How to Love Your Changing Body

Throughout history women have mainly focused on their bodies and how they look to the outside world.  With so much attention to the body, how do we meet the challenge of the constant body changes? 

When you look at your body, what do you think?

Intellectually, we all know we get older and we all know we are getting older, yet our emotional life is in an uproar when our bodies don’t look the same.  Have you ever looked into the mirror and thought “who is that person?”  In your head you are still quite young, yet the body that reflects back from the mirror is an older, less familiar version.  Do you scrutinize every grey hair or potential wrinkle on the horizon, or have you simply stopped looking?

Why It Is Your Right To Be Selfish

Do you ever ask yourself “Is it ok to be selfish?”  Do you feel you have a right to make choices that are just for you?  Is there ever a time in your life when being selfish is exactly what you need to do?  Or do you feel allergic to the word…break out in hives just thinking about it?

The word “selfish” creates conflicting emotions for women.  On one side, it feels good to just think of yourself and not have to always be “on” for other people.  Then there is the other side, the one that society has laid down regarding a women’s role – the side that says being selfish is not what we would ever want others to think about us.  It’s just not feminine.

Your Purpose – Why Do You Want To Start a Women’s Group?

An excerpt from our book “Essentials for Starting a Women’s Group“…(see sidebar for all of the details)

********************************************************************
Step back and think about why you want to start a women’s group. There are many approaches to this question. 

Start by thinking about the problems you face in your daily life. Perhaps you are a mother who faces issues raising your children. Maybe you want to have greater control over your finances; or possibly you want to lose some weight, start exercising and lead a healthier lifestyle. Maybe you work from home and want to connect with other work-at-home moms.
