In honor of Mother’s Day, I urge you to think about how frickin’ crazy amazing and mind blowing the act of birth actually is. Too often we think of our bodies as projects to be sculpted and perfected into aesthetically pleasing mannequins designed for the latest trends. Blasphemy! Your body is actually a miraculous machine, and no time is this more obvious than pregnancy.
I’m not recommending you go out and get pregnant (obviously), but I do think that pondering the miracle of birth can help put things in perspective. Why pinch, starve, and spend time hating something that could one day give you the most incredible gift in the universe?
