I had another post scheduled for today, but I wanted to deal with these negative feelings head on. Because why wait to make yourself feel better, right? Right.
I went bra shopping on Tuesday and it wasn't the most pleasant experience.
Thoughts of, "Ooh... maybe I should budget for a little surgical oomph"
and "Oh no. Oh no oh no this is bad" came into my head a few (hundred) times.
I get it: I'm a horrible role model of body image and I need an attitude adjustment.
It's a slow and at times frustrating process, but I'm trying.
After a day of Greek food, macarons, and bra shopping (real bad combination)
I came home and looked at these photos from Monterey and thought:
"I can do stuff. I like that. I probably can do a lot of stuff I don't realize."
So instead of focusing on how my body looks, I thought I would focus on what it can do.
My body can:
do the splits
jump high in the air
spin and not fall
out push-up most people
recover from illnesses
give amazing back rubs
dance on the beach in skinny jeans
What can your body do?
