Body Image

January 14 2007 Body Image Newsletter

Is your body image getting better or worse as you age? Mine is getting better, and it's certainly not because I'm getting younger and more beautiful! It's because my focus in life is changing:

1. I'm more relaxed about most things as I get older, including how I look in a swimsuit.
2. I have dreams and goals! I want to write books and articles and essays --- and the more involved I get in pursuing my dreams, the less I think about food and my body and what others think.
3. I know that beauty is more than my appearance: beauty is accepting myself so others feel accepted in my presence, loving me so others feel loved by me, seeing the good and positive things in life and people, so others see the good and positive in me.

What increases or decreases your own body image? Once you pinpoint what lifts you up or brings you down, you'll be better able to keep the good and broom the bad.
