Hello Monday, March 29. 2021
Starting to Blog without edit as a practice, place holder and introduction of who I am as Jill Weiss Ippolito. Learning to allow this concept of self to change and grow, feeling a big shift in small subtle ways, and the desire to record this as an exercise, practice writing and discovering progress.
In my home yoga practice struggling, after several weeks of no yoga or much movement at all, I learned how to take a selfie with a timer and saw myself in postures. Surprised, grateful for the ability to still psychically create shapes that make me feel extra alive, I posted about my acceptance of BID (Body Image Distortion) which I know little about as it comes and goes like the weather. I believe calling it out shrinks its possibility to pester me. And being bold to share invites connection from others and builds community- which I love doing!
Busting out of the silence. Honoring Self Love as a Radical Act.
Creating a Blog instead of a FaceBook post that disappears or belongs to that platform is ownership of my own words that is honoring creation and writing. Yoga and writing are both "practices" not perfections. It helps to keep showing up and building on without heading anywhere for any other reason than enjoyment. I'm not sure how often I will blog but am glad I started!
Winning! Made it to yoga today after weeks of avoiding myself. I learned how to take a selfie on a timer (wow!) and checked in on reality in the mirror. Revealing BID (body image distortion) & perfectionism takes away the menacing power it has, so aaah hello! Visibility is rebellion! Aging is more comfort in my skin, being human and loving myself as is. Progress not perfection. Ha! Recognize those shorts I’d never wear in public? Who still has theirs? Fearless today. #selfcare #loveyourself #yogahealing #inspired #aginggracefully #yoga #womeninbusiness #deepshift #coaching #traumainformedyoga #yogatransformation #uprisingyoga #love
