creative joy retreat, 2012, leaf and light

A positive body image goes beyond liking your looks. It encompasses taking good care of yourself and leading a fulfilling life. In this weekly series, I share some of my favorite posts from some of my favorite bloggers on this topic. Sometimes I also share relevant pieces that I’ve written elsewhere. Hope you find these links inspiring!

Learning things about self-care.

A powerful poem on shrinking women.

“Living your true life is an often gritty, risky, lonely venture, but it is also where deep satisfaction and aliveness live. It’s where and when you become alive. It’s where something shining and magnificent can arise, even though no one else may ever see it.”

Secrets for setting rock-solid boundaries.

A powerful question to ask yourself. Every day.

Tips for bringing your word of the year to life.

Practicing kindness during difficult times.

Creating a weekly menu plan.

Creating a bedtime routine.

Tips to remember for your first session with a therapist.

“As a little girl, my fear of being criticized trumped my hunger to feel alive, to have fun, to ride a bike, or to swim in the lake. As a grown women, though, I’ve learned that external sources of criticism don’t matter and that I can soften around my own.”

What’s your 10-word plan for the year?

“How do you find your way back to your self, to your ‘unstainable goodness,’ to trusting and following your path, when something or someone sends you spinning off course?”

Doing the hard things.

Making some day today.

A reminder: Your hungers are your north star.

Happy Sunday!
