Every single person that has ever existed on this planet has achieved their existence thanks to the uterus. We each begin our life intimately connected with this marvelous organ. The uterus is incredibly strong (forceful enough to push out an entire baby), incredibly flexible (it grows from the size of a pear to fill a woman’s entire abdomen, then shrinks back down again) and is the only organ that can grow another organ with it (the placenta.) Above all, the uterus literally creates human life. If that’s not worth celebrating, I don’t know what is.
Our world is full of wonders, both externally and internally. Every organ, every ecosystem, every cell is perfectly designed, astonishingly beautiful and completely interdependent. If we could truly acknowledge the miracle of a single tree, our entire life would change. The breathtaking beauty of the natural world is also within each of us. We are walking miracles.
Through this series, I hope to educate, to inspire, to reacquaint people with the profundity of the perfectly ordinary. Above all, I hope to help people appreciate their own bodies and their connection to the world around them.
