Love Your Body Love YourSELF

“Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope.” – Maya Angelou

My yoga teacher once said, “A True Love Story Never Ends.”

I’ve never been in love. Not with a man or woman. Not with myself.

Before love, comes respect.

It’s interesting what parts of me think is love:
eating those chips late at night
weighing myself
trying to preserve myself by constantly finding fault in others & myself

And what might truly be:
Sitting with uncomfortable feelings
Choosing to inquire within instead of eating
Facing things I don’t want to face: fear, social interaction, jogging, paperwork, feelings
Tackling hard things
Healthy Confrontation

I’d like to have hope again.
I don’t want to give up on myself, because I’ve come so far, and part of me knows that I’m worth it.

    In your honest and courageous ways, you are inspiring me. When I dip very low, I want to give up. But it just takes one person to be a fulcrum to change that downward spiral. Let us be there for each other – let us be there for our Selves. It can be so difficult. Progress not perfection. And let us look forward……Blessings! Blessings! ❤ ❤
