I picked this quote in particular because I think it’s quite brilliant. I think that when people see a fat person that they get disgusted and won’t even bother giving them a chance. I have been up and down on the scale and not happy with my weight but I do try to eat healthier. My take away is that a fat girl does know how to love because it’s very likely we have lived with ridicule by bullies or by ignorant people that just want a laugh.
I think we all think about times we’d like to save to go back to experience again.

Those precious moments we all hold dear and sometimes I feel that is part of my responsibility as an artist.
You are more than what your job, more than what you own, who you’re related to. We are what we do, what we say, how we are with one another which is why we need to be mindful of one another and be kind. Kindness is key to receiving more kindness and tends to spread. We want kindness to spread.
