What kind of relationship do you have with your body? I chose THE day to be inspired for this post. The 34-year-old girl, who had a LOT of fun last night, who abused the good stuff…
… and that's afterwatch! Ouch. My body is hurting and he reminds me that he is not 20 anymore this morning.
My body is right! I have lived with you for 34 years. I want to take the time to talk to him. I lived for several years looking at him and his reflection. Too many years of looking at my envelope, judging it, comparing it, controlling it, giving it a hard time… Really!
I wanted to try to control EVERYTHING that came into me. Go from deprivation to excess, passing through guilt. This disastrous "way of life" has given me many nightmares.
Listen to your body
And this, until I understood that I had only to take the time… to listen to him. As simple as that! When he tells me: “I am hungry”, I give him energy. As for the excesses, I still do, but the MEGA-GIGA difference is that I assume.
No, I no longer have the reflex to get up the next day with the "I have to go train" inhead.
Sometimes I can be hard on you. You know, when I've had a big stressful day, when I'm physically tired, I have a hard time knowing what's actually good for you. Train or relax? The limit between balance and “too much” is easy to exceed in my case. A slightly more stressed period and hop!, the girl needs to surpass herself elsewhere.
All this to say that my body reflects the he alth of my soul, of my interior. When I come to look at my soft stomach, my varicose veins, my new white hair and my little sores, it's because inside of me, it's not going very well… A "stop" is needed!
My body sends me different signals that I don't always want to see. Like "silly" but very real constipation), late menstruation, barred neck… He's the first to realize that I'm doing TOO MUCH, that I'm rowing against the tide, that I'm stressed… and that finally, I have to stop.
Dear body, you are softening. I sometimes cry about my little belly fat. Just like the little fat in the lower back, which always stays cold, even when it's 30 degrees outside. My breasts falling…
Today I would like to say a big THANK YOU. It is YOU who reflects & treasures the person I am.
Thank you for talking to me. Please set your limits. Please respect yourself. Thank you for teaching me gentleness. Thank you for allowing me to give life…
