creative joy, bench and light

A positive body image goes beyond liking your looks. It encompasses taking good care of yourself and leading a fulfilling life.

Want to get to know yourself a bit better? Go through these 100 questions for self-discovery. A few of my favorites:

ϟ What are you STARVING for?

ϟ If you had an extra $100 to spend on yourself every week, what would you do?

ϟ Where + when do you get your BEST IDEAS?

ϟ How long can you (comfortably) go without checking your emails or texts? How do you feel about that?

ϟ What are you ready to set into motion, today?

On change and radical self-responsibility. Mara writes:

…I take myself with me wherever I go. I am dedicated to fully embodying my life and my skin. I am dedicated to shining, even when it’s uncomfortable. I am dedicated to staying with myself, no matter what, all the time, without exception.

It can also be when I slum in my sweats past noon.

Well-fed is when I go to yoga.

It can also be when I ditch downward dog for couch slouch.
