I posted this on my Instagram and Facebook yesterday, and a lot of friends had positive feedback and seemed glad I posted it, so I thought I'd share it here.
The fact of the matter is, my body is awesome! It lets me stand on my hands and put my feet on my head! That's pretty fucking cool! Never mind the fact that I'm able to run and swim and dance and play, and my body carries me all over the globe. I'm so fucking lucky, and should be so grateful for my body for serving as my vessel as I travel through time and space.
My body is a combination of hard muscles and soft curves, and this is good. It's covered in beautiful art, and some scars. I'm proud of both.
I post pictures of myself (often in yoga poses) not to get praise, but because it makes me feel vulnerable, and I think that's a good thing to feel. Writing this makes me feel really vulnerable, so I think it's definitely the right thing to be doing!
Thank you, body, for being so kind to me, and I'm sorry I'm a bitch to you sometimes. I'm going to stop now! I love you!
