I grew up hating- absolutely loathing my body. I use to daydream of smaller thighs & wish my self to shrink even just one centimeter. I grew really fast -like over a span of 6 months so I gained stretch marks that became my nemesis quickly.
Glad that I'm no longer choosing to believe those thoughts & daily find myself in gratitude for whatever stage my body happens to be at. Whether it's a full tummy from delicious food, bloated body overall from my period or just the fact that my literal body is aging & changing.
I don't wanna learn to embrace my body.
No, I want to celebrate every stage it's in. That may sound ridiculous - it does to me most days just saying it. But when I tap into what my truest desires are, it feels so good & true for me.
I have no idea what will happen to this body of mine while I'm here on this earth.
So with today's breath I express gratitude for a body that allows me to move, to express, sweat & love with. ** reality check: my thighs normally can't keep themselves off each other 😋 it's just the yoga pose that's giving the hilarious illusion that they don't touch- lol 😂 when have they not touched- maybe when I was 8?
