Loving My Imperfect Body

June 14, 2019

 

Who else grew up learning (inadvertently or directly) that arms that are not toned and tan needed to be covered up, even when it's hot outside?
 

One thing my 30's has taught me is to reevaluate damaging messaging that teaches me to be ashamed of my body. This morning I put on this dress, looked myself in the mirror, and reminded myself that these arms are precious just as they are. With these imperfect arms I'm a Sign Language Interpreter providing for my family, I'm a painter, these arms comfort and hold my children.
 

So if you live in the Pacific Northwest like me, IT'S HOT today. Please remind yourself of all the wonderful ways that your imperfect body supports you and allows you to do the things that you love. Then put on those shorts, that bathing suit, the tank top. Because you deserve to be comfortable in this weather!
