When are you going to love your body?

For some people, the answer is that they never have. The images, comments and the peer pressure of having the perfect (whatever that means) body is so overwhelming. We’ve been trained from a young age to loathe certain parts of us, to live in fix-it mode and to be in conflict with our bodies.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m not advocating sitting on the couch all day, filling your body with crappy food and mentally zoning out.

What I AM saying is that you are a LIVING MASTERPIECE. Emphasis on the word LIVING.

Just like an artist, we can fine tune, emphasize, tone down or however you want to tweak, but this all takes place WHILE you are living — in the present.

WHILE you work on making a career change.

WHILE you say yes to speaking in front of an audience.

WHILE you make plans to go dancing.

WHILE you shop for clothes that fit and flatter (forget about the number on the label)

WHILE you put up a picture and profile on a dating site.

WHILE you are doing your best loving between the sheets.

We are in the habit of putting ourselves down in front of our friends and family. The thought that we can never do enough or be enough has become second nature. Then we justify putting our lives on hold until we get to just the right number on the scale or until we can squeeze into a pair of jeans we’ve been saving as “inspiration.”

I’ve been there, done that — until I figured out how much it was costing me: time, happiness, freedom, fun, opportunities, connections, deeper friendships, career changes.

What are you giving up while you’re waiting for just the “right” moment?
