Dear Body of Mine…
Over the course of your life, your body is bound to do some weird shit that you don’t entirely understand. (I am currently rumbling with this in a big way).
Your body will fail to meet the “expectations” you had for it in some ways or all the ways.
When you travel through those space and places, please remember this:
Your body is always working FOR you.
It doesn’t hate you.
It hasn’t failed you.
If you think about it… your body has shown up every single day in big and small ways since the day you were born.
You can keep blaming her, berating her, waging war with her, being an ass to her…
but how has that EVER helped you to heal her, support her, or befriend her?
It hasn’t. You know it. I know it.
How about a different approach?
Maybe try extending a bit of gratitude to the brilliance that is your body?
Two simple words have the power to revolutionize any relationship (including the one you have with your body): THANK YOU!
Thank you for showing up to help me do life today and every day (even though I haven’t always shown up for you).
Thank you for not giving up on me (even though I have ignored, mistreated and, judged you).
Thank you for your efforts to heal (even if it takes a little – or a lot – longer than I think it should)
You don’t have to be grateful FOR the weird shit your body does, but I highly recommend being grateful WITHIN it because she is still fighting for you.
So, let’s practice, shall we?
Let me know, in the comments below, what you are deeply grateful for about your body.
