Everyone has a different idea of the perfect shape for a body. Just for instance, many women have gone from asking if our bums are too big to asking for butt implants to make them look bigger!
When I think of my body as perfect, I’m not thinking about its outward shape, but I’m thinking with gratitude about how perfectly it functions.
To me, a perfect body is one that functions perfectly! I haven’t a single health complaint so I can gratefully and cheekily affirm “I have a perfect body!” Or, prayerfully: “Thank you for my perfect body”.
I like to sneak in affirmations like this to myself because I do think they can make a difference in my beliefs, perceptions, expectations, and even outcomes.
