Ep. #33 – Learning To Model Body Acceptance

Today’s conversation is with a dynamo woman – Kelly Lynae. She is an amazing human, singer/songwriter, and creative marketing professional. AND… she is just now learning to love and accept her body. She answers the question “What is my body for?” with ” I want my body to be a tool for my passions and for my story to play out.” She is done trying to make her body look a certain way for others. The sooner we can do our own work of self-acceptance and answering the question “What is my body for?” the sooner we can authentically model this for our kids and break generations of dysfunctional thinking surrounding our appearance never being good enough. We can model joy and living life to the fullest now, not waiting to look a certain way. Don’t we want this for all of our kids? It starts with how we view ourselves. You are enough just the way you are.
