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.
