I have to find someone who can teach me how to paint like this. It’s so incredible, like a cave… in heaven!
I can’t believe I just wrote that
That chandelier is wild!
So today is “Topless Tuesday” here in Tumblr. And it got me to thinking. Sure - most of you are out there digging for the hot photos of chicks with fabulous racks. But I’m going to give you a dose of reality. This is my “Topless Tuesday”. It may not be what you came for. It may make you uncomfortable to look at this image. But this is me. This is what I see in the mirror when I am topless. And it could be you too, ladies.
Please don’t ever take your fabulous rack for granted. Cancer can happen to anyone, at any age. Regard me as a cautionary tale if that’s what makes you more comfortable. But the reality is that 18,000 women under the age of 40 will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year. And I hope you will look at this picture and remember how precious your life is. Take 5 minutes today - on Topless Tuesday - and do a self breast exam. If you can take 5 minutes to take a topless photo of yourself, you can also take 5 minutes to do something that could very well save your life.
You are beautiful, amazing, and incredibly brave. I’ve never wanted to hug a complete stranger so much. ♥
