My Body Is Not a Temple

“My body is not a temple. Temples can be destroyed and desecrated. My body is a forest, thick canopies of maple trees and sweet-scented wildflowers sprouting in the underwood. I will grow back, over and over again, no matter how badly I am devastated.” – Anonymous


Self-love means loving myself at 160 Ibs, 217 Ibs, and 235 Ibs. It means loving myself when people “politely” advise me to lose weight and when I decide to make strides to do so on my own. It means being committed to loving myself during ALL of the phases of my journey with my body and being determined to embrace my body at all of those stages as well.

      Thank you. I am aware of the many different definitions of “Temple” along with the many other definitions and interpretations of various other words.
      What you believe to be your “Temple” is great and I respect that. What I believe to be or not to be my own “Temple” is my business and really shouldn’t be up for interpretation or explanation. . I don’t feel there really is a “need” to “go there”. ♥️
