"I don't like my body."
Video: I hate my body - body confidence and body love
Can you say that you love your body?
That you wouldn't change any part of it?
I would love to answer “yes” to this question. Unfortunately, I can’t.
And it’s not just me. This summer, I spoke with so many amazing, beautiful women. Getting deeper, I realized not one single woman felt very confident, and secure, about her body.
Walking in a bikini, at the beach, I felt vulnerable and exposed, and that people were judging my body.
And I know this is even more present for women who are seeing their body changing, with menopause or anything related to hormones, health or habit.
I think body shame is… such a shame!
We all have very different bodies anyway. And we have one life (I don’t go into reincarnation yet…).
So why not just enjoy it?
Ask yourself the good questions.
I decided to use the teaching of Brooke Castillo, the most amazing life coach I know, who often says:
Ask yourself the good question(s).
The one which will make you feel really, really good.
In this very moment, at the beach, my good question was:
What if I was the most beautiful woman on this planet, anyway?
How would I feel about my body? How would I walk? And most important:
How would I take care of my body?
And I felt such a relief. People’s judgments did not matter so much. I didn’t have to change. I could simply be me, with my body. And I could love it.
So today, I want you to take 2 minutes to answer this question: what is you were “elected” most beautiful woman of this planet?
How would it feel?
And how would you take care of your body?
