Perfectly You

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

Don’t take anything personally

“Don’t take anything personally. Nothing others do is because of you… When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.” – Don Miguel Ruiz, The Four Agreements.

When I learned to embrace this truth, I found it easier to accept situations for what they were, to let go of any resentments, to offer grace and forgiveness to others, and to move on with my life in confidence.
