Here we go Hart Beat, on to the fourth thing that I’ve learned since turning twenty-five. I would like to say that this one came directly from me but, I have to give credit where credit is due. This lovely little sentence actually comes via by brilliant boyfriend, Pedro. Apparently he doesn’t remember saying it but, what can I say, he did.
4. A woman’s body is like a rubik’s cube.
Introduction disclaimer: I don’t talk about of body stuff her on the blog. One, because this is not a food or health blog and two, because I think that body stuff is such a sensitive topic with so many woman that I never want to impose on anyones inner thoughts. My general opinion about women’s bodies and our feelings around them is this: Women of the world! We have bodies! They are amazing and they take us to work everyday, allow us to laugh, and are the perfect structures to put all of our clothes on!
Aside from that I really hate it when women talk about their bodies (in a negative or positive light). As long as your body is working (see criteria above) then whatever comes after is a moot point. I’ve had a lot of female roommates in my life, and for each and every one, including all that commons eating in college, I’ve made a conscious effort to not talk about what food we’re eating or not eating. I don’t care that you had three hamburgers for dinner last night, I don’t care if you gave up gluten because it makes you fit into your party dress. Good for you! Now let’s move on to better and more important topics.
All this being said, when Pedro said “A woman’s body is like a rubik’s cube” it made me stop. Why? Because our bodies are like rubik’s cubes. Everybody’s different, every body is different, and it takes trying different combinations to look and feel your best. Even more so, once you do figure out what works for your body then there you go! Rubrik’s cube solved.
