Today I'm talking about the importance of finding a sense of belonging in your body in a society that may not love and support the type of body you have in the way it deserves to be seen. This is a tender episode about how sometimes we can engage in unhealthy or harmful treatment of our bodies because we're trying to fulfill this need for belonging in a society that only leaves space for a select few.
"I think that's a big part of belonging: to love and accept ourselves no matter where we are in our health journeys, no matter where we are in our size."
- I mentioned Sarah Jenks - a friend who led the Live Free Retreat

I would love to hear from you!
What do you love about your body? What do you appreciate about what your body has done for you?
