By a show of hands, I want to know how many in blog land are beauty contest winners?
Ok, now how many of us would like to be? Or, at least, look like one? Come on, truth now. i am jumping up and down, waving both hands frantically.
Have any of you guys not done something for fear of not looking or acting the way you think others might expect you too?
The list of way we allow other peoples opinions limit ourselves is endless, isn’t it?
As you know, Nikki is dieting. Sigh. She’s gorgeous, but society seems to think that if we don’t look a certain way then there is something wrong with us. Well, I’m telling you, there ISN’T. In fact, it proves that there is something wrong with society.
So we are going to start a plankton support group to share and be positive towards one another as we grow in our subinessness (I don’t think that’s a word, but I don’t care. It is now a Breeism). We will also share ways we can help each other.
Oh, for you who don’t know what I mean by plankton.. I am an alpha sub which means according to John, is equivalent to a Jumbo Shrimp. Those sweet little critters who are trained, cared for, and loved by me are my plankton. Every one different, beautiful and so important.. No matter how small we think we are.
Now, only ONE rule…..Thou Shalt Not Speak Ill of Thyself!
THAT is gonna be a tough one for many of us, myself included. I know my flaws better than anyone and have no problem in pointing them out before any one beats me to it. In a way, it takes away their power to hurt me. But, in fact, I never consider the possibility that maybe they just don’t care! What? The world doesn’t revolve around me? I am shocked!!!!!
So… to start off with… that nasty D word.
I love how Korey Mae Johnson expresses her real feelings when she is passionate about something so, in taking of her example, I say this…
F*** DIETS (John forbade me to spell it out… But the above illustration shows exactly what I am saying)
I mean, come on…. when we are told we aren’t allowed to have something isn’t that exactly what we want? And, if you are anything like me, I have the will power of a marble. If it’s chocolate…. I want it. If it’s carbs.. I want it. If its on the do-not-eat-and-its gonna-kill-you-one-day list…. yeah, I want it.
Any comments so far?
