Taking Care

I have struggled so long with taking care of me.
being good to my body
this one body
God has given me.

and then...
I started
to work out
eat healthy
pay attention
to my body
my mind
my spirit.

it feels good awesome
to take care of me
to know that
I can.
and so...

so I do...
I just do it.
home work outs
lots of water
healthy portions
treat myself right.

and then I wonder...
why did it take me all of my adult life so far to arrive here?
this place of taking care.

I remember the day I took this picture. It was right after a work out and I felt: strong, beautiful, happy, peaceful, proud and quiet; all at the same time.
