Confessions of a Belly Dancer
And this is the very thing I want to share with other women: the gift of self-love.
When we are able to replace self-hate with self-love it is truly a joyful experience.
And so that’s why I have built this "house" called RealWomensBodies.com in the hopes that you will come over for a visit. I hope that you will help me decorate it with your photos and stories. I hope that you will be uplifted by the articles and images and stories. I hope that you will want to share a guest post and bring your friends to our little get-together.
I hope that you will come away like I have, feeling better about your body more often than you used to. We've all had years of detrimental conditioning about how our bodies should look, but I know that over time we can each change our perspective and learn to love ourselves just the way we are today!
So even though I confess to self-criticism, I want to tell you that much of it has been replaced with self-compassion making a real positive difference in my life.
Will you come visit and share your story? I'll be waiting with a warm welcome, a virtual cup of coffee, and a hug!
Thanks and I look forward to "meeting" you.
