Let me ask you, what is your attitude towards your body?
How do you see yourself when you look in the mirror?
How does your reflection make you feel OR should I ask how does society make you feel about your own reflection?
For decades the media has had a lot to do with how we perceive what a healthy body image is. On a daily basis we are bombarded with pictures with filters or that have been photo-shopped to show unrealistic bodies. Add in all the shake diets, weight loss pills advertised throughout social media it is no wonder we are hard on ourselves.
From our teenage years and now from an even younger age for our daughter’s, nieces, grand children it is engraved into our subconscious that to be accepted by society we should look a certain way.
We have stopped loving the person looking back at us in the mirror.
Body image has become such a negative topic over the years with women across the world, young and old, comparing themselves to celebrities, fitness models or the latest image fad. I remember a couple of years ago women were comparing their waste lines to the portrait size of an A4 sheet of paper. This type of “body fad” sends the wrong message to women across the world, which can lead to serious physical and mental health issues.
As women, we are all beautiful in our own right. Why should we put extra stress on ourselves to look a certain way or be a certain size because society says we should.
Be proud of your body and accept that no one has a perfect body.
We as women have the ability to empower one another and raise each other up created a Positive Body Image Movement for ourselves and the generations of women to follow.
Surround yourself with positive uplifting women, appreciate all that your body can do and when you look in the mirror don’t just glance at the reflection looking back at you; REALLY look into that beautiful reflection and love the person looking back at you.
No one has the right to judge the way we look. Embrace your beauty and all that you are because no matter what society says you are BEAUTIFUL.
