Today I asked my body what she needed

Today

I came across this beautiful poem today by Hollie Holden so thought that I would share this with you

 

Today I Asked My Body What She Needed…

Today I asked my body what she needed,

Which is a big deal

Considering my journey of

Not Really Asking That Much.

I thought she might need

more water.

Or protein.

Or greens.

Or yoga.

Or supplements.

Or movement.

But as I stood in the shower

Reflecting on her stretch marks,

Her roundness where I would like flatness,

Her softness where I would like firmness,

All those conditioned wishes

That form a bundle of

Never-Quite-Right-Ness,

She whispered very gently:

Could you just love me like this?

best wishes

Remember to be kind to yourself, always
