I read a post from BodiMojo today about pledging to love my body and thought that I would also write a blog and do the same. When I read it, it made me feel so good that there are people out there just loving there bodies exactly the way they are. Not trying to change them, to try to find the love.
So here it goes:
My Pledge To Love My Body!
I promise to love every part of my body, even those parts that the media tells me are flawed. I love my entire body, and send extra love to my wrinkles and my thighs.
I promise not to allow that negative voice tell me I’m not perfect exactly the way I am. I promise not to buy into the media that young is pretty and old isn’t. I promise to not change my body and allow it to be what it is because it is who I am and I am unique.
I promise not to judge others because I know if I am judging others, it means I am judging myself. I promise to take care of my body for the right reasons; because I want to be healthy, not because I’m afraid my body won’t look a certain way.
I promise to see everyone for their essence and spirit not the body they use to carry them through this life. I promise to love my body and everyone’s body as well.
