After looking at me, you may assume that the main body image issue I deal with is weight. However, much like the average person, my relationship with my body has been much more complex. In my own body journey my challenges have been “much larger than the weight”. In founding See Body. Love Self.™ I am offering resources in areas that extend beyond just weight. As you continue to join me on this journey we will focus on challenges in many areas, including:
- Body Image- what we see in the mirror from head to toe, how we feel about what we see, and how we choose to express that feeling to the world.
- Body Abuse- the unhealthy interactions that we have with ourselves and others and how they connect to our own beliefs and feelings about our bodies.
- The Special Needs Body- health and physical challenges within our bodies that alter our appearance, presenting unique challenges in learning to love our bodies.
All of these areas are part of my body journey, making them important to the support that See Body. Love Self. offers as well. To begin a healthy love relationship with my body, I had to realize that my issues with my body and the messages I was telling myself about what was in the mirror were about more than just weight. When I began to understand that, the complete healing of my my broken body relationship began.
Akilah S. Richards, co-founder of The Life Design Agency has been such an integral part of my personal body journey and the birthing of See Body. Love Self. Through Life Design Sessions with Akilah, I was able to uncover how my personal life experiences were a part of my Divine Purpose. It is such a liberating experience when you discover the power behind your OWN story and begin to use it to impact the world. So, when Akilah asked to interview me for a Voice Lesson podcast forExecumama.com I was honored and thrilled! Take a moment to watch the video, peek in on our conversation, and let me know what YOUR thoughts and feelings are afterwards!
