One of the questions we always ask during our Discovery Sessions is, 'What are two or three things you love about yourself?" For many, this is such a difficult thing to verbalize. Some feel they are bragging and shy away from answering. Some feel like there is nothing they love physically, there is only room for improvement. It's awkward to say the least, to name things that we feel are beautiful about ourselves.
It begs the question, why are we so quick to point out what is wrong with our bodies physically? Are our bodies really here for 'fixing'? Here is some food for thought:
Why are our fat arms are beautiful?
a) They hug people. b) They cradle infants.
What about our round bellies? Why are they beautiful?
a) Because it carried our babies.
b) It digests the food we nourish our bodies with.
c) It also is a key indicator when we "just know" that something is wrong; our gut tells us more in an instant than any research will unfold.
If you have gotten this far in this old newsletter, please respond with AT LEAST ONE thing that you love about yourself. You don't even have to say why....unless you want! I will start: I really like my cheekbones.
What do you love about yourself physically? Your collar bones? Your eyes? Your full lips? Your nice smile? Your butt? Your petite feet? Your legs? Your nail beds? Let me know!
I'm looking forward to hearing from you!
