In this body I soften.
No longer do I pursue that which I am not.
No longer do I move with harshness and force.
In this body I listen, i allow and I am open to what it’s showing me
No longer do I punish this body, for it is a gift to walk in each and every day.
With one breath I return, focused and knowing that changing this body will not give me happiness—never has this been true.
For the happiness that is sought after resides within, already awaiting my acceptance of that which is, and of who I am.
This body does not deserve to be told she is less than, not enough, not the ‘right’ shape or size, she deserves openness, acceptance, gratitude and above all love.
Nourishing our body through kindness in all forms—the way we feed it, the words we speak to it, the way we move it, the care and attention we pay to it...all create wholeness within, a sense of inner peace, freedom and unconditional love.
And so, perhaps next time you will decide to choose again—choosing to nourish your temple from a place of love instead of trying to ‘fix’ it and force it into being something it never was nor ever will be. There is only one of you, earth suit and all, how freaking awesome is that?! #nourishnotpunish #happinessbeginswithyou ✨💓
