‘Too Big for My Skin’

‘Too Big for My Skin’

Need a quick self-esteem pick-me-up?  Check out this video campaign by Desdemona. Writes the artist: “Too Big for My Skin is not just a poem. It’s a mind state. It’s an international campaign that invites you to leave your response to the video in the comment section or to submit your very own video response. It’s about positive body image, acceptance and strength. It’s about finding your voice and speaking. Join us in the campaign. More is to come!”

    Great video ! I like the idea that it aims at all women, b/c you can feel insecure about your body whatever you weight is, in our societies…
    It reminds us of not forgetting the “big picture” : what really matters in life.
    We are all unique. So are our lifes ans our dreams.

    I’m reading your blog from work, so no sound card on the computer, but I just read the lyrics and they brought a tear to my eye–so beautiful and heartfelt. I always felt much the same way about my mom; she was a woman of some size, and she gave the best hugs on the planet. Every woman should hear this song, and I’m going to revisit after I get home, so I can put the words to the music. Thanks for sharing this.
