Monday Means . . .

Drop Everything And Read

Last March, as I was contemplating intention and my plan to "live my best life," I had a eureka-moment (you can read about that here), which led me down a wellness path.  I set Tuesdays aside for wellness-related posts here on the blog -- so I can share what I'm learning with you.   After a rather inconsistent summer, I'll be getting back to more posts on wellness - and fitness - next week.  (Watch this space!)

Another lily opening in my garden pond -- and absolutely nothing to do with today's post. Or maybe it does. You decide!

In the meantime, here's something for you . . . 
Related to wellness.  
And aging.  
And body image.  
And the wearing of swimsuits in public.  
And eating.

A couple of weeks ago, I stumbled across this Most Excellent Essay written by author Laura Lippman . . . about turning 60.  And accepting our (gorgeous) bodies and eating what(ever the hell) we want and (finally) accepting ourselves.  It's a bit of a long read (it will take about 15 minutes), but it's empowering and eye-opening -- and well worth the investment of your time.  (And it's written by Laura Lippman, so you can trust it to be highly readable and compelling!)

Go on.  Read it!
And let me know what you think once you do.
