This morning, as I was getting ready for the day (i.e. showering & combing my hair, which is about the extent of my beautification process these days), I started thinking about sizes. Specifically about the unfortunate names of our clothing sizes:
Extra Small. Small. Medium. Large. Extra Large. Extra Extra Large.
Who wants to be an “Extra Extra Large?” Or even a “Medium??”
In this culture of body image distortion, fueled by the media, the last thing we need are sizes that scream: “You are large! And you, loser, are extra, extra large!!”
In the spirit of loving my body, I decided to come up with some new names for our sizes:
- B for Beautiful
- D for Dazzling
- G for Gorgeous
- R for Ravishing
- S for Stunning
So in the future, when I end up with a size medium, I’ll just remember that I am a size G for Gorgeous!
Because we’re all beautiful.
Happy Friday friends!
