Even thought I’ve come a long way from my body bashing days, it’s so easy for me to find imperfections with my body. So easy.
The other day, I had enough. I told myself that instead of focusing on every bit “fat” or “flab” on my body, I’m going to remind myself about all of the wonderful things it allows me to do on a daily basis.
Instead of focusing on those last few pounds, I’m going to enjoy the little every day things that I oftentimes take for granted.
No one is perfect. In fact, I think perfection is boring. So why do I put pressure on myself to have a “perfect” body? I am healthy and strong, and that’s what really matters.
I hate it when I hear other people bashing their bodies, so why should I be any different? I’m not.
I still have a good number of years left to spend with this body, so I better start developing a positive relationship with it today.
I better start appreciating it today.
I better start loving it today.
Do you ever have days where you’re less than pleased with your reflection in the mirror? How do you combat that negative self-talk?
