I really got inspired writing about loving what you’ve got enough to put on a bikini and reading your awesome comments, so keeping with that loving feeling, I have two videos to share today!
First, the onslaught starts young…
Next…would you say the things you say to yourself to a little girl?
Sometimes when we look at how kids perceive the things we do and say when it comes to diet, weight loss, exercise, and bodies, it puts things into perspective!
Most of my readers don’t have kids (although I know there are some moms out there!), but we all probably know a little girl. For me, it’s Ella, my 4-year-old cousin. She is so smart and so special and I love her so much!
I’m sure you all have a little girl in your life too — so maybe her picture is something you should add to your Vision Board as a reminder to stop talking shit about yourself (or talking shit in front of her). When you’re ragging on your thighs, just stop and think: would you ever say something so harsh to such a lovely, innocent, perfect girl? …Sooo why would you say it your lovely, perfect self?
It makes me think of this Marilyn Monroe quote.
While I love that sentiment, I think we can take it a step further.
“All women and girls should be told they are beautiful…because they are.”
