All Naked Bodies Are Beautiful

When it comes to bearing it all, a lot of people get really self conscious. No one is really immune to this because as we age our bodies change for various reasons (weight gain, pregnancy, wrinkles, what have you....) and now and then we get moments of doubt. It's natural. But you have to be like a rubber band and be able to SNAP BACK just as quickly as you find yourself snapping into a state of mind that has you seeing red.

Me being me and all, which is to say super bossy and opinionated and stuff, I wanted to let you in on a little insider's secret: all naked bodies are beautiful. I would know because I have seen a TON of naked bodies. And no, it's not because I'm slutty. It's because I used to be a massage therapist. Like, legitimately.

I went to massage school at 19, and by 20 years old I was a Licensed Massage Technician (LMT) in the grand old state of Delaware. I practiced for more than two years, and I was pretty good at it. Can you guess why I quit? You have to be quiet for an hour....pssshst! I had the hardest damn time shutting the hell up! So, needless to say, it wasn't necessarily the best profession for talkative old me.

But one thing it gave me was a lot of...hehe...exposure.

If it's one thing I can tell you from seeing so many clients in the buff, it's that there is no such thing as an "ugly" body. Sure, some bodies are skinnier than others, some larger. They are all shaped differently, but when it comes down to it, I never really gave anyone's size a second thought. I never in my career thought "wow you could stand to lose a few!"

Instead, it gave me the impression that all people, regardless of size or shape, are beautiful. I wish that more people could FEEL this way. No matter what your size, it's more about the confidence you carry, not the weight you carry. Feel good in your body and your attitude will shine brighter than anything else.

Take it from me: whatever you look like--today, right now, IN THIS MOMENT--is not only 100% fine, but it's beautiful. Dig deep and do what it takes to get into an attitude of self confidence and self- love. Feel good about your body and about yourself because you deserve it.
