I used to say the meanest, cruelest things to myself. I still do, but now I catch myself and try something different. In this video, I share about the last time I injured my knees and how I managed to shut up that mean voice in my head.
love notes to my body
Writing love notes to my body transformed my life. I love sharing my love notes and hearing about the ways they inspire you or challenge you.
I also really love reading love notes that other women write to their bodies. They fill up my own creative well and validate how powerful this practice can be.
With that in mind, I want to invite you to share your love notes with our community. I don’t want this platform to just be about me and my body. I want it to be about all of us, all of our journeys to accept our bodies.
Your love notes can be anonymous. They can be signed. Your loves notes can be doodles or drawings and not notes at all. They can be whatever you want them to be.
Will you join me in sharing a glimpse into your experience with your body?
Email me with your offering, and I’ll share it in a future blog post. Be sure to let me know if you want credit or if you’d prefer anonymity.
Fingers crossed that you’ll say yes!
I am making a commitment to you that I will pee just as soon as I feel your first tingle. I will no longer ask you to wait until you’re uncomfortable. There is no need to create stress for you and my pelvic-floor muscles.
I realize that emptying you is a simple way I can love on myself. It’s also such good practice for me to pay more attention to Body’s subtle communication. I don’t want to make you scream for my attention.
I’m sorry for all those years that I held you past good reason. Taking a break to relieve you while teaching always felt tricky. Leaving a class of kiddos unsupervised is never a good idea, but why didn’t I ask my teacher neighbors to keep an eye on them more often? Here’s another way I hurt myself because I’ve struggled to ask for help.
Making you wait for hours sounds so silly, especially because I preached at my daughters, when they were potty training (and after), to go as soon as you nudged them. So here’s my promise to you: I will pee just as soon as you tell me too. Even if it’s inconvenient, like on a road trip or in the grocery store. You’re worth it!
