BOYS! some body positivity for you!!! without sounding weird, i much prefer a soft squishy tummy, to cuddle up to, than rock hard abs, but that’s just me! abs are fab if that’s your thing, but NEWS FLASH: no abs are also fab!!!  YOU DON’T NEED ABS TO BE FAB!! (magazines are also full of toned up muscly men, and it’s crazy, not all men look like that, and you certainly don’t need to!!) 

Realize that bodies are only a fraction of who we are
They’re just oddly-shaped vessels for hearts
And honestly, they can barely contain us
We strain at their seams with every breath we take
We are all pulse and sweat,
Tissue and nerve ending
We are programmed to grope and fumble until we get it right.
Bodies have been learning each other forever.
It’s what bodies do.
They are grab bags of parts
And half the fun is figuring out
All the different ways we can fit them together;
All the different uses for hipbones and hands,
Tongues and teeth;
All the ways to car-crash our bodies beautiful.
But we could never forget how to use our hearts
Even if we tried.
That’s the important part.
Don’t worry about the bodies.
They’ve got this.
