Did you have a tough day?
Maybe you looked in the mirror and noticed something sagging that hadn’t sagged before. Maybe your jeans fit a little tighter than usual. Maybe someone made a comment about your body that wasn’t well received. Or maybe you’ve gained a few pounds since the last time you stepped on a scale.
These are the moments that can derail our day and send us into a tailspin. And it’s moments like these that make it easy to forget how glorious your body really is.
The truth is, your body is an amazing machine – and it’s the vehicle through which you experience the joys of life. Without your body, you’d never know what it’s like to kiss a lover, hug a family member or feel the summer sunshine against your skin. You body is a symphony of trillions and trillions of cells working tirelessly to support your life and all the experiences therein. So let’s not forget that you’re nothing short of a walking miracle.
Sure, all of us have our moments. And all of us have things that we’d like to change about our bodies. But let’s keep it all in perspective of how amazing we really are. And in doing so, let’s workout not because we hate our bodies. Let’s workout because we love our bodies.
