something we are not? Why not be happy and healthy the way we are?
Because we listen to others verses ourselves.
We believe what others say verses believing in ourselves………………….Probably.
I am no spring chicken but I am far from one foot in the grave. I am no longer 20 years old and it is not fair to compare myself to that person or to strive to be her anymore. I do not have the metabolism of a 20 year old anymore and I definitely can see the signs of gravity and shifting in places that didn’t even exist when I was 20. So why put yourself thru the turmoil of trying to attain what once was? Why not be happy with who you are? I am proud of my size 12 and shake the chunky monkey like I was a skinny bitch still (*laughing* this is a dance probably better done in private). I am jiggly in places that I wish were firmer but seriously, would I give up that awesome plate of Italian food and desert just to be a little less juggly? Probably not because I LOVE food and skinny girls generally do not eat (if you are past 30 and a skinny girl naturally, awesome for you and genetics), especially a big juicy burger and fries…..and I am not willing to trade food for a size 2. Now don’t get me wrong, I work out. I do 3-5 hours cardio a week and that is for health reasons (my body is trying to break from the inside out but that is a different blog post) and so that I can enjoy food and not be a complete hippopotamus. Seriously, with the way I eat…..I would be rocking a little more than a little chunky monkey. But I digress. I can honestly say that I can look myself in the mirror and not be horrified by what I see. I like me, for the me that I am. I don’t have to be model beautiful, a size 2 and have flawless skin. I am not perfect and I was never meant to be and I do not expect myself to be. What fun would it be if we were all perfect and looked the same…the people watching would suck! We are all awesome, divine creatures no matter what….unless you’re ugly on the inside or a serial killer…..then you have lost your awesome status and I am sure I will write a blog about you in the future.
So long story short….rock you jiggly bit and shake your money maker like you don’t care. Well, if you live near me please do it clothed or at least shut the drapes…a little dignity didn’t kill anyone and I will promise if you live near me to extend the same courtesy…..well unless your my husband because then I’m sure you’ve seen the chunky monkey, jiggly bit show and it probably doesn’t faze you anymore.
Be proud of who you are. Don’t lower your head because you are not the idea of what someone else finds awesome, attractive or desirable. We are all awesome, attractive (in our own unique ways) and desirable (to someone). Don’t let what other think or believe determine what you think or believe. Pull your inner awesome out and wear it proud. Remember, we are all divine!
