Wishcasting Wednesday--Love

"Where do you wish to send some love?"  That's Jamie's fantastic Wednesday question this week.  And I have an easy (or at least easily available) answer, because I was just talking about this last night.

This is me two years ago.  I weigh a bit more now (gained back almost everything I lost in 2007), but I look mostly the same with shorter, spikier hair now, so it's a good representation of the me that's looking for the love from myself. Kinda scary putting it out there, though.

I wish to send love to myself and my body.  I have spent a lifetime in battle with my weight, my thighs, my hips, my feelings about myself.  I'm tired now.  And I'm way more overweight than when I thought I was the fattest thing ever.  And I have an ongoing injury that may or may not heal completely.  And I just need to love my body and take care of it.  That doesn't mean I don't want to get smaller and stronger and all of that.  I just want to do it with love and caring and kindness and understanding.  I just need to figure out how that works.

I'm right there with you on this wish and appreciate your sharing it. I lost weight two years ago and have since put it back on and am trying to gear myself up for starting over.

You are beautiful and I pray you learn to love and care for yourself as you deserve.

Hugs!
