Life is often unfair, and I have lived long enough to accept that. But I cannot accept or excuse gratuitous cruelty. That, my dear Readers, really sets me off on a red-haired rant.
As an image consultant and personal style coach, I spend a great deal of my time teaching women how to dress the bodies they have, not the bodies they once had or would like to have. Weight is an emotionally-charged issue for most women. (I always keep a box of tissues handy.) Working from the outside in, my goal is to help them see themselves in a new way and, hopefully, to love and accept what they see.
And then along comes one of those cruel swipes delivered via the internet.
A 37-year-old anchor/reporter at WKBT-TV in La Crosse, Wisconsin, was the recipient, and the subject was her weight.
Yesterday, on the air, she took on her critic in a full, frontal assault, delivered with strength, sincerity and incredible grace.
This rates a big "ATTA GIRL" !!
Enjoy! I know I did!
I just had to share.....
