And I said to my body softly
I want to be your friend.
It took a long breath and replied
I have been waiting my whole life for this
We all come in different shapes and sizes.
That’s what makes us so unique.
That’s what makes us beautiful, each in our own way.
Please never ever compare your body to anyone else’s.
Know that your body serves you well
Lungs breathing, Heart beating
Legs walking, Hands holding
And Mouths kissing
Please love yourself enough
To accept yourself just as you are.
Because just as you are
Is perfect, Is beautiful
Happiness, peace, joy, love and all other good things, start from within.
Take time to nurture your own spirit first. Then you will be equipped to take care of others.
When you know exactly who you are and decide exactly where your personal boundaries fall, you can face the world with strength. Even in difficult situations.
It’s okay to feel afraid, or angry, or insecure, or any other emotion that arises within you. Acknowledge your emotions. Breathe through the difficult ones Then let them slowly dissipate.
Life is for living. Life is for enjoying.
Lovingly embrace every minute!
