Makeover Monday #3

A love letter to myself. 

Oqibo have partnered up with The Jersey Company to create Happy. Remarkable. You, a professional skincare and health blog. They've recently asked me to create a love letter to my body, so rarely do we appreciate what we have and focus on what we don't or what we'd rather and it's been challenging and refreshing to write my love letter. It's less about my size as during this Makeover Monday series I've not been afraid to tell you that I'm not happy with that, but more about what is beneath all of that. I would love for you all to get involved and whether you are comfortable in posting it on your blog or not, just take 5 or 10 minutes out of your day to sit and think about what you do like about yourself and your body, you'll be amazed at how much you can come up with ....

"Dear Body, 

This is somewhat more of an apology and a thank you than a love letter, size wise I've let you down recently and let my greedy chops turn you into something that I never wanted you to become, but you've never let me down. 

You didn't let me down when I thought my heart would burst at our very first meeting with heartbreak, not the usual boyfriend breakups that most experience, when one of our nearest and dearest was so tragically taken. It took me a long time to heal mentally, but physically, you carried me through. 

You didn't let me down when my heart got worse, except instead of emotionally it was physical this time and something really wasn't right. But you carried me through and no matter how many doctors or consultant who said I wouldn't get better, you fixed me and made life bearable again. 

You didn't let me down when I starved you for so long, so many (especially with the dicky ticker, too) would have given up, as we know all too well from losing our dear Auntie Janet. I abused you and wanted you to waste away but you persevered and held on until I saw sense. 

You didn't let me down when you had all you ever wanted, then taken away from you so suddenly. Things could have gone so horribly wrong and there could have been so many more complications, but you've fought through and given me the chance to try again when the time is right. 

You didn't let me down when I tried to end you, I pushed you so far to the edge that I felt myself go, but you dug in your heels and kept me here. Even when I was fighting you the hardest and willing you to give up the most, you didn't let me down. 

Words cannot ever describe how thankful I am to have such a strong body when my mind has been at it's weakest. Although you may not look how I want you to, that is my doing and certainly not yours, and let's face it, it's not that bad... I know you'll do your best throughout me pushing you to get into shape and I know that you won't let me down. 

Yours forever.
