You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it.

Wise Words: Your Body

Dear ones,
This insight was too good not to share.

May you be in awareness,
~Jessica

 

I wonder if you know, the work your body has done today. And every day. How much disease it has fought off. How many times it could have failed but battled on, how many ways it could have broken but did not.

I wonder if you know, the work your body has done today. And every day. And each day it has done this amazing job, without your help, without your approval, your acceptance, your kindness.

Each day it has soldiered on, regardless of the constant stream of negativity, pulsing its way from your brain to your cells. Not good enough. Not attractive enough. Not the right shape.

Perhaps it’s time to see your body for what is truly is, An amazing and mind-blowingly competent machine. To get your soul to where it needs to be in this life. To let you live.

I wonder if you know, how much better you would be as a team.

I wonder.

It takes courage… to endure the sharp pains of self discovery
rather than choose to take the dull pain of unconsciousness
that would last the rest of our lives.
