What is human beauty? I don’t know that anyone really looks at store window mannequins as the body types that we aspire to be, but they do communicate a distortion from who we really are and what we really look like. I know that guys are supposed to be impervious to this, but I’ve never really liked my own body shape. And the odd thing about my illness over the past year was that I really like losing my gut when I lost all that weight. I wasn’t so keen on the fact that I’d also lost my ability to walk and support my own weight, but from the waist up I was pretty pleased. Weird. Truth is we need to celebrate who we are in whatever body shape we dwell in and see the amazing beauty in that. Happy Monday.
