Fearful thought: My body is too big. The skin around my belly is too loose and saggy.
Miracle-minded Response: I recognize this thought as cultural conditioning. Because only “perfectly” bodied women are featured in the media. Because I watched my mom stop dressing her body because she didn’t like it. I acknowledge that my body is amazing and perfect as it is.
Fearful thought: My breasts are too small. My body could be categorized as “full” or “plump” if only I had proportional parts
Miracle-minded Response: Bodies are made in a billion different shapes and sizes and this is how mine is shaped.
Fearful thought: My skin will never be even or clear. I look like I can’t take care of my face. Like I have a bad face. Bad skin = bad.
Miracle-minded Response: My skin is normal. We hide our face and pretend like unevenness or blemishes only happen to some, but that is not true.

Miracle-minded Response: But another baby would be awesome!
Fearful thought: If I work out more, I can lose weight. Being skinny matters.
