I really love this cartoon because it shows us how often we waste our time by comparing ourselves to ideas of perfection generated by movies and the media.

For this week I challenge you to go out and do one thing that scares you and excites you – don’t try to fit into pre-moulded conceptions of acceptable femininity – be yourself in a meaningful way.

And then write about it – write about your first time being you, free from restrictions and control. Send it in to 1sttimewritingproject2010@gmail.com or simply keep it for yourself as proof that you can be who you want to be and enjoy it!
