Respect your body. 💛Fuel your body. 🌱Challenge your body. 💪🏽Most of all- LOVE YOUR BODY. 🙌🏼 It has taken me many moons to grasp this very statement. Years and years, I did not respect my body... In reality- hated my body.
At the age of about 7, I remember trying a dress on and having the owner of the boutique tell me the outfit didn’t flatter me because I was “too big”. I remember the exact moment going back into the dressing room and looking at myself in the mirror. That new image of myself would haunt me for a long time to come.
What I found that destroyed this image I had of myself was
1 Corinthians 6:19. My body is a temple, and it is not my own. Love your body, and it will love you back. Treat it with respect because it is a beautiful temple. No matter how you are built, you are a masterpiece because you were formed uniquely and purposefully.
Feel healthy, be healthy, fuel your body with purpose!
But it’s not secret diet or out of this world workout you have to start with, it’s about loving yourself and your body will progress and you will reach your personal goals. 📸: @photographybylisamarie •••••••••••
