A great friend posted this brilliant poem on FACEBOOK. It was too good NOT to share:
Three good friends went for a swim. The one who was fat wished she was thin. The one who was curvy wished she was clever. The one who was clever wished she swam better. The really great swimmer wished she was witty. The one who was witty wished she was pretty. All three friends thought the other two were just fine. If only they could let their own bright light shine. So throw on your swimsuit if you're fat or you're thin. Enjoy fun and friendship .... love the skin that you're in!
Watercolor painting and poem by Rachel Toll. of Devon, England.
Does this poem hit a nerve with you?
The grass is always greener in some other pasture, we know that for sure.
What are your comments on this image? And the words in Rachel’s poem?
Loved the painting and message of the poem! I will be kinder to myself when I try on swimsuits this week! Perfect timing!
