There's a lot of stigma around the female body, particularly in the way we, as females, are 'suppose' to view ourselves. We're meant to aspire to skinny (but not too skinny) with just the right amount of curves (not too many) in only the right places (careful where) – it's a mind-fuck! The female form, for centuries, has been seen as weak, frail, passive. But we're women – we grow small humans for 9 months, birth them, feed them, carry them... all with our bodies. These strong, resilient bodies are neither frail nor weak. They're made to withstand this life and all it has to throw at us. We're women and we're strong.

If you know me, you know I'm a big lover off all things lists – to-do lists, shopping lists, daily lists, goal lists... the list goes on. But now the list business is expanding to bigger and bolder things; my bucket list. This is always something that's grown inside my head and never made it onto paper. There are things I've always known I've wanted to do, see, achieve in my lifetime but they've been fanciful and put on the back-burner because, well, I've got the rest of my life to do them. And that's just not good enough. I don't want to be waiting around to do the things that I really want to get around to doing... this is life and I'm no longer going to wait around to live it.
