For the past four and a half months, I have had my address out on the internet as an invitation for anyone to send me their blades so they can take a step forward towards getting better.

Moral of the story: Do something new every day to make your life seem longer and richer.
I have always been a “bigger girl” as my parents always called me.
My Mom never understood my size, or my bust line especially. She’s a tiny little person who eats potato skins for dinner and never gains a pound.
She devoted YEARS and YEARS of her life to making sure I realized that I was not…

It deserves to be felt.
It deserves to be known.
