6AM and it's the start of a new day; the beginning of what may be the end or what may just in fact be the best day of my life, but I won't know that until i make up in my mind that either of the two will exist. First the making of the bed, then the gathering of the undergarments, then off to the lavatory for the morning ritual- a rinse, a lather, a scrub, a rinse and a dry. But it was THROUGH this process on this morning that I realized that what attention that i am giving my body is all that it will ever get; it's a liability and an asset. I suddenly became much more appreciative for the life that my body allows me to lead, the actions it allows me to take, the joys it allows me to experience. should i lotion today? why, of course i should, why not? how else do i expect my body to get the moisture that it needs- the retention of the moisture that i added during the CLEANSING process? It's like leather, it has to be cleaned and conditioned periodically, but in this case much more often then not due to our excessive use and dare i say misuse of what is only a barrier between who and what we really are- a soul. i am not my body. its only a vehicle THROUGH this thing we call life to my INEVITABLE destination. It's a garment for me to decorate, accessorize, and style to be whatever i feel for that moment- an expression of my mental versatility.
So, yes. I do chose to MOISTURIZE today and everyday. I do choose to prevent and circumvent obstacles that threaten the very health and EXISTENCE of my only form of transportation to commute from dream to dream, from adventure to adventure, from EXCURSION to EXCURSION. It's all I've got in this world, why destroy it! EXTREME measures of care would label me as "vain", but at what cost do I examine and diagnose the conditions of addiction to be free- free to care, free to love, and/or free to enjoy the only thing God has given me here on this earth that is DETRIMENTAL to my ability- the purpose I'm here? that's not for anyone to decide but myself and as the famous QUOTE goes, "only God can judge me".
So what is it that I'm exactly saying here? take care of yourself and do it the best that you can to the full out extent that you can. take time for yourself and treat your body right. it's not invincible; you only get one.
(Peace + Love = Happiness)
