30 Day Challenge - My Body

As some of you may know, I struggle with some chronic health issues. Well, quite a few actually.

Most of the time I am somewhere between “fine” and “ugh,” but occasionally I fall into a pit of “goddamn it.”

One thing I have learned lately is that my love of myself and my body is off and on, mostly off, and I begin to hold resentment for this fleshy vessel that refuses to behave when I want it to. She is her own beast and has no consideration for what I need or when I want to feel alert and happy. Yep, like me, she’s kind of a bitch sometimes.

So today I decided to try something new - inspired by Lizzo and many of the self-love tweets I have been reading as of late, I am going to love myself.

As a tribute to me and my body (and anyone else who struggles with this crap) I am going to take a photo of myself every day and share a story. Some will be more interesting than others, but in an effort to lift up our imperfect selves and celebrate the lives we are given, I am going to pay homage to this body of mine.

I’ll post here and on Instagram - so if you don’t follow me, let’s connect! I’d love to hear your feedback and how you honor your imperfect self too.

Let’s create some new hashtags for self-love … I may need some help with this! 😂
