Learn to Love Yourself

How many times have you looked in the mirror and said "my thighs are huge, my boobs are too small, my stomach is flabby, my arms jiggle too much." Would you say that to a friend? Absolutely not. But it's so hard to not say those things to yourself, isn't it? Treat yourself as you would treat a friend. Find one thing you love about yourself and say it outloud. Tomorrow find another thing to love about yourself. Do your strong arms  carry a child everyday? Do you have killer calves from pushing a stroller? Are your soft abs the result of bearing your children? Do your babies love to cuddle against their soft Mama? Learn to love your body for what it has given you and for what it's capable of doing!

Yesterday I tried a one hour Zumba class at a local gym. I've been taking a 50 minute Zumba class once a week at a dance studio since January. Not knowing quite what to expect, I was afraid I'd have trouble keeping up with the gym class. I ended up having a blast and caught myself smiling most of the time. I had very little trouble keeping up and I left there pumped with confidence. Even the instructor complimented me at the end of the class! :-) I may be soft and squishy, but I love myself today because I can do a one hour Zumba class without dropping dead from a heart attack. LOL

What do you love about yourself today?
