On bad body image.

I love Cathy Thorne cartoons.

You might recall seeing this one.

They are always so...right on. And simple, which I think is really fantastic. She conveys so much with so little, and somehow manages to get a chuckle out of ya, too. Total talent, if you ask me.

The particular cartoon at right is obviously brilliant, and I'm sure something we can all relate to. No matter how hard you work in the gym, no matter how many pounds you drop or what size clothes you wear, the truth is, if you don't believe in yourself...if you don't believe in your own beautiful, strong and smart self, then you're still one step behind yourself.

It's hard to look in the mirror and love everything you see. You are very human in that respect. But at some point, you have to look in the mirror and admit that what you see is what you get. And that's a very good thing, actually.

It's good to be different. It's good to have "flaws" because those "flaws" aren't always a bad thing. They are simply just signs of our unique and individual selves.  If we all looked like Barbie and Ken, boring would that be?

Love what you get. Love it with all of your heart. After all, you only get it once.
