Mom used to always tell me not to just love those who were mean to me, but to kill them with kindness. The reality is though that many of us are the ones who are mean to ourselves and to our own bodies, and I ask you today what would happen if you killed your body with kindness? That is, what would happen if you actually took care of your body the way it deserves to be treated? What would happen if you eliminated all negative body talk from your thought patterns and refused to engage in mean thoughts about your body?
Be kind to yourself. Treat your body with kindness in both what you put into it and in the way you allow yourself to think about it. Kill the meanness that pervades in your self-critical mind and give yourself permission to be perfect as you are today.
