The Body Talks – Part 2

 Body Shop Talk

How do you treat your body and talk to yourself about your body?

I have had my moments where I have not been happy with my body, especially in gaining weight! A love and loathe relationship at times. In the past year I have been becoming more comfortable as well as becoming more natural when it comes to my body and my body confidence! I am pretty much loving the changes, especially discovering my strong from the inside out once again.

Nothing will every be perfect, especially in aging and not getting any younger! I am learning to be grateful for what my body can do for me, especially after recovering from a major injury. I am also learning to accept and embrace what I have and work it! I am loving my curves more now than ever.

Accepting/Kindness . . . Embracing/Compassion . . .

I am slowly gaining that belief and trust in myself and my whole being again from the inside out! I am finding that confidence to just get out there more, way more. That is the confidence I need to put out there to the world each and every day! I need to be positive and feel good about my body, my needs and my whole being.

The biggest change I have been trying to embrace is receiving compliments. I am much better at giving myself a compliment than receiving a compliment from another person, especially from someone I really do not know that well. I am working on giving compliments to other people and that feels pretty great. A little LOVE goes a long way and just have to be more open, receptive and kind!


Some days I wish I had a mega phone to tell my crazy mind and my negative self to just SHUT UP! What do I have to really complain about anyway. I am so lucky to have been given this one body! I need to spend my time and my energy on the positive and the greater good. Enough already with the negative smack talk, especially when everything and anything in your life is changeable!

I want my self worth to be my attributes and my talents and my gifts! I am strong, I am smart and I am creative. I want to live up to my full potential and that means living my life from the inside out! I need to spend my time and my energy on getting out there and just living it each and every day.

I do not care for the word “someday”! I want to live for TODAY and truly appreciate what I do have already! In finding humility and gratitude I have found self love and that is the greatest gift that I can give myself EVERY DAY!!!
