So a few nights ago I discussed where our perspective of beauty has come from and where we hopefully are taking it, thanks for the enlightening comments and perspective as well. Then with the help of your comments and the again always faithful interweb to produce new articles, I again am reminded of what beauty really is. This article nicely elaborates on what we discussed Monday about a beatiful body being a fuctional and capable body and shows us what our thought on the “new” beauty should not be. Bottom line is we cannot allow ourselves to get wrapped up in the motivational posters with super ripped men and women in them and use them to define beauty. Being strong and capable is beauty, ripped folks are beautiful but they aren’t the end all be all. Check out the article and let me know what you think.
Also, a quick shoutout to Nici Watts. She leaves for the Air Force Basic Training today. Nici, we’re all behind you and we know you’ll crush life over there just like you did when you were here. Here’s to the best!
