I love this piece and it fits in well with the previous post of planning for health for the year ahead. Treat yourself and your body as you would those you love and respect, better than you would treat your best friend, because it is the only one you have in this lifetime and it is the only constant in your life. Without it you would not be able to enjoy life here on earth in physical form.
Our bodies are not our enemies, treat your body with care and give it the support it deserves.
There are times we become conscious of a deeper hunger that will not be satisfied physically. We can make a new, healthier choice for ourselves in any moment, regardless of the hour, day, week or month. And when we make the choice lovingly, we work from a creative place of improving our lives and nurturing the best within us, so there is no need to punish ourselves. From this place, we can be gently honest with ourselves about the reasons we want to eat certain foods. We can reach out to doctors to help us determine if our bodies are out of balance at a level that requires something other than basic nutrients. We can also reach out to our friends for support and to share the journey of health, which is just another part of our adventure on the physical plane.
When we treat ourselves and our bodies as we would a trusted and loyal companion, we keep our energy free from negative thoughts that would complicate our journey. Our bodies are not our enemies, and we are not fighting a battle. Instead, we are investing our love and attention into the care and support of a beautiful creation--our selves.
