There is not a one among us who isn’t insecure about something. As confident as we may be in one area is as shaky as we can feel in another. This week, I want to encourage you not only to work to give your confidence a boost, but also respect the fact that a lack thereof isn’t weak, but human. If there is one thing I have learned as an instructor it is that no one is madly in love with their bodies, but the more you work with it, the more you can be mesmerised by it.
Seeing what your body can do is an amazing way to look past the size of your thighs (or dimples in them) and embrace the way your abdomen changes after the miracle of birth. Instead of being fearful of aging, we can work now to ensure we are strong well past mid age and by watching our body language, we can gain valuable information about how we really feel about ourselves and those around us.
Today, I want to really encourage all of you to pay close attention to your bodies in a new way. Look past the small “imperfections” and take in the bigger picture. Your body is not just an ornament, it’s your instrument. How do you treat it? How do you use it? How much do you respect it?
