As girls, sometimes the only thing we wanna do is put on the sweat pants, sit on the couch with a bag of Salt N' Vinegar chips (mmm, my fave!), and go over and over in our minds all the things we hate about bodies. We've all done it! About 3 years ago I cut a page out of SHAPE magazine that had 8 amazing reasons to start loving your body TODAY! I ripped it out and put it in my wallet. I get it out every once and a while to remind myself that it's CONFIDENCE that attracts people! Learning to love who you are and what you have is the first step towards being a happier YOU! Life is short; why spend it bashing your body? So... here they are ladies:
#1 BECAUSE it's unique; no one else has the same one
#2 BECAUSE it's capable of extraordinary feats, enabling you to run, climb, jump, lift, squat, snuggle, and spoon!
#3 BECAUSE no matter how badly you treat it, it's willing to give you another chance!
#4 BECAUSE it's expressive, telling you how it feels (pay attention!) and broadcasting to others how you feel about it.
#5 BECAUSE, let's face it, confidence is pretty sexy.
#6 BECAUSE your daughter must learn to love hers.
#7 BECAUSE somebody out there (or many somebodies!) admires, and adores it.
#8 BECAUSE you'll regret not loving it more later!
Ok girls... it's time to start the new you! Learn to love yourself and it will be contagious to everyone around you! Here's the cheesy thought for the day.... "The one thing that goes with every outfit: a big smile!" Gotta laugh at that one! But, seriously! If you need help jump-starting your self-acceptance, just read the list of reasons to embrace yourself-- from head to toe!
