I’m excited to formally announce the new title of this little blog I write.
If you follow me you may have noticed the new URL, Don’t Fear the Fork, appear a couple of weeks ago. I had been thinking of names and waiting patiently for the Universe to inspire me for months. Then, one day when I was walking into a Starbucks, a student athlete was walking out. Her jersey said “Fear the Fork.” She was a student at University of Missouri – St. Louis where their mascot is a Titan.
I thought it was very clever but doing the kind of work I do in Body Positivity it also got me thinking. So many of us ‘fear the fork.’ Our relationships with food can become obsessive. Always thinking/worrying about what we just ate, are about to eat, want to eat, should eat, and on and on….. Through my work as a Body Positive counselor, I help people heal their relationships with their body and find peace with food.
Let’s make self-compassion our priority over caring about what others think! Let’s practice radical self-acceptance and strive to be the best versions of ourselves. Let’s be comfortable in our skin and in being or authentic selves. Let’s all experience the freedom that comes with these actions!! Can I get an Amen?!?
