I was looking for something inspirational today, and I found it.
“A WOMAN IS OFTEN MEASURED by the things she cannot control. She is measured by the way her body curves or doesn’t curve, by where she is flat or straight or round. She is measured by 36-24-26 and inches and ages and numbers, by all the outside things that don’t ever add up to who she is on the inside. And so if a woman is to be measured, let her be measured by the things she can control, by who she is and who she is trying to become. Because every woman knows measurements are only statistics and STATISTICS LIE.” – 1994 Nike Campaign Ad
We could also extend this idea to men. Men are measured by how much money they make, what kind of car they drive, what kind of job they hold, how tall they are, how muscular they are…when are we going to realize that none of this matters?
There should be measurements for kindess or for how well and how much a person is able to love. Now, that would be worth measuring.
It’s Thursday – one day away from Friday. Be Yourself – Just do It!
P.S. InPerspire Bingo word of the day: sweat.
Also, you have probably noticed that I am two days behind (thus, the picture) on my gold stars. I will catch up, I promise.
