I'm more than my body

Thursday, April 25, 2013



Colleen Clark's comic about body image gave me pause for thought.

Having read the comic and the article, I ventured to Colleen's art prints for sale, and found society6.com/colleenclar
k/Your-Body-Znj_Print
It is entitled "Your Body" and the caption reads; "Your body is not the best thing about you. Your body is not the worst thing about you.".

Sometimes I think I am too focused on losing weight that I forget about the other facets of me!

Thank you Colleen for thinking of the rest of us.

    This is SO true and I believe it is very important to love ourselves just as we are!! When we truly love ourselves we want to take the very best care of ourselves (mind and body) because we are worth it!!

    many years ago a dear friend told me...."YOU ARE MORE THAN YOUR BODY" I thought that was so strange to say, but then I thought about and thought about it....she was right....
    and your comments are so true as well....My body is not the best or worse thing about me......I truly am more than just my body

    thanks for sharing....see you are a loving caring person sharing her thoughts with other loving caring peeople
