Self-love starts from within, but needs to radiate out to your body, because beautiful, you look sexy in that body of yours!
Self-love is defined in many ways, and ‘Self’ consists of many layers, but one of the most important ones is the outside layer; your body.
Don’t let social media pressure affect how you feel about yourself. Remember, the only opinion that matters is yours, and you deserve self-love.
I have learned this the hard way. I went through a time in life where every time I looked in the mirror, I was disappointed with what I saw; too fat, too thin, not tanned enough, not smooth enough. I was never ‘enough’. I was suffering from Bulimia. One day, during a food binge session, my tooth fell out. This moment shocked me to my core, and then my heart spoke to me and told me that I needed to make a change. Since then, loving my body is an integral part of my self-love journey, and I want to share how I have, and still am, approaching this journey.
Circumstances, emotions, and our cycle are just a few things that affect our bodies and how we feel about them. Have you been feeling a bit under the weather and allowed yourself to indulge, and your jeans have become a bit tighter? That is a result of you taking care of your inner self, love it, and accept it! You are in full control and no matter what shape or weight, believe you are beautiful and listen to what your body needs. Sometimes that’s more chocolate, a yoga session, or a badass boxing class.
Channel your inner child
Remember the days when you were a child, and you did not once think about how your body looked? Channel that. Channel the times you were present when you didn’t think about what others thought of you and focused on just having a good time. Growing up, we will face criticism and negative words, but you can unlearn these negative feelings, and start learning to be body positive. Start now!
Stop and stare
My self-love assignment for you this week; every time you see yourself in a mirror, stop, and remind yourself how beautiful you are and how much you love yourself. You deserve that.
