I Heart My Body?



A few months ago, I posed nude.  Why?  Because I have learned to accept my body with every bump and roll.

Click Here for My Body Image Post.

We all have parts of our bodies that we dislike, but today, take a look in the mirror and tell yourself 3 things you love about your body.

I love my legs.  I love my butt.  I love my boobs.

Now, I may not heart my body, but I have accepted that it is who I am TODAY.  It will not be this shape forever.  I am working on improving my body.  But not for anyone but myself. 

There is no denying that we need to take care of our bodies, but we are more than our body.  Our ideals are so unrealistic and we need to love and embrace the body we have now.  Most of us don't use garden variety put downs.  We are brutally negative with ourselves.  It is not acceptable to talk to ourselves with such venom. 

We need to set a standard.

We are beautiful. 

Let's move away from the unrealistic ideals and learn to love and embrace the body we have today.

  6. We really can be incredibly cruel to ourselves can't we? Would we speak to our friends, spouses or children with such venom?

    You're a stunner, Danielle.
