Standing before my mirror naked is an exercise I do to examine my flaws, learn to accept them and to remind myself how lucky I am. I am a Ciswoman*. Born with the ability to bring forth life and be recognized as a woman. I have been blessed with five children, so I am also what the damndable urban dictionary and the high and mighty human race elitist have coined ‘breeder‘. I may not be Christian but I do believe the Goddess blessed me to be the vessel of these five children because the world would be a less bright place without them. But as I stand here, looking at my scars from surgery, seeming my breasts, sliding my hands down to my pelvis and tracing the c-section scars to my hips which bore those amazing children, I am also reminded about my own blessing. To be born into privilege, one that these days is becoming a burden at times.
OMG we have had such a mild winter and I think we all forgot that this time of the year is the coldest. I am thanking my lucky stars my mom sent me this cute cocoa kit for my Kuerig and an awesome group of recipes to go with it. I was going to share some and then I stumbled onto this infographic and it has many of them recipes though slightly varied, she sent me.
