I remember this day like it was yesterday. We were in Maui with the kiddies and we did an incredible photo shoot on the beach. And I hated how I looked in every picture. I was unhappy in my body, my hair had thinned out so much, I had no eyebrows, and I was just so overly critical of everything “wrong” with this photo.
What I didn’t know at that time was that I could love myself exactly as I was but still want to look and feel better. I didn’t know that I could appreciate my arms for carrying my babies, appreciate my smile because it lights up a room, appreciate my thighs for walking me up and down that beach. I could love me for exactly who I am and because of that, I could want more for my body and my health. It took me so many years to figure that out and I don’t want you to have to go through that like I did! .
It seems confusing to love myself exactly as I am and also want to change, but it’s all starting to make so much sense! I love myself enough to give my body good foods, I love my arms enough to lift that barbell over my head, I love my body enough to treat it with respect. That’s what self love means to me. That’s what body positivity means to me. It means not giving up when things get hard, it means telling myself that I am enough, it means wanting to look a how I want to look and not having to explain myself.
I want to give this gift away. This gift of loving your body enough to give it health. This gift of loving yourself exactly where you’re at so you can want to fill your own cup. I challenge you to look in the mirror and tell yourself why you can love and appreciate each body part right now in this moment. And then I challenge you to decide how you can give yourself this gift. .
