A love affair with exercise

A reminder to me,

I’ve been around many exercise environments, there is nothing I wouldn’t do or try. At times I have been in darkness, in defeat and in others in euphoric accomplishment bliss. Commonly the greatest thread of treasure that each experience holds is the blissful heady high of escapism. Removing the tensions, mumbles and muses held within my body and soul from wherever I am in that particular day. Exercise is self love, self respect, a soulful safe heady space.

Exercise is a river, my body is the only one that will fight for me, fall for me and love me. It is beautiful yet taken me years to learn this. Not a mirror beautiful world, an ultra ordinary miracle beauty at work. It thanks me for space, for peace and for the tranquility of acknowldgement of calling it in. It is an army of one; a full heart, driving it again, savouring its beat and vibration. At times its felt much like a love affair.

For me exercising isn’t a fight, it’s not always a gym, a heady run or a studio practice. At times its just been the utter awareness and continual up and down of the crazy days of exhausting mother day care. Yet within it I find its gem of treasures.

From gym buff, to meditation on a mat, to hot yoga to the peaceful serene, each all complete me and ‘get me together’. They enable me to be at peace with my body, to value that I am a woman and to respect my feminine. I wonder at its ability to produce beautiful children, to carry the stresses and strains of gritty emotion, yet always deliver. If I look after it, it sheds its illness, it heals, it breathes a new life of lustful fire. Freedom; just love,  it becomes my most beautiful companion. A gorgeous crazy design.

Time sits well with my body. I have learnt that the glitches, its stories the pelvic traumas of birth are here to stay and its ‘our story’ of raw marriage. I have to accept it for its amazing and continual play.

I sit on my gym shoe strings, they show me peace and many places of new. Each gifting zeal, excitement and a rise to the gift I love. In my eyes I am grateful for it each and every day.

It shows up in hedonistic love, it is complimented, it breathes life to every day, experience, relationship and feeling.  It completes me.

I am in Love with every moment of our relationship. Thank you, you are my voice and I adore you.

    As someone just getting serious about her relationship with her body this piece really inspired and resonated with me. For many years my body was my burden, then as I grew, physically, emotionally, and spiritually I recognized it for all the years I worked against it and it saw me through, carried me through my war with it, was waiting for me to love myself…thank you for this post

    • Thank you for such a heartfelt message. Have the courage to be gentle with your body, the only simple law is to deeply love, trust and respect it for how it is today. Catch your words and thoughts towards it, respect it as the dearest thing that turns up for you day after day. Carry it through your journey of life together with pure pride.
