"I worked at a factory until I was 40. Then one day I asked my boss for more vacation, and he said 'no.' So I went home and told my husband: 'That man is getting on my nerves! I'm going to college tomorrow!' I was the oldest person there, but I made it through and got a good job with The City. Then a few months ago, somebody walked up to my desk, and said: 'Why are you still working? You're 75 years old!' So I walked over to my boss, and said 'I'm retiring tomorrow!'" — with Nona Mahadi, HONY
Loving your body is a revolutionary act. There are a lot of forces at work conspiring to dampen your self image. Your self acceptance, and love, smashes the distorted reality being plied as "beauty".
