So, I thought I’d start a tradition over here at Another Piece of Cake. Every Friday I will be posting Blissful Body pics and quotes to help us celebrate our bodies that much more. (With a little humor added it. I can be funny. Sometimes.) Without further adieu..
Saw this one on my friend Devin’s feed this morning. She’s a healthy, dynamic lady and I’m glad she shared this:
“You are not a mistake. You are not a problem to be solved. But you won’t discover this until you are willing to stop banging your head against the wall of shaming and caging and fearing yourself.”
– Geneen Roth
This is a call to arms. A call to be gentle, to be forgiving, to be generous with yourself. The next time you look into the mirror, try to let go of the story line that says you’re too fat or too sallow, too ashy or too old, your eyes are too small or your nose too big; just look into the mirror and see your face. When the criticism drops away, what you will see then is just you, without judgment, and that is the first step toward transforming your experience of the world.”
– Oprah Winfrey
Loved this one from rationalhub because I believed the opposite for a very long time…
“Eating is not a crime. It’s not a moral issue. It’s normal. It’s enjoyable. It just is.”
– Carrie Arnold
Enjoy your Friday!
