We decided to start this blog to get women talking about their relationships with their bodies. We think we spend too much time thinking about what our bodies “should” look like and comparing ourselves to something that isn’t real, and we want to spend a lot more time celebrating our bodies for their function and their strength, for the way they wobble when we dance and when we run, for the hair they grow and the blood they bleed. We want to spend more time loving our bodies, and we want you to get involved.
There’s nothing wrong with your breasts. There’s nothing wrong with your thighs. There’s nothing wrong with your bum. We have bodies – beautiful bodies – to live our lives in and we want to find joy in them!
This isn’t about finding a dress to disguise your tummy, or the perfect pair of control pants. This is about spending time with your naked self and appreciating every part of you.
We all feel differently about our bodies – some of us love them more than others. Maybe you don’t love yours at all. But it makes us sad that so many of us feel like that, and we want you to join us on a journey through discovering and loving your body.
We want to hear from you. Here are some things to have a think about. Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org – you can send us an experience to share on the blog, or just send us a message. Let us know if you’re happy for us to publish it, anonymously or otherwise – and if you want to include a picture of your happy naked self, feel free!
- How do you feel when you’re naked?
- How do you feel when you see yourself naked?
- Do you wish you felt differently about your body?
- What do you love about your body?
- How has your body, and how you feel about it, changed over the years?
We’re excited about starting this project with you!
