Thoughtful Thursday: Loving My Body, Flaws and All

I’ve been in a love/hate relationship with my body for years now.

I’m learning to love it though.  One step at a time.

And do you know what I’ve noticed has happened since I’ve started appreciating my body and acknowledging all the amazing things it has done?

I’ve started taking better care of it.

I’ve been working out more, loving the changes, ever how small they may be.

I’ve been looking at the good things I see in the mirror instead of the flaws.

I’ve been watching what I eat and drinking more water to fuel my body properly.

You see, I don’t want to have a love/hate relationship with my body.  No one is perfect and that’s okay.  That doesn’t mean I don’t want to be the best me I can be, though.  I’m going to continue to work hard and quite beating myself up and nitpicking what I see in the mirror.
