Loving and Accepting Your Body

Dear Brooke,

For so long, I’ve struggled with the conflict I believed existed between loving and accepting my body versus wanting to change it. I know I’m not alone. However, I finally had what you would most likely call, “a mind-blowing” shift in my thinking. It is as follows:

Before, I used to think that if I really loved and accepted my body, I didn’t have change it. I could and should accept it at its current weight and shape. However, my new thinking is that BECAUSE I love and accept my body’s capabilities and strength, I want to manifest its full capacity. My love and acceptance of my body’s strength, power and capabilities are what fuel my desire to do things like lift weights, exercise, kayak, hike, swim, etc. Loving my body and accepting my body means that I will use it to its full-capacity. Loving and accepting my body means not polluting it with things like alcohol, sugar and foods that make me feel badly. It’s a truly MIND-BLOWING shift. It’s the love of this body that I have been blessed with which makes me want to see all that it is capable of. It’s the love of this body that has so much potential, that makes me want to manifest all that it is capable of doing.

I believe this with all my heart. In fact, over the last week, I did a total self-imposed detox of gluten, sugar, and alcohol. I lost over three pounds. I feel amazing. I love this body I’ve been given. It’s full of so much potential and I plan to manifest all of that potential forever.

THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart. SCS has been the best thing that has ever happened to my life.

With gratitude,
