Yes we wear these constantly. Yes you may join us.
Today, People, is National Love Your Body Day (or, if you live in our domicile, it’s simply Wednesday. We behave as though every day is NLYBD up in herre).
Im here to shout from the proverbial rafters that I DO.
I love my body.
I love, appreciate, & take better care of it now at forty-one than I did at twenty-one.
I love my body because it complied with my demands yesterday even with my crappy back and did a headstand into the lotus position (!) much to the Tornado’s shock & delight.
I love my body because it’s a house for my spirit, my soul & for all the things which truly matter in life.
I love my body because when I am still and when I listen it provides me all the answers I need.
I love my body because Ive finally realized embracing it and all its imperfections is , for me, the path to living fully & without fear or hesitation.
And, because Im one to crowdsource, I tossed this question out on Twitter:
help a misfit out. Why do you love your body? RIGHT NOW. RIGHT IN THIS MOMENT. RIGHT AS IT IS.
I’m also here to say that Im not naive enough to think, just because it’s a day when we’re commanded to, bodylove is easy & simple as all that.
It took me decades & lots of work to claw my way get to the place I am today.
Lots of babysteps which slowly added up over time.
I also know the tip which helped me the most was to surround myself with people who love and accept themselves for who they are *right now.*
It’s amazing how attitudes like that can be contagious.
Join me today in both the self-love & in the list making.
Why do you love your body today precisely as it is in this moment?
Whats the most powerful tip/suggestion/quote you’ve heard with regards to self-love?

** Edited to say: Im aware the tweet screen-shots are tiny, People. That said, Im so freakin proud (and celebrating the BRAIN my bod houses). It took this misfit forever to figure out how to screen-shot…
