"I believe a body is meant to be used. I believe our spirits, our minds, our beauty is meant to be used. And like the Velveteen Rabbit, when we use our bodies, when we offer our wombs as a vessel for new life, when we offer our breasts to our babies, when we run and play and jump and dance, when we love our bodies by using them, they get worn out. They get shabby and wrinkled and dirty. Gravity takes its toll, as do the hours basking in the sun. This is all well and good. This makes for a full life. This is a life well lived. This is a body well lived; a body well loved." - Karly Randolph Pitman, FirstOurselves.com and our interview, Simple Self Love.
