Body Image: The Most Sexy Thing In The World

The most sexy thing in the world is being alive, confident, active and interesting.

So says Melanie Reid, who has been paralysed from the head down in a riding accident. She goes on to say “after my accident, reduced to a bag of bones for the first time in my life…great bony shoulders and visible ribs and fleshless hollow armpits…. this was the look I once craved but never like this, slumped helpless in a chair.”

Be alive, confident and interesting. Next time you berate yourself for being too fat, just repeat it as a mantra. That’s all that matters, being alive and being able to move around without a pulley. That’s really all that matters.
