When you look at the mirror do you focus on how lovely your skin looks, how toned your tush is or how simply dazzling you are? The sad truth is most women look in the mirror and zero in on our flaws. We don’t see fit legs, we see fat legs. We don’t see our bright eyes, we see crinkles and wrinkles. We don’t see a strong torso, we see a muffin top.
It’s time to stop looking for what’s wrong with our bodies and look for what’s right. The next time you look in the mirror find 3 positive things about yourself. Did your legs carry you through your run? Be grateful for them, no matter if they are dimpled. Can you appreciate your laugh lines for what they are? A sign of a fun life?
Appreciating your body where it is right now is the first step to body acceptance and a cease fire against the war on yourself. Once you get in the habit of complimenting yourself, you will be surprised at how many things you can be grateful for. Instead of running out of compliments, you will keep finding more.
And don’t you deserve to feel fabulous?
Now go run!
