Today, I am grateful to have a strong and healthy body.
How lucky am I that I can say that? Because I know that there are so many out there that wish with all their hearts that they could say those words.
So, while I have the ability to say it, I am going to be grateful for my strong and healthy body.
Are there things I wish that I could change?
- I am not thin. Now that I have had two kids, I have new bulges in places I have never bulged before and I am not ok with it.
- I have moles that I wish I did not.
- Skin tags. Why. Why must these things happen?
- My joints hurt and I can’t seem to shake a recent shoulder injury.
But that’s not what I choose to focus on.
Instead, I choose to focus on my strengths.
- I seem to have magical endurance. I just started running again last week and can already run for 30 straight minutes!
- My immune system is a force to be reckoned with. I hardly ever get sick, even though everyone in my house does.
- This body has created two tiny, wonderful human beings that are my entire world.
- That being said, I have endured being cut open while wide awake to have those tiny little babies pulled out of me. Twice. And recovered from that, while caring for a newborn. Twice.
- I am able to pick up and carry around my sweet little baby. ( Let’s be honest, she’s a meatball. A precious little meatball.)
- I am not allergic to animals. I’m pretty happy about that one because a world without pets is not a world I want to be a part of.
- I am able to enjoy the wonderful outdoors without fear of horrendous allergy attacks. Just mild ones. Occasionally.
I am strong! I am healthy! And I am grateful.
Even if you are not in optimal physical health, repeating the above mantra and sending loving, healing energy to yourself can help you change your mindset about your own health.
Do you feel strong and healthy? I hope this inspires you to take the time to be grateful for your own physical strengths.
