This week I wrote a post that was personal to me. It was on one of those subjects that you could feel bubbling around in your head, until you had to get your thoughts down into some sort of form.
My post was about the issues women of all ages have with their own body image, if you'd like to read it click here.
I wrote it to strengthen my own quiet voice that being a different size to your 18 year old self, or your neighbour, or a supermodel is fine. The important thing is that you are healthy and happy in your own body - however it may look.
But oh my word, I got the most beautiful comments and messages after writing it. People read MY words and they understood. My words had meaning. A few beautiful and wonderful ladies said that I inspired them! Little me, in my teeny tiny blog, wrote something that put a smile on someone's face, gave them strength, made them see an alternative. That's mind blowing!
I'm touched that people read what I write, I'm touched that people enjoyed it so much they took time to comment (and this weekend I will reply to each and everyone of you!), I'm touched that people may now take a few moments when they are next on holiday to take a "jump" photo...and not delete it straight away!
Have a wonderful weekend - I'm looking forward to niece and nephew cuddles in Northampton, a dance off to 80's classics at an open air revival gig, and a sing along to The Lion King stage show in Southampton...just a normal weekend then!
