I am guilty of negative self talk, of being overly critical of myself and my body. I often get caught up comparing myself to others. I would never talk to another person the way I talk to myself and my body. So I wanted to take a moment first to apologize to the body parts I often put down (cough, stomach - cough, cough - thighs), and point out the amazing things my body does every day that are so often overlooked and under appreciated.
I have chosen to show myself how much I appreciate...myself...in the corniest way possible - A POEM! *blush*
To my legs – your are strong and bold, you take me near and far, without you I would be no where
To my arms – you are agile and resilient, you carry all the things I need to survive
To my ass – you comfort me as I sit and think, you shine the most on the dance floor
To my stomach – you are the home for the food that nourishes me, you process the fuel that keeps me going
To my boobs – you are always the star of the show, two bra’s can’t even hold you down!
To my face - you are unique, you present me to the world as one
To my mind – you are smarter than you think, and just as funny as you know
To my heart – you are kind, you love, you ache for others
To me – I am the whole of all of the parts, all perfectly flawed and completely my own
Did you like my poem?
What is a body part you often put down, and why you should appreciate it?
