Dearest body of mine

The following is from chapter five of Joshua Rosenthal’s book, Integrative Nutrition Feed Your Hunger for Health & Happiness:

Dearest body of mine,

After careful thought and consideration, I hereby promise to:

Accept you and be grateful for you just the way you are,
Love and appreciate you for what you do,
Offer you healthy foods and drinks,
Overcome the addictions that hurt you,
Realize that laughter, play and rest help you feel good,
Exercise regularly and appropriately for my body type,
Adorn you with nice, comfortable clothes and shoes,
Understand that my unexpressed emotions and thoughts affect you,
Listen to the messages you are sending me when you are tired or sick,
Accept that I have the power to heal you,
Realize that you deserve to be healthy,
Honor you as the temple of my soul.

I love you so much,
