Love My Body
21 Thu, 2010 § 6 Comments
Yesterday was National Love Your Body Day [there is a “national” day for everything, isn’t there?].
I have been thinking about my body all day.
I love my body.
I still struggle with body image just like anybody else — some days more so than others — but why would I ever want to do anything unkind to my body which is so incredible?
I love my smile & how my whole body feels when I laugh.
I love how my eyes can sparkle — how do I make that happen more often? 😉
I love my scars — they are proof that I have lived.
My body is strong & capable of taking me to amazing & beautiful places.
My body went from not being able to pull myself up the easiest climbs to projecting difficult slabs.
My body’s intuition is amazing — it always whispers when something is not quite right — I just have to listen.
My body is amazing at healing itself when sick or injured & works its hardest when I am not — when I am sleeping!
My body adapts to whatever I throw at it.
My body is so much stronger than I think it is — it always pushes out one more rep or one more move or one more mile when I think I am spent.
I feel my body’s love, even if I have not always loved it.
Tell me why you love your body!
