Wash away the shame, guilt, disgust, unknown, discomfort of how my body feels, looks, and functions. Shame that it “attracts” unwanted attention (sway of my hips, curves, breasts, etc.) and un-acceptance at times. Guilt about enjoying, relishing, expressing, highlighting, trashing, ignoring (neglecting) and abusing my body. Disgust about how it feels, looks, and what it elicits from others (men). Not taking the time to get to know, experience, appreciate, and celebrate my body, its smell, its look, its taste…Discomfort of being with my body in tune with, highlighting, celebrating, sharing my body.
Replace it with comfort, love, acceptance, celebration, discovery, attention, and knowledge of my body and all the beauty it holds.
