It’s okay to not love your body. . It’s okay to have bad days. . It’s okay for difficult and uncomfortable emotions to come up. . These are some of the things I wish was reminded of when I first started my journey to finding more peace with my body. . When you focus just on “loving your body”, it becomes yet another thing that feels far off in the distance and makes you feel inadequate for not yet being there. It skips over the deep (and lasting) healing that takes compassion and patience. . It starts with you being gentle and compassionate with yourself. Inviting in forgiveness. Starting to make decisions from a place of self-respect for your body rather than anger and self attack. Recognizing that you’re body is always doing the BEST that it can. However, we often tend push harder and ignore the cries for rest and self care (which are required for healing and restoration - which happens when we engage the parasympathetic nervous system “rest & digest” through activities such as breathwork/deep breathing, meditation, restorative/yin yoga, reiki, etc) . I think it’s also important to remember that you are so much more than just your body. You have so many amazing strengths, gifts, and talents. Why not give yourself permission to focus on living your best life (in the body you have right now) and taking care of yourself along the way? Why not explore getting lost in the joy of rest and play. Discovering what truly makes you feel “lost in the moment”’. . Thinking of making a blog post about what I’ve learned (and wish I would’ve known before) on this journey to finding peace with my body. Would you be interested? Blog, video or maybe both?!
In the spirit of showing up more just as I am, owning who I am and my body completely while giving less fucks about what everyone else thinks. . A few months ago I stepped way out of my comfort zone to take a pole fitness class and other dance classes. The first few I spent a lot of time trying to figure out how the hell to move my body, feeling pretty awkward and uncomfortable at moments and barely being able to hold myself up 1 second (if that 😂) . I could have only focused on the frustrations of what my body couldn’t do, but instead I am choosing to celebrate all the things it can do. Celebrating the strength (both inner and outer) that continues to quickly build through this movement journey. I am finding truthfully I only feel uncomfortable and awkward when I begin comparing what I am doing or how I look to someone else’s journey and expression. But most importantly, I am giving myself permission to take up space and show up exactly as I am. I am learning how to be present with my body and sensual without feeling overwhelmed by feelings of shame or judgment. . So here’s to celebrating your body. Celebrating your right to do whatever you want in the body you have right now, just taking small steps wherever you are at. Here’s to celebrating looking different than everyone else and discovering your own flow in the journey. . Shoutout to @sandrine_aerialdance for being such an amazing teacher and helping me redirect my thoughts through your encouragement and energy. And thanks to @empyreanarts for providing such a truly welcoming and accepting studio where I feel safe to fully show up.
//SHIFT your perspective// This is what I heard when I was asking for help recently. . I was out on a hike after work to clear my head and when I heard the words “shift your perspective” as I looked up and this is what I saw. . Blue skies, warm temperatures, water and breeze flowing, sun on my skin, breath flowing through my body. . These simple moments ground and connect me back to my body, my heart, my spirit, and most importantly gratitude.

Truthfully, I’ve felt kinda “off” lately. . Nothing is “wrong”, things are generally good. But, I’ve been feeling the need to back off from always being on social media consuming and spending more time being present in my surroundings. The challenge is sometimes being around lots of people can overstimulate my nervous system if my own energy is slightly off. Ideally, I would go out in nature where I immediately feel grounded, nurtured and connected. But today that didn’t happen. I came home after work and crashed after doing some energy clearing work on myself, thankfully woke to a beautiful sunset and decided reconnecting to my body and exploring some movement might help me feel a little more playful and less stagnant. I’ve had so much fun exploring new types of movement over the past few months, even if it meant getting outside of my comfort zone. . Just sharing some of my process along the way. Sometimes we just need to get out of our heads and tune back in with our body. I feel much better after letting all the rules go and just going into a little flow as I explored what felt good in my body (without comparing myself to anyone else) something so freeing about just sliding around on the floor😂
