When will you awaken to the fact that you only get one life – one body – one chance? And hating it does not serve you. In any way.
That one life and one body and one chance need you, yes need you, to love yourself and your body right now. No matter what you may want to change or improve or alter or simply accept. No matter. Because to do any of these things with any chance of feeling good and positive and loveable long term, requires you to lovingly accept where you are right now. Only true love allows us to change the way we feel and our actions and behaviours with it. Or simply embrace and accept and love where we are with no change or constriction or punishment. Only true love feels good. Everything else you might be doing? It’s not true love.
True love for you means you love yourself right now. All of you. The flaws, the imperfections, the bumps, the lumps, the curves, the angles. All of you.
Love yourself and your body just a little bit more today. No waiting or when will it be’s allowed. Just what feels good and true for you.
And show all those around you how’s it’s done. You’ll start a revolution.
