Loving Me the Way I Am

My Declaration of Independence from a Negative Self Image.
I am not a swimsuit model. I am 5’3” with funky legs and man shoulders. I have no waist and no butt to speak of. I need to accept that I will never be a swimsuit model, but I am healthy and I take care of my body. So I will start there, I love myself for taking care of me the healthy way, and I will take care of myself and learn to love my healthy body even if I don’t have that hourglass figure I want so much. And will remind myself of the things I do like about myself.
I have hips (thanks to my children!)
My belly is the flattest it’s been in 10 years
I have great hair
My eyes are a cool color
I have strong, long finger nails - even after years of biting
Well it’s just a start, but I will get better at it with practice.
