It's summertime (at least here on the U.S. East Coast)! Ok, not officially - but we have had summer weather (even a first heat wave last week - ack!).
And so…we're already seeing a lot of "get that lard ass into shape" advertising (and blog posts) - and will likely see more as the season progresses.
How'z about, to counteract that crap, we do some Square-Peg (mindful nonconformist) counter-culture-y body loving instead!
Awhile back, here on Square-Peg People, we had a series of posts called Body Part Wednesday (the picture above was the logo).
The posts were interactive (I'd share a story about one of my own body parts and ask that readers share theirs) - and meant to bring attention & awareness (which is foundational to love) to different parts of our bodies.
Here are links to some of those posts:
Fun Feet (this one still makes me laugh - and blush)
My Left Breast, this one was written by my friend Luna (aka Maripat Oberg) the rest are by yours truly -
This one's about butts - it's a recording.
Your turn: Whatcha got?
Point to something (a post - yours or someone else's, a pin on Pinterest, whatevva)
that reminds you that your body - NOW - is wonderful and awe-inspiring! Or makes you giggle
(but not in a snicky way - in the adoring way a mama would giggle at her babe's attempts to grab shafts of sunlight).
So what's to love about YOUR body? Everything!
