Love Your Body For It is a Representation of Your Life

Tonight I was dancing with my five-year old son, before we all went out for dinner.  

I had my seven month old baby on my hip and was swinging my son around with my free arm.  As I swung him in a circle, I noticed my flabby tummy, as I was dressed still in my bikini.

Now I know that I don’t have an excessively flabby tummy.  

I know that after four children and several intensive hours of yoga, I am blessed to have the stomach that I do.  However, I still hate it.  After eleven days of lying in the sun, I actually have a line across my tummy where the skin folds, and the sun does not reach.  In fact, I have several folds, where the sun don’t shine.

Yet, as I danced with two of my sons, numbers two and four, I glanced at my tummy and felt glad for it.  In that instance, I no longer hated it.   I felt thankful for the folds and lines that are there.  For if I didn’t have them, I wouldn’t have had the four beautiful children the I do.

Sometimes you just have to accept that you cannot have it all.  

I cannot have four kids and have a taut stomach.  Something has gotta give and in this instance, I am glad to have a stomach that folds like an envelope.

Love your body and love yourself.  It is the first step to eternal and lasting happiness.
