“….This is a call to arms. A call to be gentle, to be forgiving, to be generous with yourself. The next time you look into the mirror, try to let go of the story line that says you’re too fat or too sallow, too ashy or too old, your eyes are too small or your nose too big; just look into the mirror and see your face. When the criticism drops away, what you will see then is just you, without judgment, and that is the first step toward transforming your experience of the world.”
― Oprah Winfrey
Taking care of yourself doesn’t have to be a chore.
You can eat well because you love how food tastes, as well as how something makes you feel.
You can eat well because you know your body is the vehicle through which you experience life, and you love the energy you receive when eating well.
You can enjoy food because it is meant to be enjoyed: take in the sights, aroma, company, and tastes you experience when eating a meal.
You can eat certain foods simply because you enjoy them.
You don’t need a permission slip to take care of yourself in the ways that work for you.
