It's easy to forget that we are all perfect in our own design. Sometimes we muck it up with habits and choices that do not serve us.
It’s that time of year. A time when you think about your body… and wish it were different. Or … maybe it is always that time of year for you.
I was on one of my mentoring calls recently when one of my clients started talking about that fact that she was going away for a beach vacation and was not looking forward to the get-away with her husband … because she didn’t want to be seen in a swimsuit. She didn’t want to deal with the feelings and the people looking at her … thinking whatever they were thinking …
And, I said to her …
“YOU have already decided you aren’t going to have a good time … in advance … because you HATE your body. What if you just went in appreciation of your body and the amazing job it has done for you. I also reminded her that most people feel the same way … which means they are focused on their bodies, not yours … I strongly reminded her “Do NOT let YOUR judgment of YOUR body ROB you, your husband and your SPIRIT of a fabulous well-deserved and desired vacation. Don’t do it!”
Can you relate?
Most of us can at some point in our lives. Mine was in my early life. I remember not going places for that exact reason. Missing out on a lot of FUN things because I was so embarrassed of my FAT body. Man, did I learn from those HARD TIMES!!!!!
Now, I just appreciate the skin I am in … and I am so grateful and appreciative of my body and the amazing job it has done … in spite of my pissy attitude about it for much of my life. It truly is a miracle … and now, we are on the same team … and we work together … Such a great feeling
