I am learning how to be selfish, for love. I am learning to put myself in the center of my life, I am learning how not to depend on others happiness to determine my own. This is a fight, it is a choice and it......
I want you to know that I think you are perfect, just the way you are. I think that we can fight so hard to be more than. I think we are enough. I think that as soon as we allow ourselves to be just as we are we soften, that soft also means expansive, that taking up space is a good thing. You have a body that is your sacred ground, and it’s time we get more comfortable there. Your imperfections, scars and injuries aren’t something to hide away, they are to be brought into the conversation, and in fact I would say they are the conversation. They are life speaking to you in its oldest language though our most intimate companion, our bodies. It’s time to reclaim the body, reclaim our sacred ground, to move it, hold it, dance with it, listen to it and grieve with it, maybe even allow ourselves to LOVE it. I think it’s time to end the war, to set down our sharp knives and begin planting seeds, to give our energy to what makes us sing because there will be no better time and you will not be more ready. I want you to know that I think you are worth it. You are worth your attention. You are worth the ride, and the ride is just waiting in anticipation for you to get over the ‘why you’re not good enough’ and hop on already.
