Having a Healthy Relationship with Your Body: Learning from Bethany Hamilton, Ta-Nehisi Coates, and Mirna Valerio

Having a Healthy Relationship with Your Body: Learning from Bethany Hamilton, Ta-Nehisi Coates, and Mirna Valerio

In today’s world, it’s tough to love our bodies. 

Most of us do not fit the Hollywood mold, and we are constantly bombarded by sales pitches for products, diets, and workout regimens that will help us to get the body we’ll finally love. 

But will they really? And will we really? In reality, we need self-love now in order to love whatever comes down the road, or we’ll never be content. There will always be something that isn’t quite right or perfect. 

And guess what? We teach that to our kids. 

Our children aren’t born with body issues. We teach them that. Either directly or through outside influences that we allow into our lives. 

So what do we do? 

We change the curriculum. 

In this blog post, we’re looking at some incredible people that teach us how to love our bodies now along with an activity and some discussion questions to talk about with your kids. 

What do you think about this? How has the world affected your ability to love your body?

Maya Angelou: Be Your Best

Maya Angelou: Be Your Best

“If you’re always trying to be normal, you will never know how amazing you can be.”

We’re starting off #blackhistorymonth with an incredible woman: Maya Angelou. 

Maya was most notably known for her writing - her autobiographies and poetry - but did you know that she was also a singer, a dancer, a streetcar conductor, screenwriter, director, actress, professor, and lecturer? She was kind of incredible, to say the least!

She also experienced some tough things in life, and yet she drew strength from her struggles rather than letting them destroy her. Maya teaches us that we can learn from what we experience in life and we can use it for good and to connect with the world. Regardless of what we go through, we can R I S E. 

In this blogpost, you’ll find more about Maya’s life and a fun writing activity with some discussion questions to talk about with your kid(s). There’s also a list of additional resources to learn more about Maya and some of her works.

Amelia Earhart: The Courage to Try

Amelia Earhart: The Courage to Try

“Never interrupt someone doing something you said couldn’t be done.”

Amelia Earhart is one of the most iconic women of all time. She set over 16 records in aviation and continuously pushed herself to reach the next goal. She’s perfect for #wowwomanwednesday.

In today’s world, we are often crippled by fear. We worry about what could go wrong. We worry about the details and if we’re capable. We worry about what others will think about us. And the ultimate worry: “What if I fail?” 

Amelia believed that women should try to do what men have tried. She was passionate about trying. She also believed that failure is an invitation for others to try. What an incredible mindset: failure is an invitation, not an end. 

So what doors will you open today? What will you try to do? Maybe something that you’ve been afraid to try, but secretly longing to do? 

When will you stop floating, and start s o a r i n g like Amelia? 

This blog post has more information about Amelia as well as an activity & discussion questions to talk about with your kids.
