When I journal, it is often about what’s on my mind and what is happening with my body. What’s always included are my conversations with God* about these writings. As a result, my writings are a collection of my thoughts about my mind, my body and my spirit. Each area teaches me how to better manage this earth walk that I am on.
For me, I do agree with the concept that my body is a temple, but I don’t always treat it this way. I have learned so much during my journey, some things a long time ago, like how a hangover ruins the morning, my favorite time of day. Some things I am still learning, like recognizing times when I use food for comfort; or learning to accept my body, like how my body will never look like a younger person’s because of my journey (c-section scars, a toenail which doesn’t sit flat on the nailbed, wrinkles which stem from my love of the great outdoors and maybe even loads of facial expressions, including smiling and frowning a lot, etc.).
