So Awesome!

I’m so glad this is being printed in a major magazine as Sports Illustrated.  I plan on buying the magazine as a keepsake.  I’m not concerned that she’s not being featured by SI because they could have rejected the ad.  They could have told the company that she is not “attractive” and that she “does not fit their standards” or something similar that a lot of magazines already say when presented with similar material.  The presence of “no” and “you are not good enough” is strong in this industry already – but this time they said yes. 😀

Ashley Graham looks fantastic and is wearing a bikini.  We need more models like her on magazine covers, advertisements, TV, film, and so on.  Beauty comes in many more forms than what is shoved down our throats.  I hope this is the first of many changes!

I Can See August Over the Mountian

With July coming to an almost rapid close, it is time to start preparing for back to school, and various Fall adventures.  Before we break out the boots, jeans, sweaters and hoodies, I want to remind you to enjoy the remainder of the month of July but also enjoy all that August has to offer.  July is a very hard month for me and with a very good friend of mine going into major surgery tomorrow morning, I am reminded yet again that life is just too damn short.  One minute you are here complaining because they forgot to add cheese the next you are laid up in a pine box.  Don’t let any moment go by without sharing your joy, love, concern for others.

It’s not too late to rock that bikini, work hard to run that 5k or ask that cute guy out who you work with.  Dive into the possible and expand your expectations.

With enough squats, you two can have thighs just like this carrot (ha!).
