I love my body because….you might take a look at that and hold a blank stare for at least five minutes. I get it and I’ve been there. School was cancelled today because of flooding and a high tide at 8am. This is a first for me. I mean, we’ve had snow days sure. But school has never been cancelled due to too much rain. But what do I expect I guess when we live on the ocean in Washington State? It’s rainy season times 100.
All of this rain and school being cancelled is bringing me back to the days of quarantine. I know a lot of you probably don’t want to be reminded of that and many of us are still currently there. But although repetitive and boring at times quarantine did a brilliant job at reminding me of a few things.
Like how amazing it feels to get outside.
Bras are NOT a necessity
And how hearing my teenage kids giggle like they’re five again totally makes my day
But it also forced us to go inside ourselves a little deeper. Which instantly brought me back to this boudoir session right before quarantine hit. It was in my old studio but it’s one I’ll never forget.
It truly reminded me how quickly we can forget who we are. We can lose our identities. Caring for our family, working for a company, being pulled in a million different directions. Those are people we love and want to do things for, we wouldn’t change any of it. But every once in a while we have to put ourselves first and remember who we are.
Being at home so much and away from other people also gives us an opportunity for negative self talk to rear its ugly head. We can start to believe the horrible lies we tell ourselves about how needing to lose weight to feel worthy, or how our bodies used to be back when we were 17, and all the other changes we’ve gone through. But I’m committed to making 2022 the year that I really do start to love my body how it is and I challenge you to join me. Here are the reasons why I love my body.
That’s exactly what this session was about. She took a few hours with me to remember who she was. And then she went back out there stronger and even more powerful than before.
Tell me if you can relate. What would you add to the list of reasons why you love your body? If life has swept you up and caused you to forget who you are for a moment, know that you’re not alone. There’s ways to claim your power back.
