I woke one day last week having LOW LOW LOW energy.
My nerve/systemic pain in my arms were exceptionally uncomfortable. The bottom of my feed were tender and my ankles were beyond stiff.
I tried to not think about all these symptoms that are due to the Hashimoto’s and or the hypothyroidism and or the epstein bar virus….and or who knows what else!?!?!?
I tried not to thing about how I don’t feel motivated some days to move because my lab numbers are low for my thyroid, my hormones and even my blood sugar levels just aren’t where they should be.
Instead of thing about all the “imperfections” I was seeing and feeling with this body….
I FELT FREE!
I distinctly remember looking at my loving husband that evening and knowing not only with my mind but my heart:
I AM MORE THAN THIS BODY!
I didn’t allow ANY of the dysmorphia chatter to have any ground. I didn’t allow the wounds, hurts of the past abuse to cloud the undeniable beautiful truth of how and why God created me…..beautiful….wonderful…ME!
I leaned into my husbands warm, loving embrace with absolute abandonment and love. A love of self and a love for our amazing relationship.
A love for this journey of finding continual healing and freedom from past hurts, pains, abuses.
A freedom from mind chatter…..and a freedom to see how…
I AM MORE THAN THIS PHYSICAL BODY!!!
So yes I AM A BODY FULL OF PHYSICAL MOVEMENT….
I AM A MIND FULL OF WONDER…
I AM A SPIRIT FULL OF LIFE…
I AM A SOUL…..FULL OF AMAZING LOVE!
Do you see more than your physical body?! Or do you get caught up too much on your physical body that you forget to appreciate the WHOLENESS OF YOU!!?? Sit with this….pray about this……write about this…..LIVE THE TRUTH!
Many blessings and hugs my dear readers….family…..friends…..
