To this day my kids still talk about “the place where mom went down the water slides with us!” I remember as my husband walked off with the kids to go swim, I sat there enjoying the peace and quiet. Sitting there looking pretty, I didn’t dare move cause others may see my imperfections. As I people watched, I couldn’t help but notice a trend…all the women were sitting around covered up and looking pretty and all the dads were smiling, wet and having FUN!!! I thought to myself… what am I doing? Am I having FUN?? Who says I can’t swim with my kids with my imperfections and all! Besides I will NEVER see these people again! So I went and joined in the FUN! The kids were so excited to see me join along. Down the slides I went! The looks I got were hilarious. Some of the other moms were laughing at me as I came down the slides squealing with joy. There is no doubt I was having some FUN and created a lasting memory for my kids and myself!
Regardless what stage of life you are… weather it is bathing suit season or not. LOVE and ACCEPT yourself and stay connected with FUN!
Don’t get me wrong we all compare and fantasize about having a great “summer”, “younger”, “leaner” body from all those images we have obtained as “ideal” from those altered magazine covers we glance at.
As Robin S. Rosenburg, PH.D has suggested consider, “fantasizing in a different direction — about being comfortable with the body you actually have.” In order for us to see change, it all starts with accepting our current circumstances.
If you can’t accept your body the way it is today… you will not accept a “perfect” body you “think“ you need to be happy. I think many of us can relate to this Body Image Campaign I came across. You can loose the weight or fix the imperfections… you will continue to find imperfections until you truly accept and love the inner you! So take the step and embrace yourself! Get to know YOU and face the challenges and change the unconscious thinking patterns so you can be the person you were meant to be! Fall in love all over again, with yourself and live the life you desire!
Need a place to start… consider the FREE Hay House Summit. Last year, the ear piece was attached from my phone to my ear for 7 days… listening to Dr. Wayne Dyer, Louise Hay, Dr. Christina Northrup, Deepak Chopra M.D, Kris Carr… just to name a few. It is transformational!
So step outside your comfort zone and find some FUN: go dance, explore a new hobby, call up an old friend, save $ and have some FUN through Living Social or Groupon – what are you waiting for? When you are 80, 90 or 100 (still having fun!)…. you want to have some stories to share!
