Letter To My Body

Dear Body,

There are so many things I want to say to you but sometimes it gets really hard and I get choked up. But I guess I will start with an apology. I am so sorry for how I have treated you over the last ten years. I am sorry that I judged you and tried to alter you rather than understand you. I am so sorry that I have starved you to please other people. I am so sorry that I have marked you up in ways that are unforgivable and attempted to cover. I am sorry that I tried to hide you under loose clothing when I should have let you shine, curves and all. I am sorry that I have not been grateful for the strength that you possess and how you find energy to keep going, even when you want to give up. I am sorry that I have not loved you and called you beautiful, like you deserve. I truly am so sorry.

But with that being said, here is what I am thankful for. I am thankful that you keep going every day. I am thankful that you have given my mind and soul a safe home. I am thankful that you let me cover you in art pieces for life. I am thankful that you make me feel beautiful, even though I may not have done the same for you. I am thankful for the heart that kept beating even when it was broken. I am thankful for the power that you represent. I am thankful that you continue to fight for me, even if things get painful. I am thankful that you for how you heal. I am so thankful that you are my home. I am thankful that you love me back even when I may not have loved you.

I promise that from today on, I will listen and act with love, and nourish you because I love and respect you. And to everything you have done for me, even if I have not deserved it, thank you.
