To Expose or Not to Expose?

Have you heard of the Exposed movement? It is where you take a picture of yourself in underwear or other revealing clothing, and you basically tag your body up with positive things. I've seen a lot of people posting these pictures up on their blogs lately. I think it is awesome, very cool, and very empowering. So, of course, I want to do it.

But there is a problem.

You are probably thinking the problem is embarrassment. It isn't that I'm embarrassed to bare it all on the internet, even though I am in many ways. I can overcome that.

The problem is; I was thinking of this picture and I was trying to think of what I could say about all these body parts, good things to say...and other than my thighs...I can't think of a single thing.

That is the problem. Not my body, but my perspective of my body. I should be able to think of good things about the parts of me. But I can't, I simply can't.

But I'm going to change that. I want to learn to love my body, mainly these parts:

My thighs
My hips
My stomach
My arms
My shoulders

And I make this promise to my blog and my readers.
On 1/1/2011 I will expose myself to the world,
and by that date I will think of reasons to love the above parts of me,
and more!

Are you ready to expose yourself?

If not..maybe you should start thinking about why.
