All bodies are good bodies. As Unitarian Universalists, we affirm the inherent worth and dignity of every person, and this month, we remind ourselves that this includes not just our minds and our hearts, but our bodies as well. After all, it would be pretty hard to live this life if you did not have a body!
The body you have as you move through your life is YOUR body, precious and unique and amazing. So celebrate your body! What do you love about having your body?
Do you dance on your toes? Knit with your hands? Smile with your face?
Do you love your elbows and knees? Do you have a favorite dimple or freckle?
Is your hair curly, straight, long, short or gone altogether?
What does your body do well? What does your body work hard to accomplish?
Take some time this month to thank your body for carrying you through the world, and celebrate the ways that it looks, feels, and moves. And if you are tempted to think negative things about your body, find a mirror and remind your reflection: All bodies are good bodies!
