      Thank you Wendy!! There was a blog post of yours that changed my whole mindset actually. It was the one where you talked about thanking our bodies. I copied part of it and printed it out and put it in the bulletin board above my desk at work and I look at it every single day. It’s the one that talks about self criticism and what our body’s job is? After reading that I started (this is going to sound so corny lol) thanking my body every single morning, but I do it like this:
      “Thank you mouth for smiling at people and making them feel welcome in my life.
      Thank you throat for the sound of laughter.
      Thank you eyes for taking delight in watching children play.
      Thank you hands for petting puppies and waving hello to people.
      Thank you stomach, for getting butterflies when I’m excited or happy.
      Thank you feet for being so stinky that I can actually make jokes about it”
      (I think you get the idea)
      I am, and always have been, very self conscious and down on myself, but now I can’t hide behind a glass so I’ve really noticed how people react when I smile at them, or wave hello, or laugh at silly jokes. It’s pretty awesome actually! (So big huge thank you for writing that post that set that in motion for me! Xo)
