When I decided to choose recovery, I decided to choose love. It was really hard because I had made my body to be an object of destruction via overexercising and under eating. Recovery was difficult because I had to train my brain to view my body as a vessel of love instead of an object to destroy. I went from destroying and destructing my body to thriving and constructing a new perspective. The road was not perfect. There were lots of bumps and missteps. I had to practice a lot of self-forgiveness when I treated my body in a “destructive” way instead of a “constructive” way.
Now, it feels so freakin’ awesome to tell you that I only choose to practice a constructive way of treating my body. This past year, I’ve also started to see the body in a totally different light than I ever did before. There is a passage from A Course in Miracles that really drove this point home and I’m so excited to share it with you! Watch on and love that bod pod!
My body is a temple and my soul is the altar.
My body is a container of love.
I love my body because of the space it holds for my love.
