When I think about the importance of reminding myself to love myself and my body, there is always one quote that comes into my mind and inspires me to love who I am. This is from Muhammad Ali, entitled ‘Your Body is Sacred’.
Hana, everything that is valuble in the world is covered and hard to get to. Where do you find diamonds? Deep down in the ground, covered and protected.
Where do you find pearls? Deep down at the bottom of the ocean, covered up and protected in a beautiful shell.
Where do you find gold? Way down in the mine, covered over with layers and layers of rock. You’ve got to work hard to get to them.
Your body is sacred. You’re far more precious than diamonds and pearls, and you should be covered too.
