Body Love

Dear Body Love,

It’s me Grace. Your goddess. I really do love you so much body. I love you so much. I wish you knew how much I appreciate you and am grateful for you. I am grateful you only take me to the doctor once year and fight off all the bad guys.

I say I love you, but do I really? I find it so hard to feed you the good stuff. The stuff you need. The stuff for us. For our future.

I do love you, body. It’s just…so…hard. I have no motivation to eat healthy or exercise. The same trite statement every body else says to their body. And I am doing the same to you.

I am eating my prepped meals…mostly. What can I do to do better by you?

Here are my plans: I will join Zumba again. Body, you are worth the long drive and the money. You are worth it. I will also start with small sugar goals.

For example, today my only goal is not to have any sugar. Just today. Let’s start small. We can do it, body, can’t we? We can.

I think about you a lot. And I know you can do it. We can do it. We are important.

We are brilliant. We are whole. We are complete.

“Our body is precious. It is our vehicle for awakening. Treat it with care.” -Buddha

But how do I wake up?

Love,
Grace
