This is my body at 42 years old. This is not easy for me to show myself without a shirt or more make up on. I hide my body often.
When I look in the mirror I see a thick midsection, a soft belly, circles under my eyes & lines at my neck. I am my own worst critic
I’m saying “enough!” to this bull shit self talk. I’m seeing all this because I choose to believe all this. “You will always find the evidence for what you choose to believe” IN-Q
I should value and appreciate my body! I have 4 strong & full functioning limbs, a healthy brain, great friends, true love in my life and a job that gives me purpose. It’s time to change this daily pattern. I’m making a daily practice to turn criticism into adoration.
To undo years of shitty self talk, I must be consistent with my body positivity practice. That’s why I made this 2 step daily practice.
I’d love for you to join me. I’m kicking this off July 1st and I’m challenging myself to do this every day till Aug 1st ( 62 days forms a new habit into an automatic behavior)
“Bre’s LOVE MY BODY RESET Plan” July 1,2021 – Aug 1 2021 (at least)
Step 1: State this quote each morning “You will always find the evidence for what you choose to believe” IN-Q
Step 2: Look at my body in the bathroom mirror and say new beliefs (appreciations) about the parts I judge:
- Soft belly – Thank you for taking time to enjoy hot chocolates (my recipe here) over deep talks and slow walks with good friends
- Thick midsection– Thank you for strong muscles to keep my back safe and strong so I can move well and calm my mind.
- Arms – Thank you for snuggling in bed with a person you love. I love your for picking up healthy fats to keep my mood happy & brain healthy .
- Eyes and Neck – Thank you for the years of deep concern you’ve held for others.You’ve seen a lot and felt a lot.
If you want to stop judging your body .. do this daily for a couple months with me. Let’s feel stronger & enjoy summer more! I will put some check ins on my Instagram page @Bre Brighter / burnbrightercoaching
