The following is an honest open letter to myself that I thought other moms would be able to relate to. xo
I know that you really don't like the look of your body right now. I know it can so easily consume your thoughts. I know it sometimes triggers your anxiety and depression when you focus too much on what you don't like about your body.
You deserve better.
Not a "better" body, but a better thought process.
I know that telling you all of the thousands of good things about your body won't change a thing about the things you don't like about your body. Not because you aren't grateful, but because society has molded your mind for 30+ years with unrealistic expectations.
But you are more than just your body.
Life is more than just your body!
Your body is simply an instrument for you to accomplish a million little things. A million little things that can add up to be something grand. Something awe-inspiring. Something magnificent. A million little things that can potentially help a million people. Because you have a body, you can potentially add happiness to millions of people's lives by using your body to do a million little things.
So please, please allow your thoughts to be consumed with what you can do because you have a body to house your spirit. A spirit that is full of love and has a strong desire to help everyone you possibly can.
If you focus on that, you can and you will spread happiness to millions of people!
