Not just on "Love your body day", but every day! Even if it is slightly broken and hurts quite a lot, I choose to love my body just the way it is. My body is doing it's very very best to heal and function as well as it possibly can, even with RA, a steel bolted back and whiplash injury. That's awesome!!! My legs carry me around, I can use both my arms and hands, I can eat, smile, talk.... I can watch a beautiful sunrise, listen to music, hug a friend and even dance - it's wonderful!!!
I'm grateful for my body today, and I choose to show it by spending time and energy on things that I know are good for it. A body living with chronic pain deserves applause and TLC every single day.
I also make an effort to talk good about my body, stopping the negative dialogue that only brings me down. For some inspiration on spreading self love, check out the amazing Operation Beautiful - transforming lives one post it at a time.
