How adorable is this? The best part is... it's true! Being a 'curvy' woman does not make me ugly or undesirable; it gives me dimension (literally). I have beautiful, volumptuous breasts that I wouldn't have if I was thinner. I have a lovely round booty that looks fantastic in nice fitting jeans. I play to my attributes!
Although we measure our waists, chests, arms, and legs with tape measures, what does it really represent? Does the size of my waist determine my worth? No, I will never allow that! The weight of my soul can only be measured by my contributions to those around me and there are no numbers that can be put on that.
Is it really going to matter that I was a size 18 when I die? No. What is going to matter is that I had people who loved and admired me and that my self image was healthy enough to inspire them (even if only a little bit) to love themselves.
