A Love Letter to My Body

A year ago, I looked at you and swore to never be unhappy with you again.

Before, I looked in the mirror and I saw
a Face: unique, never beautiful
a Body: weak, too tiny for the warrior spirit within
a Child: for you were not the desired form of a woman

In Truth, you are
a Face: beautiful because of the love of Christ
a Body: torn, scarred by the ordeals of Life and perfect to house the warrior, although the war was not the one I trained you for
a Woman: for no child could endure the sorrows of losing her own child
a Soul: longing for what will be and reveling in the joys of the moment

Each and every master, regardless of the era or place, heard the call and attained harmony with heaven and earth. There are many paths leading to the top of Mount Fuji, but there is only one summit - love. ~Morihei Ueshiba, Founder of Aikido
