These two amazing women have decided we are all way to hard on ourselves and are sabotaging our lives with all the unhealthy, negative, destructive views we have of our bodies. I think it is safe to say that I am one of the most guilty persons out there in this regard. I admit to spending hours naked in front of the mirror, examining every inch of excess fat, how far my tummy sticks out, how shapely my arms are, how close my thighs are to touching, where my cellulite is forming, how defined my back muscles are… It is so unbelievably fulfilling. I hate doing it…
So when I saw this #12ThingsILoveAboutMe pop up on Healthy Tipping Point, I knew this was God reaching out to me and desiring me to love myself.
Each month (or in my opinion whenever you feel like sharing something GREAT about yourself) let the rest of us know! It makes me so happy when I hear others express pride and admiration for their bodies or character! So share!!
My July #12ThingsILoveAboutMyself :
I have runners feet. They are not that pretty. But I love them so much… I love them so much that I rarely wear flip-flops/sandals/heels because I am afraid of stubbing a toe or getting stepped on and not being able to use my feet for their purpose– to run, walk, jump, hike, bike, fitness classes… Anything! Even though I am 5’11, I have relatively small feet. I wear 7.5-8 ! I think that is what makes me feel so feminine (since I am almost 100% of the time in running shorts/t-shirt with hair in pony tail/messy bun/french braid)!
My toes are all the “appropriate” length… and they don’t bend at weird angles… and I am so protective of them!I don’t let anyone step on them! I love to have the nails painted some really loud, fun color!!
Thank you, Andrea’s Feet, for all that you do and continue to do for me 🙂
What is something you LOVE about yourself!
