Do you love your body? For years I compared my body to everyone else's - models, actresses, siblings, friends, strangers. Well, you know the danger that comes from comparing. Growing up, my grandmother would slap my legs and warn me, "You are built like your mother who is built like her mother. Watch yourself or you will be big just like them." I heard it over and over too from my dad. When you hear something long enough, especially in your forming years, you believe it. It has only been in recent months that I've truly felt comfortable in my own skin. More than comfortable actually, I really love it and the more I love my body the better I feel about myself.
I love Facebook. Each day I meet new people and I learn something or I'm inspired. Yesterday, my Facebook adventures introduced me to a lovely woman who shares her own delicious life on her Spirit Moves Dance blog. While visiting her blog, I watched this video that I had to share.
I adore Eve Ensler. Listen to this brief clip. She asks, "Do you love your tree?"
I answer without hesitation, "Yes!"
