To the love of my life,

Dear Body,

I have been encouraging everyone to write love letters to themselves. However, it has been a while; if I ever have, that I have taken the time to let you know how much I love you. You have been with me from the moment I was born and will be with me to the moment I move to the next phase of my spiritual journey. No matter where I have lived, who I have loved, what I have been doing, you have been with me and loved me unconditionally.

You have stayed with me in times when I did not love myself and did not treat you or myself in a loving manner. You have found your own ways of communicating with me about what I need to do and when. You wake me up in the morning to let me know it is time to go to the bathroom. You tell me when it is time to go to bed. You let me know when I am not supposed to go somewhere and when I am. You let me know when I am physically hungry and in need of nutrition. You do not lie to me like my mind who sometimes says I am hungry when I am not hungry for food.

You have always loved me for who I am and so today, I want you to know that I love you just as you are. Others may not appreciate you for who you are. However, that is about them. Just as you have loved me unconditionally, I love you unconditionally. I know there are times I have not treated you with the dignity and respect you deserve. For that, I apologize. My intention from today forward is to love you unconditionally as you have loved me. Thank you for all you have done, are doing, and will do for me.

Thank you for always seeing me as beautiful. I apologize for those times that I have listened to the words of the planet and not seen you as beautiful no matter what size we were. I want you to know that there is not a part of you that I do not think is beautiful. I am sorry I ever tried to hide you behind clothes that did not highlight your curvaceousness and personality. I am grateful I am now able to dress you in ways that show off your true beauty and let your light shine.

May I continue to grow in my love and appreciation of you as we spend the rest of our lives together.
