Let me start off by saying this; you are amazing. You keep going and going, regenerating cells during peace and slumber. You take nutrients from the vast amount of calories ingested and wisely filter out the toxic pieces. You have an ongoing internal war– the good bacteria vs the bad bacteria, with stomach acid so powerful it can dissolve metal. Those nerves on every square inch to give intense warning of forthcoming damage. And your brain.. the powerhouse of the body, for the conscious and the subconscious has amazing abilities.
Body, despite all of your amazingness, you have been my go-to punching bag. I have mistreated and abused you for as long as I can remember. With food, with alcohol, with cigarettes and self induced lethargy.
I’m not sure, but you took it in strides. Liver, thank you for working overtime for the past couple of decades. Stomach, thank you for taking in the good and expelling the bad. Heart, Pancreas, Kidneys.. you guys did it all– kept going with years of abuse. I want to blame brain, but know the reasons are not brain’s fault.
I don’t want to continue to abuse this beautiful and miraculous temple that was given to me by God. It has done SO much for me, and I continued to stomp on it and berate it.
Body, I am ready to treat you like the masterpiece you are <3
