I love this and how it speaks to regrowth. This is something I’m focusing on hard right now. I feel like I have abused and misused my body so much.
Putting the wrong sustenance into it, not giving it the movement it needs nor the fresh air and sunshine required for it to thrive. Not to mention things like exposing it to unnecessary stress or negative energy. In the last 6 months, I’ve felt anger more than usual and I’ve cried more than I probably have the whole entirety of my life. Things like that take such a physiological toll on your body, on a cellular level.
And I’ve been feeling it, trust me. It has been one thing after another with my health. I’ve had a few scares but I’ve been lucky and there has not been anything detrimental to my life or anything that could not be fixed or reversed. I really think it’s my body’s way of telling me to get my shit together. And I hear it. I’m listening and I have begun the work.
That’s one of the main reasons I started this whole detox plan. And I’ve gotten started on a few things but I have been sick for the past 3 weeks and it’s taking me a minute to feel 100% again. I thought I had strep throat but I didn’t so it was probably just a summer cold or a bad bout of allergies. I’m still not fully recovered and yet another issue has surfaced in which I’m having some abdominal pressure and pain, which I hope is just maybe some strained muscles due to all the coughing I’ve been doing. I have a feeling it’s a little more than that but I don’t want to speculate just yet until after my abdominal ultrasound next Friday.
I feel like I’m getting on the right track with my body and I’m going to make that my main goal and focus for the next few months. It’s not about looking better, it is about feeling better and my body not rebelling against me.
I want to fall in love with myself again…from the inside out.
