On Oprah’s Where Are They Now plus-size supermodel Emme Aronson says, “I always said I want to show off the shape that I have because it’s my shape and I workout hard. I swim. I do boxing. I kickbox. I do yoga. I love hiking and swimming and I love being active so this is what I’ve got. This is what I have. I’m not going to try to be something else.” Here she brilliantly promotes a positive body image. But loving what you got and being comfortable in your own skin is something that can be applied to how you feel about your insides as well. In fact, love often grows from the inside out.
Loving who you are, big or small, ill or healthy, neurotic, clumsy, or awkward, is one of the paths toward greater happiness. It’s not an easy road, but one that’ll lead you to all the things you truly want in life.
This week our bloggers are bringing us back to basics with posts on building self-esteem, practicing mindfulness, lowering your expectations, becoming more self-aware and understanding your past’s influence on your present. They’re all building blocks on the road toward greater self-acceptance, love and happiness.
