Love your body. It’ll be the only one you’ll ever have to wear.
The Summer Solstice is upon us, and although most of you have experienced maddeningly hot temperatures, this means that summer is officially upon us. Can you believe that 2015 is halfway over? I can’t. This year has flown by. As I look back on the notes I took in January regarding the Annual theme I set for this year was Manifesting, and so far, so good.
One thing I do need to work on is loving my body more, and not just in terms of self-care, but also how I react to myself mentally and emotionally in the mirror. As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve struggled with body dysmorphia for most of my adult life. I was also bulimic for over a decade. Although I no longer binge and purge (I’ve healed my relationship with food), I still don’t see myself clearly, and only very recently have I been able to love the image I see in the mirror and in photographs regardless of how they may appear.
I will only be living in this gorgeous Florida beach town for a few more months, and while I’m still here, I plan to enjoy the shit out of wearing my bikini while I head to the beach as a practice of self-love. I’ll be writing more about health, fitness, and holism in the coming months. I’ve been on an incredibly challenging and rewarding journey in terms of body image in the past 2 years, and the project I’ve taken on excites me like no other. I’ll write more about it soon.
In the meantime, love your body in every way you can. Enjoy the sunshine and the breeze, wherever you may be.
