Web Girl Kathleen Shares A Beautiful Body Positivity Poem (Listen)

Web Girl Kathleen revealed on-air that she repeats positive affirmations to herself every morning and suggested that everyone should write themselves a love note from time-to-time. Since it's the beginning of the year, she suggested that positivity and mindfulness be a top priority for those practicing new year resolutions in 2019.

Over the weekend she noticed a poem by writer Hollie Holden about body positivity had gone viral and she wanted to share it on-air. 

Today I asked my body what she needed, 

Which is a big deal 

Considering my journey of 

Not Really Asking That Much. 

I thought she might need more water. 

Or protein. 

Or greens. 

Or yoga. 

Or supplements. 

Or movement. 

But as I stood in the shower

Reflecting on her stretch marks, 

Her roundness where I would like flatness, 

Her softness where I would like firmness,

All those conditioned wishes 

That form a bundle of Never-Quite-Right-Ness, 

She whispered very gently: 

Could you just love me like this?
