We all have one, but how do we feel about it? Are we proud? Self conscious? Could our body stand some improvement? Hate what it has become? Or do we wish we were blessed with a better looking body other than our own?
I look at mine and I go through phases; some days I curse and asked why I have the body that I have? I can blame it on genetics, but that would only be partly correct. I can blame genetics, as I said earlier, but I don’t do what I need to do to have the best body possible based on genetics. If I could afford it, a trip to Sono Bello would definitely be in the cards.
But why am I comparing my body to somebody else’s? Am I not grateful for what I have been blest with? I am getting older and like most of us boomers, am beginning to feel my mortality. I wake up, dealing with my aches and pains, but once I get going, I do fine. However, some body parts need more help than others to get going. Overall, I can stil get around, I am grateful for that. I can still do things that I no longer take for granted, such as walking, ability to feed myself, bathe myself, ability to think through things,
Ok, I have said it.
That being said, I will cherish and thank the Lord for the ability to still move and function independently and do all I can to continue doing so, and not take it for granted.
Why?..because life is short, so get on with it!
