Make peace with your body today my friend,
for it has toiled for many years just to keep you alive.
It has grown, weathered virus and disease,
healed countless wounds and fought many unseen battles, to keep your soul intact for its journey through this life.
Yes it has changed but it has been changing since the day you were born.
And it will continue to change until the day you die.
Make peace with this.
Striving against this change, is like trying to blow away the wind. Futile, pointless, misery-making.
Your body has served you well and done so with your daily hate and disapproval.
It has suffered years of daily, hourly negativity, pulsing its way from your brain to your cells…
Not good enough, not attractive enough, not perfect.
And every day you thought it wasn’t perfect, it really, truly was.
It was keeping you alive, supporting your rash decisions, counteracting your foolish mistakes, doing everything in its power to stay in the game.
Make peace with your body today, my friend, say your apologies, right your wrongs and move on with appreciation.
You are blessed.
Look around you, not everyone is so blessed.
Not every one is breathing, walking, thriving.
And whilst you are looking around, see that nobody is perfect. The way a body looks, says nothing about its strength, its longevity, its endurance.
This is not a rehearsal, this is your one shot at a life well-lived.
Make it count ❤
