We have only one body. We won't ever get another. But how often do we appreciate it?
Mostly we notice our bodies in frustration when we are sick. "Why is my body holding me back?" we ask. Or we notice it when we are weak, sore or stiff. "This darn thing is getting old," we say. "If only it would do what I ask of it."
It is our only body, a vital part of our human existence. We would not be human without it. We should love our bodies and tell them so. You might be surprised at how much happier you feel and how unified.
"Skin, feet and ankles, bones, muscles, blood, heart and lungs, stomach, intestines, liver, nerves, eyes, ears and tongue - I love you."
