Have You Ever…. Wrote a Body Love Letter?

Why not love ourselves? Why not write ourselves love letters? Go ahead and give it a try. Start cultivating gratitude until your garden is overflowing with unconditional love.  Below is a letter I wrote to myself last night. I hope it inspires you to write your own body love letter.

If you write a love letter to your body, please link it in the comments below and I will reblog it!

Oh Body, you have been with me since day one and will be with me until my last breath. I’m so grateful for you!

Thank you for my  wild hair that is a reflection of my untamed heart. I love having size 11 feet that allow me to walk long distances. I love being six feet tall, having fat around my belly and tiny breasts that will never be considered voluptuous. From my scalp to my toes, inside and out, I love you more than any beauty style or product.

All of our scars tell stories that have made us who we are. From broken bones that healed to bruised hearts that continue beating, I am so lucky to have you. You never stop working to keep me alive and I’m so grateful for you!

Screw this whole idea of hating you. How could I even live without you? I couldn’t! We are one and in love and will be together for as long as possible.

With unconditional love, Leah


Diy therapy book cover


“D.I.Y. Therapy: Healing Depression” is available through Amazon; available as both an e-book and a paperback.

If you’re suffering from depression I strongly encourage you to seek help. If you can’t afford a therapist find a supportive mentor, teacher or healer who can help you discover inner peace. Healing is possible IF you are open and willing to commit to a self-care plan.

You are Beautiful – book excerpt

Go to the mirror right now and tell your reflection you love her.

Say clearly and out loud “I LOVE YOU”.

Love your body, it’s the only one you have. Be grateful for your body. Tell yourself that you are beautiful. Say clearly and out loud “I AM BEAUTIFUL”.

There are images everywhere of how people are supposed to look. You see models and movie stars with perfectly smooth skin, skinny bodies, wearing revealing clothing, painfully high heels and a gallon of makeup. This is only one idea of beauty. It is not real though. It is an illusion. You are being sold a way of looking and told you will only be beautiful if you look that way. It is just not true. You are beautiful. Look around you at your family, friends and strangers on the street. What do you see? Do you see perfection or do you see people who look different and beautiful? We are all beautiful in our own unique packaging.
We have different skin colors, heights, weights, hair colors, and textures. We have scars, some of us have lost limbs or lost hair, but we are still beautiful. We are not all shaped the same way. Some of us are very curvy, some of us not so much. We like to dress in colorful scarves, jeans, skirts, boots, sandals, T-shirts! We are casual, elegant, messy. We stand out! Beauty is up to you, the individual. It is what you see and love. We create our own definition that belongs to each us and it is not the same.
Don’t believe that you have to look a certain way to be beautiful.
YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL no matter what anyone says.
