Asking of the Body

A Call and Response

How do I begin to converse with you?

Does this year make you feel colder?

When will you stop aching?

Why do you hurt so much?

Do you think you’re beautiful enough?

For a life partner? For anyone?

If you lose weight?

When will you know you are enough?

When will you finally break from bending over backwards?

How are you feeling?

How are you moving in this world?

What makes you feel better?

Who loves you?

Who sees you?

What do you need?

What do you need to let go of?

What’s hurting you?

What’s burdening you?

I have so many more questions, are you listening now?

Will you answer?

As I ask my body these questions, I offer the same questions for yours and the option to respond with your answers.

    Mmm…yes, mostly every woman must ask herself if she is worthy of everything she wants. Finding a “Yes” is the most transformative embodiment of self-worth and self-love. May you know you’re worth it and claim your birthright!
