Mermaid Abs

dancing on the water
Mermaids are by far my favourite mythological creature. I have been absolutely fascinated with them ever since I was introduced to them as a toddler in 'The Little Mermaid.'  I am now in my 20s and still dream of the day when I wake-up underwater with a gorgeous sea-green tail, thick and luscious flowing red or dark brown hair and amazing abs. WAIT. Why the amazing abs? Why do I always picture mermaids as having flat stomachs? If mermaids were real, I'm sure they would come in all shapes and sizes! Therefore, I need not obsess over my weight and abs beginning now, so as to have a flat, sexy stomach by Halloween in order to ROCK my planned mermaid Halloween costume!  Instead, I should probably focus on the actual CREATION of the costume, as there is more to a mermaid than her abs.

'BUT' says the illogical voice in my head, 'would you REALLY be happy walking around on Halloween in your awesome mermaid costume with an AVERAGE stomach? EVERYONE would be looking at your stomach! It DOESN'T HELP that you decided to get your bellybutton pierced, so EVERYONE will be looking at your BELLY because it will be so SPARKLY. Are you REALLY ok with large crowds of people making MENTAL NOTES of the lack of tone-age in your BELLY?! Really? REALLY?'

'UM' says the logical side of my brain, 'LIFE IS  NOT ABOUT ABS! Why does it matter what people think about your abs? They probably won't even care because your tail will be so FLASHY!! Remember the Rumi quote you found today: 'I want to sing like the birds sing, not worrying about who hears or what they think,' and live by that!!'

I blame Disney for this whole issue. Damn you, Disney, why couldn't Ariel have been a bit more curvaceous?!
