Self love day 5- thank you letter to my body

Dear body,

I’ve never said thank you. I’ve never appreciated the amazing things you do without me even thinking about it. You breathe without me thinking about it. Each breath is taken without the thought process first. How amazing is that? Food digest and eliminates just by your own functions. Blood is circulated from my head all the way to my feet and back up to my heart and I don’t do anything about it. The functions of the human body are truly staggering. I never really said thanks and appreciated all those amazing things you do that are done automatically that keeps me alive.

My body gave me my child. I had life grown in my belly and produced my daughter. 18 years ago almost 19, I created precious life with my own body. My daughter which is my entire world has brought me joy, sadness, anger, frustration, and has taught me more about myself and life than anybody else could. I don’t think I’ve ever said thank you for that amazing gift.

I think what I’m on most amazed and thankful for is the fight you continue to fight against my MS. Every day has been a struggle that is not easy and sometimes it could be exhausting. Yet I push and push and you do and do. I’ve never said thank you for continuing this fight with me for the last 20 years. This fight that has kept me on my feet, as difficult as it is some days, I’m still up and walking and I never said thank you.

I’ve been so negative on you because of the weight, forgetting all the amazing things you have given me and done for me over the years. The things you do every single day and for that I’m truly thankful.

With love and appreciation,

Jamie
