Say Yes To Whales

My daughter emailed me the following story.  I enjoyed it so much I had to share it - I hope everyone hasn't already seen it.

WOMAN'S THINKING  FOR  A HAPPY  LIFE.....
Recently, in a large city in a poster featuring a young, thin and tan woman appeared in the window of a gym. It said, "This summer, do you want to be a mermaid or a whale?"

A middle-aged woman, whose physical characteristics did not match those of the woman on the poster, responded publicly to the question posed by the gym.


To Whom It May Concern,
Whales are always surrounded by friends (dolphins, sea lions, curious humans). They have an active sex life, get pregnant and have adorable baby whales. They have a wonderful time with dolphins stuffing themselves with shrimp. They play and swim in the seas, seeing wonderful places like Patagonia, the Bering Sea and the coral reefs of Polynesia. Whales are wonderful singers and have even recorded CDs.
They are incredible creatures and virtually have no predators other than humans. They are loved, protected and admired by almost everyone in the world.

Mermaids don't exist. If they did exist, they would be lining up outside the offices of Argentinean psychoanalysts due to identity crisis. Fish or human? They don't have a sex life because they kill men who get close to them, not to mention how could they have sex? Just look at them ... where is IT? Therefore, they don't have kids either. Not to mention, who wants to get close to a girl who smells like a fish store?

The choice is perfectly clear to me: I want to be a whale.

P.S. We are in an age when media puts into our heads the idea that only skinny people are beautiful, but I prefer to enjoy an ice cream with my kids, a good dinner with a man who makes me shiver, and a piece of chocolate with my friends. With time, we gain weight because we accumulate so much information and wisdom in our heads that when there is no more room, it distributes out to the rest of our bodies.
So we aren't heavy, we are enormously cultured, educated and happy.
Beginning today, when I look at my butt in the mirror I will think, ¨Good grief, look how smart I am!¨


So now, my beautiful friends, next time you look in the mirror, please see reflected your wisdom, your life's experience, your beauty and intelligence, and most of all, your happiness with yourself.  Because big or small, we are all daughters of our Heavenly Father, and we need to find happiness in what makes each of us unique.  And when next we meet, let's make sure we enjoy some chocolate together.

  1. I know, I loved that story! However, I DON'T want to be a whale, LOL! I for sure felt like one tonight doing my hip hop abs dvd! But yes, I'd love to enjoy some chocolate together :) By the way, Mia wanted to talk to you this morning, but it was much to early to call you. She keeps talking about going to your house...
