As soon as she said this, the thought that immediately came to mind was “As opposed to what?” Was she trying to imply that I was fat before?
Anyway being myself, I asked her what she meant, and she stated that she felt that I looked thinner than before; that I looked good. I thanked her, made small talk then went on my way.
As I was walking, I thought to myself, “How ironic.”
Earlier that day I had lamented about how thin I had gotten. I mourned the loss of my bust and the shrinking of my “figure”. While I had been disappointed with my weight loss someone else had seen it and had wanted to celebrate it with me.
I guess the point I’m trying to reach is that everything is about perception; For every negative there is a positive.
So, while I mourn my boobs, I should celebrate my face slimming down. Because while I hadn’t been “big” my face had been chunky, unbearably round. So no longer will I look at the glass as half-empty. Nope, it is now half-full.
Have you ever found irony in life?
