So...I'm spreading awareness.
I'm sure most of my readers are already quite familiar with NFP.
If you want to read more about NFP, my experience with NFP, or if you are just plain nosey (because let's face it, people read blogs because they are nosey and want to know all about everyone else. It's okay...I'm nosey too. You can check out last year's post.
There has been this whole selfie thing where people take pictures of themselves holding signs saying why they don't use birth control.
Well...I'm not into the whole sign-holding selfie thing. Just seems REALLY awkward to me. Although taking a picture of what I wore Sunday is not awkward at all. Go figure.
So..I'll just show the signs without the selfies.
Plus...now you get to witness my absolutely atrocious handwriting. Blame it on the public schools.
Birth control is about the only medicine one takes when they are completely healthy to make your body NOT work the way it should. Doesn't make sense.
Even Wikipedia says it is. And, I'm scared of carcinogens.
Babies are awesome. I love babies Toddlers on the other hand...well...I'm not so fond of them. Thankfully they grow up into awesome kids...because I love kids. Kids and babies are great. Thankfully toddlers are just a blip on the child-rearing continuum .
There is something to be said for controlling your actions to get a specific outcome. Don't want a baby. Don't have sex when you are fertile (and NFP can help you know when you are fertile). Just like if you don't want to gain too much weight, don't each ice cream every night. Funny how no one has a problem telling people that they should have perfect self-control when it comes to diet and exercise But, heaven forbid anyone is expected to have self-control when it comes to sex.
It really does. One isn't really in control...they are just using a pill or something to gain a sense of control over their body. But they aren't really in control...they are relying on SOMETHING else for control..instead of relying on THEMSELVES. And artificial birth control fails...quite frequently actually. I know a woman who got pregnant after her husband had a vasectomy AND she had a tubal ligation. Yep
Anyway, so I'm going to link these up with Heather for 5 Favorites and call it a post.
