My body is the only one I'm granted.
Today I choose to honor my body temple with nourishing foods, cleansing breaths, and peaceful moments.
I am given this one set of muscles, this one set of bones. I will coddle and care for the freedom of movement they grant me. I will be grateful for the skin I live in.
Today I recognize the beauty that is the human form, in everyone I meet. This is a precious life, and I will care for the vehicle that carries me through my days and nights.
I will not feel selfish in choosing healthy rest when my body requires it. I will not ignore my body when it longs to stretch or run or balance or climb.
Today I choose nourishment. Today I feel healthy and strong.
Roots and Wings
Today I will find a space to feel centered. I can see myself grounded to the strength and vitality of the earth, her creative energy surging into me like roots.
I allow this beautiful force to flow up and through my body, lifting me into my best creative enlightenment.
The earth is full of possibility and her songs fill my heart.
