All these little things

I'm in love with you and all these little things

I was listening to this song cause it is my new song obsession but it had me thinking of all these little things I love about my body!

Yes, that's right I LOVE MY BODY not in a oh your so beautiful, look at me way but in Thank you God for gifting me with a body that can do amazing things.

All these little things that I love my body -

I love my feet - strong & high arches
I love my hips & thighs as they so strong.
I love the length of my legs.
I love my calves are they are so powerful.
I love my hands are they are so useful and beautiful.
I love my eyes as they allow me to see the world and smile with love.

My body has allowed me to carry, birth and nurse healthy babies.

My body allowed to chase and hug these babies and kiss on them endlessly.

My body allows my spirit/soul to express itself through hugging, dancing, yoga, walking and running.

My body has allowed me to follow my dreams, run endless miles, see some great sites.

When I talking with my sister about this thyroid condition and recent weight gain due to the thyriod. I said to her I will not say one bad thing about this wonderful body of mine. I am not the weight I am gained, I am not my body and I am a soul that was gifted with a wonderful body that I must take good care of .

My body is the a gift from God to carry out my dreams and I will treat it as such by taking good care of it. So it will be feed well, supplemented with iron, omega 3s and thyroid med, sticked, foam rolled, stretched, massaged and be subjected to regular ice baths cause I love it so much. It's these little things that allow me to contiune to run and BE ME.

I am not my body

  1. This is a beautiful post! And I love the c. s. lewis quote.

    As a society, we get so caught up in what our bodies look like externally that we often forget to appreciate everything they do for us on a daily basis. I love every part of my body. Because of my body, I've been able to see and do amazing things -- like make amazing little people!! I feel so blessed every day that I am able to get out and run on my little legs. :)
