Love your body NOW

Love your body NOW

That’s right, NOW, not after you go on that cleanse or when you lose five pounds, LOVE YOUR BODY NOW. Stop waiting for some outside circumstance to give you permission to love it! This lesson came up again after years while I was in Paris. After spending years hating my body, torturing my body, crying for my body to be different, when I was in college I finally made the flip. One semester my food allergies made me so sick that I actually started to care for my body. I choose to nourish it, to love it and to appreciate it for doing its thing so divinely. Since then my love and appreciation for my healthy body has grown tremendously in recent years as I’ve watched loved ones struggle with their health. Yet still, I’m human, and sometimes these things come up again for us to heal even further. In Paris, quite frankly, the food made me feel gross. I felt heavy, bloated and even got a terrible allergic reaction one night. As I was laying in bed that night after a warm shower, uncomfortable in my own skin and not feeling a whole lot of love for my body, I got the message CHOOSE LOVE EVEN NOW. And I did, and my body is still recovering from Paris and I am choosing to love it in each moment. I am grateful for this magnificent vessel I’m on this planet in, this healthy, working machine. My body is far from perfect but it’s mine and I keep choosing to love it, as it is right now. The more you love your body now, the more you’ll be guided to make loving choices for it. You’ll be guided towards the food and activities that make it feel good and nourish it. Eating and exercise becomes pleasurable and not punishment because your making your choices from love not fear. So stop waiting for the “after” picture, love what IS right now because the way to true transformation, boundless energy and body that glows is through love.
