So my cousin Anne Tuttle Brown was on the radio this morning for the program “A Woman’s View” with Amanda Dixon. Eventually they started talking about plastic surgery and the desire to change our bodies. It was during this discussion that Anne mentioned my post The Only happy FAT woman in America.
She said my motivation to change my body was not because I hate myself but because I love who I am and want to be healthy. She talked about how I can look in the mirror and see a beautiful woman despite being overweight. Amanda Dixon asked for the name of the blog and Anne told her. Amanda then said the blog sounded like “genius!”.
It was an exciting moment! (I know it is just Utah radio but it made me feel like a celebrity for a couple seconds!) It is especially exciting because I love Amanda Dixon and ate up her book called “Wake Up to a Happier Life”. I related to it because it is about her journey from her unhappy legal career to a fulfilling job in radio. As all you loyal blog readers know, I faced a similar career challenge several years ago. Making the decision to jump into the unknown, searching for happiness, has made all the difference.
Anyway, they mentioned the blog and spoke highly of it. Thanks Anne for paying me such a compliment! I love writing this blog and it is my hope that it inspires just a few people, or at least makes them laugh. If it does so for one person then it is well worth the effort!
