30 Women in 30 Days – Day 3

Love your body for what it can do, not for how it looks.

Celebrating our physical strength is so important in realizing what makes each of us beautiful and unique.  We can’t all be ballerinas, body builders or yoga masters but we all have energy and the strength to accomplish amazing things.  Each of us can choose to channel our energy into nurturing our body and becoming more loving toward it.

A prima ballerina has strength and skills that take years of practice to perfect.

Physical strength isn’t just for the young.

Tao is a yoga master, ballroom dancer, former actress and model and lover of wine. She is 93 years old.

Earnestine Shepherd is a 74 year old body builder.
She didn’t start working out until she was 54.

It pays to be fearless.
