After I had kids, I remember feeling like my body had betrayed me.
I was physically someone I didn’t recognize.
My childbirths didn’t go to plan (and you know I had a 7 page birthing plan written out…and it definitely did not go down like that).
I had put on over 50 pounds with each pregnancy.
Breastfeeding was not making the weight come off.
Movement felt excruciating. I didn’t want to jump or run, I was just too uncomfortable. This was so hard for me, since I had been extremely active before.
In addition to my own thoughts about my body, as women, especially as women in male-dominated technical fields, we constantly get either subtle (or explicit) messaging that our bodies are wrong. Or unwelcome. That even existing in a women’s body is inconvenient.
I didn’t realize at the time that by thinking that my body had betrayed me, I was creating a rift that was causing the exact results that I didn’t want.
I can’t erase the messaging that society puts out there, but once I see it I can then make a conscious choice as to how I want to react.
Same with my own thoughts. Once I make them conscious, I was able to then choose thoughts that did produce the results that I wanted, which was to have a loving relationship with my own body.
Your body is always on your side. No matter what. Your body is a source of knowledge and wisdom. And you can choose thoughts that honor that.
