Can we just all take a moment to appreciate how magical and magnificent our bodies are?!
This body grew babies
This body houses my soul
This body walks
This body feels
This body thinks
This body does
This body rebuilds
This body is strong
This body is smart
This body is...
A lot of mental health "issues" stem around body image... but perhaps, instead if we shifted our thought process to appreciating what our body does and being thankful for that as well actually appreciating the complexity of it... understanding we are more then just an image looking back in a mirror...
Would we be happier?!
I believe so... why, you ask?! When we love and appreciate ourselves... if we praised ourselves... like the way we want others too it would create a positive chemical release of dopamine... yuuup! The same chemical released in the brain when someone is struggling with addiction and only looongs for that vice. Could you just imagine how happy and joyful life would be?! Did you also know that if you actually "love" something... you know that feeling of love? That is a vibration feeling and it actually alters the molecular structures of things in a positive manner.... google this... its absolutely amazing!
I am desperately trying to do this for myself and I would absolutely love it if some of you joined me in loving yourself!
I want to challenge you to be your own dopamine... love yourself so fucking much that you can instantly create that chemical release when you think about yourself!!
REMEMBER - Your body is more then just a face covered by makeup, a body covered in designer clothes and is most definitely more then just a number on a scale my love.
