Break the habit: hating on your divine temple
Even typing out the words divine temple instead of “body” I scoffed to myself. There are plenty of choice words I could use to describe my body. But as part of #yogagirlchallenge I am committing to 21 days free of shaming my own body. No more body checking, no more guessing my weight, no more hiding on bad body image days. I am completely aware that thoughts are going to come up, but instead of ride the “I hate my body train” I’m going to choose, to see my body as it really is. Just some skin, muscles, bones, organs, tissues, cells. It just is. And maybe from there we can work up to beautiful temple or house of the soul or body of magic and rainbows and shit like that.
But today all I have to say is okay body, you’re okay.
