Your Body is Enough, Just as it is

by

A dear client shared this quote (see below) with me and I thought it was appropriate for Mother’s Day (and everyday, really).

On this day, I’m thinking of you: mothers who have lost children, those yearning to be mothers, those who have lost their mothers, those with strained mother relationships… I see you. 

I can’t have kids, but God has blessed me in other ways and I’m a proud “mama” to 2 cats + 1 dog, and absolutely love serving my clients and FB Community. And special thanks to my Mom (and all the Moms reading this). For teaching me to work hard and making me stronger.

This day can absolutely be hard on me and so many other women. But I wanted to remind you that Your Body is Enough. Just as it is.

 

Your Body is Enough, Just as it is ❤️

“Imagine a woman who believes it is right and good she is a woman.
A woman who honors her experience and tells her stories.
Imagine a woman who trusts and respects herself.
A woman who listens to her needs and desires.
Who meets them with tenderness and grace.
Imagine a woman who acknowledges the past’s influence on the present.
A woman who has walked through her past.
Who has healed into the present.
Imagine a woman who authors her own life.
A woman who exerts, initiates, and moves on her own behalf.
Who refuses to surrender except to her truest self and wisest voice.
Imagine a woman in love with her own body.
A woman who believes her body is enough, just as it is.
Who celebrates its rhythms and cycles as an exquisite resource.
Imagine yourself as this woman.”
-Patricia Lynn Reilly

 

My favorite line:
Imagine a woman who trusts and respects herself… Imagine a woman in love with her own body. A woman who believes her body is enough, just as it is.

 

Ready to love your body more and believe that you are indeed worthy?

Here’s one thing you should start doing TODAY.

It will change your life.

And if you have kids, it will change their views on food, fitness, and their own body image.

Start speaking kindly to yourself.

Don’t say anything to yourself that you wouldn’t say to your children or your best friend.

So if you wouldn’t tell your 6 year old that they are a failure because they ate 2 cupcakes at a party, why do you think it’s okay to tell yourself that?

What do you tell your bestie that indulged on some cake or pizza at a party? Hopefully something like this: “I’m so glad you enjoyed yourself at the party and loved the foods. Be sure to have a balanced dinner with some protein and veggies tonight.”

That’s right. Give yourself grace and permission to move on. No snowballs, all or none, or quitting.

What if you workout to care for yourself because you deserve to be loved, respected, and cared for. Not as a form of punishment or to “earn” your food.
