I just read an article about a woman that meets a man online and they hit it off great then after spending a weekend together without having sex she calls and asks why. Without a second thought he says her body is too wrinkly and cant excite him because he has “spoiled himself” with younger women. He then tries to tell her how she should dress to look younger and hold it all in and tight, like she’s a barbie doll for him to stage. She refuses and says she doesn’t want to speak to or see him again. She then undresses and looks at herself in all her glory. Naked and unashamed she hugs herself and is thankful for her body and for being able to appreciate it for all it has done for her.
This ONE article has changed the way I see myself. How damn powerful was that, right?! My body doesn’t look the way I want it to and it probably never will. I will strive to be healthy but perfect is out of the question. I have nurtured and given life to a healthy baby boy and continue to do all I can to help him grow. I should not shame myself for the extra weight, flabby tummy, and stretch marks that came along with the best thing I’ve ever done.

I can’t think of a specific toy I loved. But a few things that most of memories include are riding my bike or my rollerblades and playing my supernintendo.
