Shakira is 40 years old. Here’s her latest music video where she’s wearing ripped jean shorts, a midriff-baring top, and, like… leather bondage straps on her legs. And she’s salsa dancing with a 23-year-old dude. Because that’s how Shakira rolls.
And meanwhile, what are YOU doing with YOUR life, Ms. Judgy McJudgerston on the Internet? Commenting on people’s YouTube videos? Writing Facebook messages to shame other women because of what they wear, or how they dance, or how they express themselves? Gossiping and snarking and feeling spiritually superior because your stomach isn’t exposed like Shakira’s — like THAT makes all the difference? Find something better to do with your time. Instead of commenting and shaming, CONTRIBUTE.
Challenge: Every time you are tempted to shame another woman this week, give someone a compliment. Did you send a complaint in? Great. Now send three love notes.
