Now that we’re thick in to the school year we’ve settled in nicely to a homework routine.
Our little homework station has prevented us from being buried by the mountain of paperwork and assisted to make homework time more happy.
Today I had the opportunity to elaborate more about this little project on Studio 5.
On a different note, If you’ve been following Studio 5 this past month they’ve started a movement called the Body Love Challenge.
The idea is to get people to stop talking about what they hate about their bodies and focus on what they love instead.
At first I was on the “meh” train.
But something must have shifted because today I started in on my ritualistic flaw picking which generally accompanies my Studio 5 appearances.
I stopped myself.
I realized how much damage I was doing to myself when I started down that road.
Hard as it was I decided to pick one thing I loved about myself instead.
I love my hair!
I got to thinking, when someone says in a group, “I hate my big thighs” every person in that group unconsciously makes a mental note, “Big thighs=bad”.
Then it becomes of vicious cycle of self loathing every time you look down, even though you may not have ever given any thought to your thighs.
For some reason we tend to adopt other people’s criticisms of themselves and own them as our own.
Must be careful of what we say about ourselves in front of others.
Despite my earlier reservations about the Body Love Challenge I now think it’s not only a positive thing for ourselves but for our society as a whole.
So what’s your most favorite thing about yourself?
