    How to listen better to what my body needs & wants for nourishment, fun & self-care. I never use to think of it when I was younger, but- I have been learning how to appreciate my body for getting me around in this world.

      That sounds like that would be a great first sentence of a book.

    That it is awesome. I notice things in the way I move that I’ve never noticed before: the habitual ways that I organise my body in movement. It is fascinating how complex ‘simple’ movements are. And then there’s walking. So much brain power involved. So complex that robots can’t be programmed to come even close to human walking gait.

      I have no idea why, but this made me think of how John Travolta walks, lol.

    My body is teaching me that everything is connected and listening to my body will not mean I will understand what it is saying or that I will know what to do with that information.

    Use it or lose it, keep moving. First I pushed too hard, took a hit, now I push too little. Looking for balance but still giving myself that daily hug and saying “oh honey”.

    . . . that my body is only on loan,
    and to get the best out of it,
    I need to listen to it and take care of it . . .
    I’ve also learned to love my scars and blemishes,
    the wrinkled and arthritic fingers that have touched the world,
    and have created beauty . . .
    they have earned every wrinkle.
    My body has earned every scar . . .
    I love my body
    for all the pleasure it has given me
    and for what it has allowed me to experience.

    It’s teaching me how everything is impermanence and empty of a self .

    That it is the mystery that I should lean into – nay, yield to.

    Slow down. Breathe. Feed it well. Move it regularly. Take care of it while I on this earthly planet and it will provide me with what I need. Treat it poorly and it will let me know. Overall, love it like you would another.

    To pay attention. I have not done that for the majority of my life, so this is new territory for me. I have tried for years, but seem to fall back into my old ways sometimes. Then I remember, and once again pay attention. I remember to thank it for all it has done for me, and I tell it how grateful I am for it….ALL OF YOU ON THE EASTCOAST.my prayers and blessings today with the snow cyclone you are getting. Here is hoping you don’t lose power….

    My body is teaching me that maintenance is asked for in many things in life, and also teaching me not to take gifts for granted!Just because I have this gift of health now, doesn’t mean I will always have it.Same thing with the planet. 🌎

    SPARROW – I wanted to let you know that though it has taken several attempts, my brother finally responded to my reaching out to him. Thank you again for sharing of your self! 🙏🕊

      perhaps the beginning of healing
      for both you and your brother…♥

    It thrives on movement. It loves to be stretched, contracted. It is happiest when I eat lots of plants, consume alcohol moderately, drink lots of water, sleep 8 or 9 hours.
