Body Love? The whole me.


I realize that yesterday’s body love picture was really just my neck and head. I don’t carry a lot of weight in those areas, so that part of my body is easier for me to appreciate, or at least not be embarrassed about. But I want to move past embarrassment and toward love. So my goal today was to get a full body shot. I tried a lot of my different normal activities; dishes, washing the table, sweeping, etc. But I settled on a picture of my coffee break. I love my coffee break in the morning. I usually sit at my end of the table next to the sliding door. Today, all week really, we have been drenched in rain, and it is gray outside. But still soothing. Our rascal of a German Sheppard came over to investigate, she often sits at my feet during this little ritual, occasionally barking at the chickens who dare to perch on the top of our log fence. I think I like this picture most because of her unexpected appearance. It is harder to stand alone and therefore even more exposed.

October 2: Today I love that my wily dog has no idea whether or not I am picture perfect, making it easier for me to be picture ‘perfect’. I love that I have a body capable of standing comfortably, without aches or pains.

Frugal Self-Care of the Day: taking the time to grind the dark roast coffee I love, instead of just using what was ready. Watching the rain. Taking pictures. And even now the few minutes of writing and reflection.
