Your Body is a Temple

I know that it’s so cliche to talk about your body being a temple but it is a temple. It is sacred. I almost titled this “Your Body is a Wonderland” but no one needs John Mayer stuck in their head this early in the morning. Sorry! tem·ple /ˈtempəl/ Noun: A building devoted to the worship, or regarded as the dwelling place, of a god or gods or other objects of religious reverence. Holy dinger isn’t that perfect? Your body is the dwelling place for your soul, and if your soul isn’t a piece of God, the Universe, Mama Earth, Great Spirit, or stardust, then I don’t know what is. We are all sacred.  You would never tag a church, sacred grove, or holy place with ugly and hateful words, so why is it okay to call your body fat or disgusting? I love the idea or imprinting onto our…

5 Ways To Stop Hating Your Body

Weight issues… such a big topic and one so intertwined with loving your body and loving yourself. I’ve been on both sides of it, loving and hating my body… feeling like I’m too fat or not fat enough. (Read my body story) Struggling to separate who I am from the number on the scale or what people think of me. The thing that always annoys me is the pictures that start out “Real women… (have curves/ aren’t a size zero/ ect)” or “Real Men… (want a woman with curves, don’t like bones)” to which I say “We can do better.” Now I completely understand curvy women (I am one) wanting to say “Look! I can be what I am and still be beautiful and attractive and wanted and sexy.” but to do that at the expense of those women that don’t have curves or are naturally thin or like working…

Fierce Body Love: Your Body is Beautiful

I’ve had a complicated relationship with my body. I’ve always been fat, I hit puberty and suddenly I was one of the biggest girls in my class. I let it define me for a really long time. It didn’t just define what I thought about my body but what I thought about myself. I felt like my weight made me an unattractive, unworthy, person. If you’ve read my post, The Body Sacred, then you’ll know about my weight struggles which are a bit topsy-turvy. Slowly I started this self-love journey and I suddenly saw my body in a brand new way. My weight wasn’t defining how I felt about myself, how I felt about myself defined how I felt about my weight and body. I tentatively started to fall in love, and that’s when I saw that I wasn’t taking care of my body. I was over-eating every day, I…

Self-Care: Massage and Connecting With Your Body

Good morning, Sweets! Here in Oklahoma, the weather is chilly, perfect for snuggling under blankets and I’ve been doing that a lot. It’s my own personal Heaven. I hope that you are enjoying the changing of the seasons wherever you are! (p.s. This post contains an affiliate link, so if you purchase it, I get a small percentage! Thank you!) It’s Self Care Sunday! Today I am going to talk about massages and how much I love them! My first professional massage was about six months ago and I was so scared and nervous about laying on a table, nearly naked, with a stranger massaging my body. It was surprisingly delightful. At least it wasn’t for me. Which is saying something because I suffer from anxiety. Being around people I don’t know, and in new situations, has the potential to freak me out pretty badly. However, this blog post isn’t about…
