I always loved unicorns as a little girl; they played well with my collection of My Little Ponies and Barbie dolls. I dreamed of real unicorns existing and of their beauty, which is why when I came across this picture, I was so struck by the depth of its message.
This desperate little rhino is laboriously dreaming of being a unicorn. As he runs on the treadmill, he dreams of a transformation that we all know will never happen. Simply put, a rhino cannot be a unicorn, and a unicorn cannot be a rhino. We are the same way. Sure, we can create healthier bodies and lifestyles by losing weight and toning our physique through resistance training, but fundamentally we are who we are for very specific reasons. Love yourself for how you were created to be and embrace that. Stop putting pictures of unicorns next to you while you’re on the treadmill and start loving the beautiful being you already are!
