Dear Body

Thursday, January 07, 2010

(Written as a result of a Wellness Workshop I'm taking)

Dear Body,
I've been asked to write a letter to you as part of a Wellness Workshop that I am taking. I've been asked to be kind... That is not easy for me, Body, since as you know, it is difficult for me to even look at you much less find nice things to say. However, there are some things I like about you. I like that you are healthy and strong yet soft. You have carried me through 38 years in health, healing me when minor health issues arise. I like that when I apply myself I can feel you become leaner and stronger. I like your cute toes and little ears, rosy cheeks and blue eyes. I like the shape of your legs and I think you are the perfect height.

You are amazing in that you tolerate all the hate and abuse I pile upon you. Physically, mental, emotionally. I've given you a rough time, Body and for that I apologize. You have stuck with me, Body, through thick and thin and for that I love you.

    Wow! That is a beautiful letter. I could've written that letter! well, except for the blue eyes! lol How did that letter make you feel after you wrote it? I guess our bodies do endure abuse. Thank you for sharing your feelings on SP

    I think this is a great exercise and you have inspired me to write a blog about how we look at ourselves and in order to do so, you have to be positive and realistic at the same time!
