Hey it’s Tay over from Taydor Tott! J For those of you who don’t know me, I’m just an everyday student blogging about the life of a college girl who’s interested in food, health, fitness, and fun! One of my favorite posts was on Love Your Body Day on October 21st. In honor of that day, I gave my body some extra lovin’ and wrote it a supportive note J
Dearest Body of mine,
You know what’s strange? We spend every minute, every second, every waking moment together, yet I don’t think we have a very close relationship. As much as I should appreciate you, I’ve given you such a hard time over the years, and never gave you the trust you deserve.
You’ve served me well for so many years (22 years, 6 months, and 6 days to be exact), allowing me to breathe fresh air and freshly baked cookies; see the ones I love and the bright colors of a rainbow; hear teachers lectures and the sounds of country music; taste my favorite foods and ones I could live without; and touch the prickly grass or my little sister’s hand. You’ve given me something that we only get one of, something that so many people get taken away in an instant, something that we all take for granted – a life. You’ve allowed me to laugh, to cry, to love, to run – to do everything I’ve ever done.
I’ve given you a hard time about your thick legs. But those legs are strong and have carried me many miles. I’ve given you a hard time about your poochy belly. But that belly is mine and no one else’s. I’ve given you a hard time about overeating. But I need to learn to trust you and know that you want what’s best for me.
Dear body, I thank you. And here’s something I’ve actually never said to you, and something I should say to you more often – I love you.
Love, Tay (The "Brain" to your body)
How do you show your body your love and appreciation?
1. I fuel mine well with my favorite foods such as…
And yogurt messes
2. I give it exercise that I love
3. I try and make the most out of every situation and enjoy every minute of every day with my family and friends.
Thank you for reading, and check out my ramblings over at Taydor Tott!
