We spend so much of our time berating our bodies, complaining about what our bodies haven't given us and the way they dare to look. And, yet, every single pleasure and success we have had in this life has been directly allowed to us because of our bodies. Our bodies have given us the opportunity to have every experience of our lives.
Though my body is my form, it isn’t me—not really.This IS my human container—my human form—but the essence of me is spirit.
But this particular human container of mine is also me. And a pretty bad-ass me for that—not because it is chiseled, honed or perfect (because it is none of those things,believe me,dont judge by the photo;I have just mastered the art of posing right for a picture to enhance my assets and hide my imperfections)—but because it made (from scratch!) and then birthed and then breastfed four human beings. Big ones..And I appreciate that’s nothing to sneeze at. I notice that the form of my body also carries with it markers of my life. Injury scars, pregnancy stretchmarks, childbearing hips and breastfeeding tits. As they say in art school—Form follows function.
Υοu dont believe me your body is an everyday miracle in action?Here are 50 Awsome Things Your Body Can Do
''Because I understand that my love and respect for my body are metaphors of my love and respect for my self and soul, I pledge to do the following:
To stop berating my body and to begin celebrating the vessel that I have been given. I will remember the amazing things my body has given me: the ability to experience the world with a breadth of senses, the ability to perceive and express love, the ability to comfort and soothe, and the ability to fight, provide, and care for humanity.''
Promise to take good care of your body. Celebrate your body by caring for it and pampering it. Be sure to eat well by feeding it the necessary vitamins and nutrients. Choose activities that you love, that move your body. Feel sexy,because you are. And please end the inner “fat talk” once and for all.
Οne of my own ways of celebrating my body is posting pictures of me looking good. I mean,when it's public,it's kind of official,so I have to believe it myself: ''yeah,you are looking good,girl!''
Make that decision for you—and the whole world—today to start really loving your body! And post a few pictures to prove it!
Love,peace and body acceptance
