    Alright, true confession time. Is there a classic movie that everyone LOVES…but you secretly hate? I've got one. You're gonna be so disappointed in me.

    The Wizard of Oz.

    Creepiest. Movie. Ever.

    Seriously, I saw it when I was a kid and it FREAKED me out! Scary tornados, flying monkeys and…someone melts?! Terrifying!

    Even as a grown-up, I'm still not a fan. Scarred for life, I guess!

    But, people are appalled when they learn that I don't like the movie. I always get “What?! I LOVE that movie!” We're even singing a bunch of music from the movie with my Pops Chorale for our Spring Concert. People LOVE that movie!

    So, what about you? Got a classic film that everyone seems to love…except you?

    It only took a few seconds. Amberley Snyder glanced down at her map while driving on the freeway on a clear winter morning, but those 2 or 3 seconds changed her life. Amberley's truck drifted off the road, she overcorrected and rolled her truck. Tragically, Amberley didn't wear her seatbelt that day. She was thrown from the truck, hitting a metal pole. When she landed, she said “Everything slowed down and I couldn't feel my legs or my toes move. I knew that something was definitely wrong.”

    At the hospital, she learned the devastating news: her back was broken and she was paralyzed.

    Her first thought was “Whoa…this can't be. How am I going to get back on my horse and compete?”

    You see, Amberley has competed for years in the barrel racing circuit. She thought that was all over.

    But, while doctors told her she would never walk again, nobody said anything about riding.

    Amberley made it her goal in life to get back on her horse.

    And now, 7 years later (unbelievably!) she has worked her way back and she's competing again. Not only that, she is at the top of her game! She recently won $10,000 in a competition in Las Vegas!

    Amberley confessed “It took a lot of work. But, I've earned my professional card and now I can compete with the best girls out there. Getting back on a horse again has taught me that anything is possible and not to give up. Now, I'm determined to walk again. To me, it's not a matter of 'if,' but 'when.'”

    You see it every time you go through the check-out line. Magazines with “perfect-looking” people on the cover. Meanwhile, you're standing there in sweatpants and flip flops thinking “Well, I'll never measure up to THAT!”

    Sadly, it's a struggle for most of us…that feeling that we need to look like the images we see in magazines and online.

    That's why I'm so glad that there's a push within retail and fashion to send a more positive message to women…no matter what their size. The latest store to promote a healthy body image is Target. Now, whether you're a fan of the store or not, you've gotta applaud the announcement they made yesterday that their latest swimsuit campaign features a wide range of ethnicities and body types and…this is shocking…they're totally ditching Photoshop!

    Yup, the photos feature real people of various sizes…without any Photoshopping!

    Here's hoping the trend continues so that the next generation of young girls will learn that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes…and might even include a little cellulite!
