OK so yes its Saturday… Which means I am a bit late with five minute Friday..oops!
But I am determined to do it anyway, try and keep up with it you know – flex the old grey matter 😀
Fridays word is – real
This word can be interpreted in so many ways…but where will my brain take it I wonder…😏
Ready, set, go.
Growing up I had a real problem with food.
In fact I had anorexia, reaching my lowest weight of 4 and half stone.
I was hospitalised.
I had a real body image issue at age 10.
I needed a healthy dose of reality.
It took me a long time to realise the truth about body image.
The reality is that so many people suffer from a poor body image.
What we need is to display to women, men, girls and boys what a real body looks like.
The above photo is what I think people view a real body to be.
Peoples perceptions are blinkered by the photo shopped realities that adorn the magazine’s and billboards.
But real bodies have imperfections
I have most of these things, but I consider myself a real woman, with a a body that I haven’t changed to fit society.
We are really women no matter what shape or size we are, imperfections and all.
Its our imperfections that make us real.
Why photo shop reality?
We must keep being our real selves, not who the world tells us to be.
Be the real you.
You are really beautiful.
Figures my brain would go to body image 😊
Have a wicked weekend,
