So here’s an interesting thing. Since i started doing this physical thing i’m doing, i am much better able to eat mindfully and not eat to manage emotion or just compulsively for no good reason. i am more aware of when my body is reacting to some kind of shame too, and better able to release it. How strange is that?
It really seems too good to last, so i am just enjoying it one day at a time.
While we’re talking body, here are a couple of fun quotes:
“The Church says: the body is a sin.
Science says: the body is a machine.
Advertising says: The body is a business.
The Body says: I am a fiesta.”
~~ Eduardo Galeano, Walking Words
Then there’s this one:
“your body is not a temple, it’s an amusement park. Enjoy the ride.”
