This poem, written by artist Rachel Toll, was sent to me by a friend yesterday. Love it, hope you do too. (Apologies if you've already heard it.)

Three good friends went for a swim
The one who was fat wished she was thin
The one who was curvy wished she was clever
The one who was clever wished she swam better
The really good swimmer wished she was witty
The one who was witty wished she was pretty
All three friends thought that the other two were just fine
If only they could let their own bright light shine
So throw on your swimsuit if you're fat or you're thin
Enjoy fun and friendship
Love the skin that you're in.

You’re right - we all have hang ups.
