We have spent too much time loathing ourselves, wasting our energy getting mad at our reflections.
We've missed too many events, too many dates, worn too many shapeless bags to hide ourselves, stayed in too many nights afraid of what people might think of the weight we've gained, sucked in our bellies too many times for photographs... sucked in our real authentic selves.
We have tried to tame, manipulate, and control our bodies the way we have been bulldozing the Earth.
It's time we release our bellies, allow our bodies to be, allow Nature to do Her thing, and let these miraculous pieces of Earth we inhabit to be. To simply be. Exactly as they are.
Because they are soft and luscious. Because they are our vessels. Because they are alive. Because they ARE.
