Be Happy With Your Body

Sexy is how you carry yourself, not how much you weigh! Self confidence is so sexy.

We live in a world where the look of our bodies is of great importance. I do not mean to say it isn’t, but sometimes we deal with problems which cannot be fixed immediately. Then we become unsatisfied with ourselves, disturbed in mind and even obsessed with self improvement. There is nothing wrong with wanting to be the best, but there is a great alternative to it. It is called self confidence. If you can only develop self confidence and accept yourself, you can be as sexy as those with perfect bodies, and even happier, because you would be free of worries over your little problems.

One of the problems is cellulite. Those pesky little bumps on the skin can drive anybody mad! They appear in all places and literary can make us unhappy. In spite of all the promises of cosmetics manufacturers, there is no cure for cellulite. There are only some treatments which can make your skin look better. However, there is a wholesome approach to life, which CAN and will make your life better, if you only apply it.

Here is what it is: take your body and your life as a whole. Do not single out one problem, or view it as a cornerstone for your troubles or unhappiness. See, often times we view something as a blockage to happiness. For instance, we think cellulite is something that makes our bodies unattractive and naturally, we want to get rid of it. We go on a quest to find the fast and overnight cure for this problem.

Though in reality, we do not need to “fix” cellulite. What we really need and fix is the perception of our bodies, our health and lifestyle.

The great news is that you are more than capable of introducing this positive change. You can start loving yourself more. If you love your body, if you are grateful to it, you can start caring for it more and a whole lot better. If you perceive it positively, you can improve your overall health level, which in its turn solves such minor cosmetic problems as cellulite.

I never thought my body was perfect, but after giving birth, I changed my mind on it. It is amazing to realize your body can conceive, carry, deliver and nourish such little, funny and adorable little angels. If you stop thinking about the appearance of your body, you realize how amazingly it is built and the great abilities it possesses.

If you can respect your body and love it, you can forgive it for not being perfect and then you will find yourself providing it with the best care. Change in diet, habits and lifestyle would eventually follow, eventually fixing most of the cosmetic problems you are dealing with.

As the pioneering American psychologist and philosopher William James has noted, “The greatest discovery of my generation is that a human being can alter his life by altering his attitudes.”

Great way to look at this. I agree that loving your body is a great way to helping it become what you want it to be. You care for it and do what it needs.

yes, women need to tune out the media and men that buy into the ideal of a woman's body- we are imperfect beings with cellulite and baggage...

Sorry for the late response Stacie L, but thank you so much for dropping by and commenting. Yes, I agree with you. Part of altering our attitudes includes tuning out media and men and their perceptions of an ideal body for women.
