Your body was made for so much more than being looked at, deprived of food, and enjoyed by others. Your body was made for kicking some ass. - Jezebel Article, 15 Nov 2010
I'll admit it...I haven't been feeling so great about my body lately. Thanks to the events of the last few months, I'm carrying some extra weight -- the grief baby, as I am calling it -- and generally am not motivated to do much, though I'm trying.
So this article was very timely for me. I need to remember to celebrate my body. My ticker is still ticking. My legs are still carrying me. My brain is still functioning (well, mostly!). I had similar feelings after my grandma passed away...I found myself complaining about my body, and then remembered...it's still functioning. Regardless of what I do to it, I wake up every morning, am able to get out of bed and go on with my day, however I please.
So I say thank you...thank you dear body for giving me these strong legs to help me keep walking through the last few months, arms to reach out when I need help, and a heart that will keep on beating, even while it mends itself.
