Hi guys. I've choose prompt number 3 for my Wellness Wednesday this week. I have already typed it before Wednesday, but I thought it wasn't good enough. Then.. Here I am. In the cloudy Saturday morning, I have no ideas to make this post better. I don't want left myself behind, so I decided to post it right away. So sorry for late post!
Why I love my body?
Body is an entire physical structure of an organism, opposed to the spirit. ~ thefreedictionary.com
In my humble opinion, although body is an opposed to the spirit, the fully acceptance of body itself must be done by a soul. It's about balancing the two.
Loving body means grateful for every single strenghts and weaknesses that we have physically. It is not easy, especially when the actual appearance is not match with the expected appearance. Disappointed feeling will come a rise. Loving a body just a dream!
I've already heard about nice quotes like "don't judge a book by its cover" or "be yourself" for the entire of my life. I just knew it, I said it, but I didn't really understand it. Yes, understand the meaning of something sometimes takes time.
Time goes by. I am happy for who I am now, for my body as well. I love my body because this body is the one-and-only body where my soul laid by God. This body is not perfect as I wished for, but this is the perfect body for me!
Of course as teenager I ever protested God, why did He gave me this body. Why didn't He gave me that barbie look that everyone love. With that flat tummy, big boobs, tall body, sharp nose, pretty face, etc. Why do some people are good looking and the rest are just so so? Why God is so unfair?
Then I realized. Barbie is just a doll, Yanet! It's a doll to standardize people's mind, that when a girl see this doll, she'll feels bad, fat, ugly, not pretty, etc. Just like I was, so ungrateful for what I have. I did judge myself by my own appearance! :(
Yes, until now I still judge myself, but in a better way (I think). I make up a bit, do favorite sports, do diet, drinks a lot of water, blogging, and other favorite things. That's way I can feel healthy and happy. Feel happy makes me smile and smile good for body and soul. Yeah! :D *endless loop*
Okaaay, I think that's it. Hope you enjoy this short post and hope you love your body too. Bye! ;)
