This is my body it is not perfect, but I refuse to apologise for my flaws.
Yes, I have a fat belly, yes my knees are fat and the list of flaws could go on forever, but this is not the focus of this post. It is about learning to love my body for what it is and how it looks at this moment.
This blog is about love remember, so I will be talking about embracing the flaws and loving the body you have.
Yes, I am on a journey of self-love, but I’m also on a fitness journey.
At this moment in time, my body is not working how it should, the excess weight is playing with my health.
So my fitness journey is more than just about how I look, but how my body feels and works.
Although I may not look excessively overweight, this extra weight is causing my IBS to flare up, most of my life I have danced or worked as a fitness instructor, so I can feel the difference in my body
With self-love comes embracing the person you are, flaws and all. It’s about looking in the mirror and seeing all the good things about yourself not just the bad.
We need to find the things we like about ourselves and turn them into love, we need to look at the flaws we hate and find a way to like them.
Embracing the bad is all part of this journey.
There is no such thing as perfect, so why are we always chasing after it. I don’t want to be perfect I just want to be happy being me, doing all the things I love.
Life is made for living, so why are most of us not living but just existing.
So what I’m doing is learning to embrace the good with the bad finding the beauty in the ugly.
Who’s with me???
