This is a collage I made a few years back and I have decided to use it as my entry for "52 Figments". The collage was inspired by a book I have read over and over again by Sarah Ban Breathnach called " Simple Abundance". This book is so full of inspiration, quotes and wisdom...I absolutely love it!
Here is what Sarah writes about weight-loss: "Self-love is the only weight-loss aid that really works in the long run. Don´t fight your hunger, respond to it with nutritious food that appeals to all your senses, not just taste but sight and smell aswell.Trust your body, it will tell you what you need. Eat when you´re hungry, drink when you´re thirsty, sleep when you´re tired, get in harmony with your body through regular exercise, nourish your soul with meditation.
Every woman has a weight that´s ideal for her, at which she feels the most comfortable, has the most energy, feels well and likes the way she looks.
Go within and visualise her, See what weight she carries and ask her to help you achieve it with the power of love."
Isn´t that amazingly simple!? How often do we forget to love ourselves? Forget to treat our bodies with respect? I remember that Jamie wrote a post about balance , matching what´s on the inside with what´s on the outside that opened a new perspective for me. Now, let´s get those beautiful women inside us OUT for all the world to see so we can stop dreaming about what we´d like to look like and finally become that person on the outside too!
