Last night I shared on the LittleOwlCrunchyMomma Facebook page that I was very nervous about the airing of The Doctors TV Show that I was a part because I haven't washed my hair with shampoo in five years...
I realize that I need to explain something.
I am not nervous about how people will perceive me. I am not nervous about making a fool of myself. I am not even nervous about whether or not people with think I have ugly hair.....
This is about something much bigger.
In many ways the very title of this show stands directly against everything I hold dear. The very idea that a woman should "fear words" like "bad butt", "bad boobs", "bad hair"... makes me sick to my stomach.
Is this really what we care about as a culture? At the end of the day, is this what we stand for as a society? Is this what we are comfortable with our young girls seeing and believing? That every woman has parts of her body that she should be ashamed of because other people find them unattractive?
Is this what BEAUTY means?
What lengths will we go to fit somebody else's idea of beauty? How much will we cut, poke, paint, and reshape our bodies until we think we have done enough?
Why are we so afraid of stretching, of sagging, of changing as we travel this road called life? Why are we so afraid of embracing the uniqueness of our stories and the vessels that we live them through?
Love your body. It has given you so much.
Love yourself. You are beautiful.
Think of how much better the world would be, if rather than focusing on our physical "imperfections", we focused on what our strong bodies, strong minds, and strong spirits are capable of?
