Does anyone else get a sense that things are perhaps going in a not so great direction?

Perhaps it’s because I’m raising girls. Perhaps it’s because I am a girl. Perhaps it’s because everywhere I turn right now someone I love is feeling the need to change their already perfect body.

In every direction I hear from friends, from all different circles, who weigh themselves daily. Who beat themselves up over the cake batter spoons they licked with their children or take-away they shared with their family. These truly gorgeous women feel unhappy simply because the number on the scales isn’t what they believe it should be.

What saddens me the most is that these women are healthy. They feel great and everyone else, including me, thinks they look great.

If only scales measured health and wellbeing.

If only they measured goodness and kindness and compassion.

If only they measured patience and love.

If only they measured the things that really matter, the things that make up a person. Perhaps many women would be getting their day off to a much brighter start.

Health and happiness my loves, let that be the goal and guide. There is no perfect shape and no perfect size. Love who you are and enjoy the choices you make.

You are much more than a number.
