All Bodies Are Good Bodies, Including Our OwnMay 11, 2020
When we say “all bodies are good bodies” that has to include our own.
EVEN WHEN we’ve changed weight.
EVEN WHEN our body stretches and marks.
EVEN WHEN it looks different than it used to.
Today a pair of my favourite jeans didn’t fit.
And quite honestly? It upset me.
With a myriad of thoughts that followed.
A lot about not doing enough, not being enough, fear and shame… the old bag of tricks.
I had to face the reality of my belief system being at battle with my emotions and reaction to change.
Because if I believe all bodies are good bodies, that must include my own body.
A body who changed when life changed.
Because she’s doing a good job.
