how I wait for insight

I wonder if you know,

the work your body has done today.

And every day.

How much disease it has fought off.

How many times it could have failed but battled on,

how many ways it could have broken but did not.

I wonder if you know,

the work your body has done today.

And every day.

And each day it has done this amazing job,

without your help,

without your approval,

your acceptance,

your kindness.

Each day it has soldiered on,

regardless of the constant stream of negativity,

pulsing its way from your brain to your cells.

Not good enough.

Not attractive enough.

Not the right shape.

Perhaps it’s time to see your body for what is truly is,

An amazing and mind-blowingly competent machine.

To get your soul to where it needs to be in this life.

To let you live.

I wonder if you know,

how much better you would be as a team.

I wonder.

~Donna Ashworth

forever seeking solace….

inquiry for today~ may the day be sweet and kind, however hard….

find the edge

In letting go

of something special to happen

maybe we can realize

that something special

is already occurring.

~Jon Kabat-Zinn

  1. I often imagIne having to remember to breath, remembering to digest each meal … these are just the beginnings of the miracle our body performs for us…
