SC Day 22

Woo hoo! I am welcoming earth week with open arms. I am looking forward to feeling grounded and safe.

Today I was supposed to assess my body. Usually I feel comfortable in my body. There's no reason for me not to. I do some times negatively judge it. One time I sat down and made a list of everything I hate about my body. It was long. Afterward I decided to never do it again because it made me feel so crummy. I feel better about it than I used to, though. My body is generally healthy. I am a healthy weight, I try my best to eat healthy and exercise.

I'm going to try and not think about the negatives. I could think and obsess about those for hours. Instead I'll jot down the positives:

I love my eyes. They are a shade of blue that I adore.
I like my weight. I'm not going to lie- I am thin, but a healthy weight. I'm grateful for my metabolism, because I really shouldn't be thin with all the junk food I used to put into my body. I realized that someday I will gain weight, and changed my eating habits.
I like my natural hair color. My hair is thin, and I don't like that, but the color is okay. It's a light brown or a very dirty blond color. I dyed it once, and I liked it then too.
I even like my birth-mark. Most people would hate to have a birth-mark on the side of their head. I don't mind it. It makes me different.


  1. WONDERFUL! :) Thank you for this uplifting perspective! I am happy for you :)

  2. OOoooo, good stuff! I am gonna love earth week, too!

  3. I love what you said about making that list - yes, why do we focus on the negatives? You're a smart cookie!

    It's a much lovlier list the one you've given us here. I am taking a page from your book, and focusing on what I do like.

    Good job! You rock, as always.

  4. I'm a strong believer in staying away from the things that make you feel crummy.

    I loved reading the things you like about your body. It felt like a celebration of you!

  5. I love how you are so positive about your body. I wish all young girls and women were like this. Well done!!! xoxo
