Body

Giving thanks for my body

Able bodied – adjective: Fit, strong, and healthy; not physically disabled.

*******

Every single day I walk up stairs, get out of bed without pain, play with my dog, stand in the kitchen to cook meals with my family, and much more.

Most of the time I don’t think about what my life would be like if I couldn’t do all of these wonderful things. What if I was constantly in the hospital? What if I was paralyzed? What if… you get the point. 

Today I am giving thanks for my body. I love that my legs can walk me to my classes, my arms can lift a sheet of cookies from the oven, and my feet can splash in a pool. I am so blessed to be healthy and alive! 


I’m so happy I can play 🙂 [..and take dumb/scary pictures ;)]

I’m so grateful that I have arms to open up and bear hug my little sister.

I feel so blessed to be able to run.

By giving thanks for my able body, I am making sure to feed it right and exercise it. I refuse to do drugs or anything that harms the body God blessed me with. I think exercise can tie into stress relief and I am thankful that one of the hobbies that I enjoy (running) is something that I am able to physically do. It all connects and pretty much  shows how awesome God is. Just saying.

My life in 30 days, day 18

My life in 30 days, day 18 =  a picture of your biggest insecurity

I found this one tough because I’m not sure if it means something on your body you are insecure about (being short. . *sigh*) or something in your life. I chose life because the survey is titled “My life in 30 days”, not “my body in 30 days.”

This is obvious and I would think that many people feel the same way.

I don’t wait to be a failure in life by other people’s terms. (That sounds really stupid as I type it!)

I am totally happy with the simple things in life and wouldn’t mind being a stay at home mom for the rest of my life. What makes me feel insecure is when other girls say “You really want to be a soccer mom???” “What ever floats your boat… I’m going to be a doctor!” I hate that. I hate those conversations, they make me feel insecure even though I know I will be happy what ever I do in life, I don’t like when people judge me by my UNIQUE choices.

That is that. It was nice to get that off my back 🙂

Today is January 4th … already?! I am still on break for school and it feels kind of weird because the rest of the world is back to work, but I’m not complaining! I slept in a little bit this morning and it was great. Really great.

I don’t have many plans for today besides some closet cleaning inspired byJamie who cleaned her closet and tweeted about all of the cool stuff she found! I hope I find cool stuff in my closet 🙂

Have a good day everybody!!
