I used to wish I were tall, lean and skinny. But I’m not.
I am short, I am not fat, I am not skinny either.
I have boobs, I have a belly with a life of its own no matter how hard I try and do abs (hellooo, muffin top!), I have wide hips, I have strong thighs. Hell, I might even have bra fat but I didn’t bother to check in the mirror.
I will never be tall and lean and skinny. But that’s ok.
I practice yoga because it keeps me grounded. I practice yoga because my body, my mind, my heart, open. I practice yoga because it makes me a better person. Not perfect, only better, according to my own perception of what “better” is.
I don’t practice yoga to lose weight. I will never be tall and lean and skinny, and it’s ok.
This is me, then.
You? You might be tall and lean and skinny. You might be short, and skinny. You might be short and bigger than me. You might be taller and bigger than me. You might be a blonde, a brunette, a red head. You might have smaller boobs and wider hips. Or tiny boobs and tiny hips.
You might not look that way you want to look, but you know what? You are enough. You are beautiful the way you are. You are you, and it’s ok.
This is you, then.
