Love Your Body
I saw this video this morning and absolutely love the this lady's message. As a plus size woman, I have always had trouble loving my body. I've always felt judged even though I'm sure that most people don't even give me a second look. Imagining the judgment is probably worse than anything that anyone would actually say.
I had a bit of a lightbulb-going-on moment not too long ago when, after a get-together with my sister-in-law and niece, my niece gave me a hug and commented that she loves to hug me because I'm so soft. She loves my hugs. I smiled for days after that. I'm not sure that she understood what an impact that one off-hand comment had on me. For once, I actually felt good about my body.
Everybody should have a moment like that now and then as a reminder to love themselves just as they are.
This Body Image Movement started by Taryn Brumfitt is something that every woman needs. Whether a woman is large, small, tall or short she needs to be told that she is perfect as she is and needs to BELIEVE it. This movement's Facebook page can be found here - https://www.facebook.com/bodyimagemovement
Check it out and, if you can, make a donation to help her make her documentary that will continue to spread her message. If you can't then just give her a shout-out and enjoy her message.

I'm grateful that I was taught at a young age by my plus sized mother, how to dress to accentuate your plusses and cover up your minuses. I've always dressed with that in mind and therefore I never had a bad problem with liking myself once I gained weight. If your hair looks good, make up is on and you know you've done your best, you should hold your head up high and not worry. Good post Kathy.ReplyDelete
Thanks Barb! When I saw that video it really had an impact on me and I just knew that I had to share. I think that as long as we know that we are doing our best for ourselves - inside and out - we need to accept who we are and never mind what others think (or not think as the case may be)Delete
I love that! I will try and remember to watch the video when I get home.ReplyDelete
I hope that you did get to see it. It really touched me.Delete
