Something truly amazing has been happening to me bit by bit and it's only now when I look back that I can see how huge it is.
I have never hated my body as such but in all honesty didn't like it much either, one day when I passed my full length mirror whilst I was getting dressed I stopped and looked, nothing new in that but this time I really looked I got naked and looked at myself bit by bit, as the normal negative thoughts appeared I found myself replacing them with positive thoughts, ie. my tummy is large and a bit droopy, well yes but it grew 5 beautiful children in there what a wondrous thing it did, same thing with the girls, wow they nourished5 children etc etc
I found myself doing this with every supposedly bad thing about my body and my face and hair, I gotta be honest I was just a little surprised at myself giggled at how silly I was being and got dressed. Well the next day still thinking about it I stripped in front of the mirror and I did the same thing still amazed I could do this, now when ever I look in the mirror I like my body in fact I love it, now don't get me wrong it hasn't got any more perfect I just understand what an incredible thing our bodies are.
This has led to so many new wonderful things, I am buying pretty lingerie which makes me feel even better about myself, my libido has gone through the roof, poor hubby is gallantly trying to keep up lol.
Amazingly I find myself eating better because I respect my body as it is I listen to it and eat what it is asking for, I'm not recording my food but I am losing weight because I am listening to ME, I analyse my cravings, am I thirsty instead of hungry, do I want carbs or protein etc hey who would have guessed my body knows what it NEEDS not what I just want.
I think 5 months into this "awakening" it is here to stay and I thought I would share with you all.
Take a minute or two and really look at that beautiful body God gave you, it may not be perfect or slim but it is a wondrous and amazing thing.
God made us and God doesn't make mistakes
