Mermaid or Whale October 16, 2011

A while back, at the entrance of a gym, there was a picture of a very thin and  beautiful woman. The caption was “This summer, do you want to be a mermaid or a  whale?”
The story goes, a woman (of clothing size unknown) answered the  following way:
“Dear people, whales are always surrounded by friends (dolphins, seals, curious humans), they are sexually active and raise their  children with great tenderness. They entertain like crazy with dolphins and  eat lots of prawns. They swim all day and travel to fantastic places like  Patagonia, the Barents Sea or  the coral reefs of Polynesia. They sing incredibly well and sometimes  even are on cds. They are impressive and dearly loved animals, which everyone  defend and admires.
Mermaids do not exist.
But if they existed,  they would line up to see a psychologist because of a problem of split  personality: woman or fish? They would have no sex life and could not bear  children. Yes, they would be lovely, but lonely and sad. And, who wants a  girl that smells like fish by his side?
Without a doubt, I’d rather be a whale.
At a time when the media tells us that only thin is beautiful, I  prefer to eat ice cream with my kids, to have dinner with my husband, to eat and  drink and have fun with my friends.
We women, we gain weight because we  accumulate so much wisdom and knowledge that there isn’t enough space in our  heads, and it spreads all over our bodies. We are not fat, we are greatly  cultivated. Every time I see my curves in the mirror, I tell myself: “How  amazing am I ?! ”
