Do you want to be A MERMAID or a WHALE?
Just a few minutes ago, I've came across with this story posted on someone's wall in Facebook. A very interesting story with a very strong message to convey and I want to share it with all of you. This is to empower women who feels ugly because they're fat. Think again, re-evaluate yourself and read this article. This sure will help you feel a waay lot better. Curves are definitely beautiful on a woman but health is more important than weight.
So here's the story:
Recently in large French city, a poster featuring a young, thin, and tanned woman appeared in the window of a gym. The poster read:
THIS SUMMER DO YOU WANT TO BE A MERMAID OR A WHALE?
A middle aged woman, whose physical characteristics did not match those of the woman on the poster, responded publicly to the question posed by the gym.
To Whom It May Concern:
Whales are always surrounded by friends (dolphins, sea lions, curious humans). They have an active sex life, they get pregnant and have adorable baby whales. They have a wonderful time with dolphins stuffing themselves with shrimp. They play and swim in the seas, seeing wonderful places like Patagonia, the Barren Sea and the coral reefs of Polynesia . Whales are wonderful singers and have even recorded CDs. They are incredible creatures and virtually have no predators other than humans. They are loved, protected and admired by almost everyone in the world.
Besides that, mermaids don’t exist. If they did exist, they would be lining up outside the offices of Argentinean psychoanalysts due to identity crises. Are we fish or human?
They don’t have a sex life because they kill men who get close to them and not to mention how could they have sex? Therefore they don’t have kids either. Let’s not forget to mention who wants to get close to a girl who smells like a fish store?
The choice is perfectly clear to me; I want to be a whale.
P.S. We are in an age when media puts into our heads the idea that only skinny people are beautiful, but I prefer to enjoy an ice cream with my kids, a good dinner with a man who makes me shiver and a coffee with my friends. With time we gain weight because we accumulate so much information and wisdom in our heads that when there is no more room it distributes out to the rest of our bodies. So we aren’t heavy, we are enormously cultured, educated and happy.
Beginning today, when I look at my butt in the mirror I will think, my gosh, look how smart I am!
How about you? Do you want to be a mermaid or a whale?
