Your body is a vessel.
Take a minute. Seriously.
Think about it.
The absolute beauty and intricacy of this.
Not your muscle or your weight.
Your wrinkles or your dimples.
Your tan or pale skin.
But YOUR vessel.
And in that vessel
Messages travel to your brain at 200 miles an hour.
If stretched, your DNA covers 9,000,000,000 miles.
That’s a quick trip to planet Pluto and back.
7.5 billion people on Earth and no one has the same fingerprint.
200 muscles work together so you can move one step.
An adult body is comprised of 7,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 atoms.
20,000 breaths a day.
So look at this body of yours
As a vessel.
Not simply a canvas for yoga pants or spray tans or bikinis.
Not something we obsess and worry over.
But something we celebrate in awe and wonder.
This beautiful and intricate vessel that carries your most treasured soul.
Honor how hard it works to carry you, protect you, and provide you life.
The ability to hug and handshake, run and remember, laugh and cry.
Making love. Moving mountains. Meeting life where you are.
Enter into this week with gratitude.
