100 Words a Day: Day 5

Why are all of these so sad?
Prompt: Healthy 

Healthy. What does that word mean to you? 

What does it make you think of? It used to make me think of a thin woman in workout clothes in the middle of a squat or some other kind of contortion.

But now I know that the fitness freak lady I used to think was the pinnacle of health could be hiding an eating disorder.

What else does healthy mean? A wide smile? I used to think so. But smiles can be masks.

So what is healthy? I don’t know. I wish I did so I could try to copy it.

  1. I like this post. Im a hijabi dealing with hairloss brought on by stress. When I think about healthy dealing with this test, I think Id rather lose my hair than lost my sight or the ability to walk. Losing hair is a small thing. I still function as normal so thats healthy to me. Alhumdulilah.
