Just a Thought for Today

A woman is often measured by the things she cannot control. She is measured by the way her body curves or desn't curve.

By where she is flat or straight or round. She is measured by 36-24-36 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 as every woman knows, measurements are only statistics, adn statistics lie.
