I don't feel like answering this! It makes me sad--again. This is feeling a little bit like a journey through the things I lack. I don't feel integrated with my body. I often feel like my body fights against me or that I fight against it--we are definitely at war too often. I frequently catch myself thinking that I hate myself, and when I'm thinking that it's really my body, my physical self that I am railing against. So, no. There are no moments of integration, but I want them very much.
Lest this seem all dark and dreary with no shiny lining, I am doing something to make this happen. I was going to post about this later this week, but apparently now is the time. I am building an art journal group to focus on body--weight loss (or gain--whatever each of us needs), exercise, most especially acceptance and building self-esteem and self-love. Creating bodies we can live in, love in, appreciate, love.
So, if you also want to get comfortable with your body, make healthy changes in a kind and compassionate way, learn to revel in your physical self, you're invited to join in. (And feel free to grab the image for a button on your blog if you like--there's a smaller version in the sidebar, too.)
One note--this is not something I'm doing as part of my professional coaching services although it may turn into some sort of e-book or course or something in future. Right now, this is just me putting together some prompts and ideas and research to help myself and hopefully help those who come along for the ride. I think it's going to be fun, but none of this is stuff I've tried before, so we'll all be doing everything together, no leaders, no followers, just companions.
