Day 14: Mirror, Mirror

30Lday14-2

Compliment yourself on your least favorite physical feature.  Find the beauty in it and describe it. I have a love/hate relationship with my thighs... thanks to Beyonce and her damn thigh gap. No matter how much weight I lose, no matter how much I squat, lunge, run or skip, they remind me that they are here to stay. But I suppose it's better than having nothing.

For the past day or two, my twitter timeline has been on HIGH. Topics from colorism, to Ferguson, to domestic violence and to of course rape have all been discussed and after unplugging from twitter for the day, I returned to a "She wasn't even rape-worthy," tweet. Now this isn't the first time I've seen … [Read more...]
