My Body Pledge of Allegiance

Friday, March 29, 2013

My Body Pledge of Allegiance:

Today, I vow to start loving my body � no matter how I am feeling, how I look, and wherever I am in my journey.

I promise to stop the self- criticism, negative self talk, and to be present in each moment to stop and acknowledge my negative thoughts, and how I am feeling. This will help me realize that almost everything my inner critic says is not true, and to change my beliefs.

I pledge to never again to participate in a barrage of bashing of myself. This includes picking myself apart when I make an error in judgment or a mistake � no matter how big or small.

I promise to begin treating my body with respect by feeding it what it needs, and taking care of it so it can function as efficiently as it can - no matter what my age.

I promise to recognize that I can only ask so much of my body, and that it deserves to sleep and rest in order to prepare for the next day, and I will honor by giving it at least 7 hours of sleep every night.

I promise not to consciously or unconsciously compare my body to others.

I promise not to be influenced by the media, or the fashion industry in what makes a woman beautiful, or the right size. I know that the media does not set the standards for beauty or my self esteem, and is there only to further their own agendas, and line their pocketbooks.

I vow that I will no longer let the scale or a certain size define me.

I promise to recognize that all body types can be beautiful - including mine.

I pledge to recognize my strengths, achievements, and attractiveness. I will affirm to myself every day that I am wonderful just as I am in that moment.

I promise not to criticize myself, punish myself, or feel guilty when I make a mistake. I am human, not perfect; I know that my mistakes are a way to help me learn, which then helps me become stronger.

I pledge to be true to myself and others because it is who I wish to be.

I promise to stand up, and speak up for myself and others when I hear something harmful or emotionally demeaning said. We all deserve the respect and love of others.

I vow that I will remember that I deserve to love myself right here and right now � in every moment.

Today, and every day from here forward, these are my choices!

    Thank you so much for the re-post of my blog, the Body Pledge. I am very happy that the Body Pledge is striking a chord with so many here on Spark, and know that it will find it's way out into the world to help others who are in need of learning to love themselves.

I hope that you, and anyone else you chose to share it with will feel free to adapt it, just as I did, as you need to for your own personal growth. Its time we free ourselves to become who we wish to be and so much more, and that you'll stop by to follow the Loving yourself series as it continues.

    emoticon it-- emoticon for sharing it.

People get caught up trying to force changes in their eating and exercising, while often neglecting the most important changes--on the inside: our thoughts, beliefs, and what we tell ourselves.

When we genuinely love ourselves we want to treat ourselves well and make choices that enhance our well-being and growth, and we don't berate ourselves for not being perfect.

Blessed Be, Amanda emoticon

    Lovely goals--bashing yourself never does any good, just wastes time and energy. Wishing you a great Easter.
