there's been a lot of things that brought me
to this point....
and i love that.
i love how that works.
so many tiny threads twist together to bring me
somewhere and it isn't until i'm smack in the middle
of it all that i even notice all the different
things that pulled together to make it so.
but here i am.
thinking a ton about my health, my body, and
my relationship with both.
a terminally ill friend wrote me yesterday and
reminded me to rejoice in my health.
talk about a reminder.
i was thinking about that this morning in the shower.
that is so much to rejoice about.
i've been thinking about the whole 'the body is
your temple' thing as i read 'women, food and god.'
i've been in search of my belly.
and my center.
i've been waking up to the idea of being mindful,
aware and respectful.
i really do think i'm filled with stars.
i really do.
i know it sounds stupid or poetic or like a nice
but there's something to it.
i mean that.
even tho i don't know what i mean.
and i'm really really likin' this whole rejoicing
in my health and honoring my body.
i have been concentrating on food and exercise,
but i was reminded recently not to forget my attitude.
i met yet another person who seemed bitter and resentful.
and i wondered about that. that's got to be part of the
if i want to be healthy, i really want it to run all the
way thru every part of me.
this is feelin' good.
i think i needed this.
