I don’t remember what inspired this idea. What I do remember, however, is that it was a regular afternoon at work. And that I was jumping with excitement when the thought struck me.
I remember texting all my friends. I wasn’t sure if they’d be up for it. I remember being delighted when many responded positively – they seemed excited. “Sounds fun” were the words many used.
This was a month ago.
My solo trip followed, and then I got busy with work. I received 3 letters.
Last weekend, I decided to step this up. I sent frantic reminders to my friends – and they (enthusiastically) replied with their letters.
Today, I have 12 beautifully written letters – all of which will make you smile.
As women, we share an important relationship with our bodies. There are parts we love, and parts we grow into loving.
This post is an attempt to help us all make peace with our unique body-types, one body part at a time.
I am sure you will relate to these letters, and if not, at least they will make you laugh out loud.
And lastly, the showstopper to this entire piece – do take the time out to read this – it will surely make you laugh.
There were many others who were supposed to write in, but got busy. Maybe, I’ll do a round 2.
Till then, let’s work towards beginning a conversation with the body-parts that exasperate us and those that delight us – just like these 12 incredibly strong and self-aware women have done. And let’s not forget to tell our bodies that we love them.
