HOW TO LOVE YOUR BODY
Mama be free from the chains of the expectations you THINK people have of you!
Mama be free and see what a wonderment of a being you are and how your body birthed life to another and life to a superhuman in you!
Mama free yourself from the small mind that used to suffocate your very being and feel the breeze of joy caress your beautiful body, mind and ever expanding heart.
Mama will you realise you are so incredibly beautiful exactly as you are, for the scars on your body that tattoo the landmarks and mile stones in your blessed life and for the beautiful big heart you have that rides over all idolised and mindless expectations of what is “beauty”
Mama, be free!
Something happened to me when I had my boy. One year on and I am feeling more joy, appreciation and love for my body than I have ever felt before.
My body has been permanently altered and not in what's thought to be a “typically” good way! Yet I see the beauty in it more than I ever have before.
Maybe it’s the fact that it was the home to the little love of my life for nine months, in fact that probably has a large role to play, but it’s more than that also.
I used to look in the mirror and just see imperfections. I felt like a little girl desperately waiting for some thing to happen to my body that made me feel I could accept it, I just didn’t expect that thing to be “giving birth”!
I look in the mirror now, and although I see what magazines would find a whole list and red circle opportunities of imperfections, I still smile at myself and feel love and respect for my body and what I see.
I think to myself “thank you body, for keeping me healthy and giving me this beautiful life to live every single day and thank you body for bringing my ray of sunshine into this world, thank you body, you are AMAZING! And amazing is BEAUTIFUL”
It might have taken having a baby for me to realise how beautiful my body is JUST the way it is, but you don’t have to have a baby to realise it too for yourself.
Just look at yourself naked, or near enough. And see your body for exactly what it is… The thing thats giving you life! This precious life! This life filled with so much incredibility.
Your body is responsible for giving you eyes to see the beautiful things you can see every single day that touch your heart and soul.
Your body is responsible for letting you hear sweet music and the sound of people laughing.
Your body is responsible for you feeling the tender touch of love.
Your body is responsible for making you move step by step to see more and more of this incredibly magical world and the stars that shelter you in the night sky.
Your body is responsible for making you feel every incredible emotion that puts the colour into your lifes canvas.
Your body is responsible for tasting the sweet tastes of this earth's nutritional fruits!
Your body is responsible for swaying and setting itself free to the rhythm and vibrations that flow through your ears! DANCE!
Your body is responsible for everything you have and will experience that will leave you so thirsty for more of this life you pray that when you leave your body…there is more, so that you feel you can take this incredible journey you have experienced in your amazing body with you!
Your body is responsible for a million and more things that make life worth while to you every single day.
Your body is not here to be punished every day for not being like some one else's! Jesus… Life is too short for that shit! Life is too precious to make yourself feel like crap for the shape or size of your body. You have everything to thank your body for, so don’t be your own worst enemy. Give it the love and appreciation it so truly deserves.
Love your body! Be thank full to your amazing, incredible and BEAUTIFUL body. Be kind to your body. Treat it well physically and be mindful of it, say nice things to and about it. Do not be your own worst bully. Be your own best friend.
I dare you to look in the mirror and tell yourself only wonderful things about your body every single day until you believe it.
LIVE your life.
