Worshiping the temple that is your body

Boudoir Business, Intimate Photography, Self Love

You are not a body with a mind, you are a mind with a body, and your body is the most valuable thing that you possess. Whether you are religious or not, you can recognize that each person is a miracle, the life spark inside each and every one of us is miraculous, but without the body to support it, to protect it, it wouldn’t be able to support itself.

We would not be able to support ourselves. This may seem overly philosophical, but hear me out. Let’s take it to a very basic level. Whenever you have only one of something

(e.g. one special dress that you feel amazing in, the first edition of a novel, the Complete Velvet Underground Discography on Vinyl, a chocolate hazelnut cupcake with vanilla buttercream icing, etc.) it has greater value then the other things you have in your closet, bookshelf, or fridge.

These things, although slightly materialistic in form, matter to you, so much so that if someone came along and wore your dress (stretching it out in the process), spilled coffee on your novel, or ate your cupcake (*gasp*) you would be upset. Because these things are almost irreplaceable.But yet, many of us treat our bodies like our bad friends would treat our priceless items.

We push it to extremes, feed it terrible food (the occasional cupcake doesn’t count!), and tend to take it for granted – all the time failing to recognize its inconceivable value, and just how utterly lost we would be without it.

Your body is your temple, your garden, your dwelling place. Treat it with the respect it deserves.

Because too late, well, is too late.

Take care of your body.  It’s the only place you have to live.  ~ Jim Rohn

To keep the body in good health is a duty… otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.  ~ Buddha
