The Others

Many may think that being skinny is ideal, beautiful even. I often get “you’re so skinny, do you eat?” Let me tell you something, that is not always a compliment. Not everyone starves themselves in hopes of staying at a certain size. So let me answer your question, yes. We do eat! In a world where everyone is trying tirelessly to lose weight, there are those…. the few, the forgotten, the unheard, the “others” who try to gain weight. Those who may not want/ choose to be skinny. The ones who struggle just as much as you do. I believe that calling someone skinny is just as offensive as calling someone fat. People are aware of their body types. They do not need any constant reminders. So the next time you feel the need to comment on someone’s figure, stop and think. You never know what someone else is going through. And your “compliments” aren’t always welcomed! #BodyImage #Size #Beauty #Mindful

New levels new devils

I don’t understand why people feel the need to say “wait until the terrible twos hit” Excuse me…!!!! But just in case you did not know, the months leading up to those trying toddler years are just as difficult. I for one would not call them a vacation. “Oh, but that’s nothing just wait until they can move around” Newsflash, new levels new devils, none is easier. Each stage comes with its own unique set of challenges so please stop comparing your stage to that of another parent.
