A Love Letter to my Body (Part Two)

Monday, April 1, 2013



So guess what I have been doing ...I have been looking at myself and watching what I do and I have to say sometimes I am amazed ..... This writing a love letter to your body is helping me so much and I'm really taking it serious.....

I feel like I have started a journey and its a journey of falling in love with myself ...Its not a conceited journey its an accepting journey a forgiving journey and a love journey .....I have hated myself for so long now for things I did and didn't do and the way I looked ...

Someone a long time ago took away my self confidence and made me believe that I was worthless and I continued down that path until the day I stumble across the dare to love yourself post and as I sat in front of my computer screen and began the first part of my love letter to myself my journey began and I feel like its a journey that will take me to a different level of my life and will be a lifetime journey

My love letter may be long but I'm writing it from my heart...I'm  opening myself up and seeing myself honestly and so my journey continues




Dear Body

I must say I am enjoying the love I am discovering for you ....I looked at you today and traced my fingers around the dark circles of your eyes and thought of all the sleep you have lost and I wanted to wipe the marks away for you......

I love the little brown mark you have on the left side of your nose to me it's so cute  :) To see you smile is sometimes very hard for me but to see you trying more makes me so happy.....

I love how small your hand looks when it's held by Michael...It saddens me so much to see the scars that you have but I can see the journey you have taken in each one ....When I look at the scar on your arm I see it as the beginning of learning that no matter how rough things got it never helps to harm yourself.....

I see the scars on your fingers and see it as anger taking over and you just wanting a voice .....I see a body that has held and protected four other lives and gave birth to three and learned how to handle the pain of losing another weeks before it was time for you to bring her into the world.......

It hurts me so much to see you laying on the bed crying because of the pain a cruel disease has brought you.......I want so much to softly sing a song to comfort you ....

I see your feet and the scars they bear from you being so carefree and wild like in your childhood ....Never having time for shoes just wanting to run of somewhere and explore life

Is it wrong to love you so much now ...Is it wrong to want to tell the world how beautiful you are inside and how vulnerable and innocent you still are despite your past.....This love I feel for you is growing so much as I look inside you and really get to know the real you ......

I feel so open when I write to you and I feel like I can't say all I need to say to you in this letter so I will save it for another day

Be safe my wonderful love and enjoy the attention and love that is coming your way

Love Me

“But is it such a bad thing to live like this for just a little while? Just for a few months of one's life, is it so awful to travel through time with no greater ambition than to find the next lovely meal? Or to learn how to speak a language for no higher purpose than that it pleases your ear to hear it? Or to nap in a garden, in a patch of sunlight, in the middle of the day, right next to your favourite fountain? And then to do it again the next day?”
