Dear body, I'm sorry

Dear body, I’m sorry, please forgive me, thank you, I love you.

The words I have repeated again + again over the past five years so she knows I’m going to do my very best to look after her.

Dear body,

I’m sorry for the times that I ignored your needs,

for the times that I spoke unkindly to you,

for the war I waged against you.

for the moments I begged for you to shrink, when you needed to grow.

Please forgive me for believing the lies I was told about how you should look so I could be worthy,

for comparing you,

for neglecting you,

for disrespecting you,

for allowing others to disrespect you.

Thank you for your wisdom and guidance that I ignored for too long,

for housing my soul so safely,

for growing + birthing my son so beautifully,

for never ever giving up on me.

I love you for allowing me to run by the sea and feel the wind in my hair,

for enabling me to walk the dog through forests and up mountains,

and for giving me the power to taste freshly baked bread ,

to smell spring flowers ,

to hear morning bird song,

to read my favourite books,

to hug my family so tightly.

I love you for being my vehicle to experience pleasure, express kindness + show love.

I’m sorry.

Please forgive me.

Thank you.

I love you.

What would you say to your body? ...
