Happy Love Your Body Day!!

Wednesday, October 21, 2009

In honor of National Love Your Body Day, I decided to make up a list of a few reasons why I love my body, exactly as it is right now. No "ifs" or "buts" or "excepts". So...

I love my body because...

...it has arms, legs, eyes, ears, a heart, lungs, and everything else that works to keep me alive and well every day. Thank God for my health.

...of what it has been able to accomplish so far.

...it's the house for my soul, my feelings, and my thoughts.

...it can be so easily wrapped in a hug.

...it bravely protects all my insides :).

...it's mine.

I know I complain a lot about the way I see myself. But none of that right now. Today (and everyday - I'm still learning), I just want to be thankful that I have this unique, ever changing, capable body. Especially with pictures like these being plastered all over the media, it's important to remember that beautiful does not have boundaries, and no one should be able to tell us it does. Let's appreciate our bodies and give them the TLC they deserve! :)

Why do YOU love your body, exactly as it is RIGHT NOW?
