When the world surrounds us with body shame, we can build a shelter of love for ourselves and our precious bodies instead. How can we ever feel neutral or positive about our bodies when our only vocabulary to think about or discuss them is full of shame?
Today, I’d like you to practice substituting positive words for the shame-filled words you were taught. Let’s start a practice of reframing our large bodies by being kind to them, not only in the kinds of images we view, but in the words we use to describe ourselves.
Today’s word to try out: ✨ Blooming ✨
