Amen to that!

My Friend Pat, posted this on Facebook, and I recall it making the rounds a year or so back (pre my blog), and I loved it then, and love it now, so want to repost this as a mini blog today!  Thanks Pat for sharing….and then subsequently, Sue, Lisa and Jayne who also posted this!  🙂


A while back, at the entrance of a gym, there was a picture of a very thin and beautiful woman. The caption was “This summer, do you want to be a mermaid or a whale?  “The story goes, a woman (of clothing size unknown) answered the following way:“Dear people, whales are always surrounded by friends (dolphins, seals, curious humans), they are sexually active and raise their children with great tenderness.
They entertain like crazy with dolphins and eat lots of prawns. They swim all day and travel to fantastic places like Patagonia, the Barents Sea or the coral reefs of Polynesia.
They sing incredibly well and sometimes even are on cds. They are impressive and dearly loved animals, which everyone defend and admires.Mermaids do not exist.But if they existed, they would line up to see a psychologist because of a problem of split personality: woman or fish?
They would have no sex life and could not bear children.
Yes, they would be lovely, but lonely and sad.
And, who wants a girl that smells like fish by his side?Without a doubt, I’d rather be a whale.At a time when the media tells us that only thin is beautiful, I prefer to eat ice cream with my kids, to have dinner with my husband, to eat and drink and have fun with my friends.We women, we gain weight because we accumulate so much wisdom and knowledge that there isn’t enough space in our heads, and it spreads all over our bodies.
We are not fat, we are greatly cultivated.
Every time I see my curves in the mirror, I tell myself: “How amazing am I ?! “
(The woman in the picture is French model, Tara Lynn)
Amen to that!  Plus, pretty sure this woman wouldn’t be called a “whale” by anyone…and quite frankly, whom when sitting, doesn’t have a pouch anyway?  Well, I mean most people.  Clearly no longer Demi Moore.  Plus, I’m much more obsessed with her soft skin…whatever is she using? 🙂

  1. Great blog! And, I too, noticed what looks to be incredibly soft skin!! I’ll have to practice sitting in a chair like that cuz after all, I already have the rolls to match! HEY!! Maybe I could Louiza, the Polish model!!

  2. Couldn’t have said it better. Celebrate your curves and be proud of them. We beautiful people know who we are.
