I've written on this topic before, but I just can't say enough about it. It's so important that each of us, men and women, learn to really, really love and nurture ourselves and part of that is loving and accepting our bodies as they are.
I know that many people reading or hearing that statement may automatically (and somewhat reflexively) think "I do love myself and my body." And I also know that some of those people actually don't. They think they do, but they don't.
Maybe they take time out to exercise... but what I want to know is, do they smile when they do it? Or are they looking at themselves and trying to beat their bodies into a different shape and feeling unhappy and dissatisfied?
Can you imagine truly loving your body the way it looks right now, and forgiving your body for every way in which it disappoints you?
