Beautifully made

~ by Irmi L

We are so beautifully made. It often fascinates me how intricate and complex our bodies are. It's a carefully constructed mesh of interdependent systems. All of them need to be in balance for your body to thrive. It seems impossible that any of us can ever be healthy!

And yet, as delicate and complex as the balancing act is, it's also mind-blowing how resilient and self-sufficient it can be. Your body fights off infections you don't even know about, it protects you from catastrophic collapse in your cumulative systems more often than you think, and it fends off the debilitating effect of our toxic environment on an ongoing basis. No wonder we get tired "for no reason" sometimes, or finally fall ill after changing a job, moving house, or taking care of our sick kids through a cold or flue season...

When pop psychology tries to tell you that you are awesome, they are not lying. Every move you make, every thought you think, every meal you digest and absorb to become the energy your muscles and cells need to do their thing is just phenomenal... YOU are a work of art, a bio-engineering marvel, a cosmic miracle worth your own attention.

It's important that you feel okay. If not to you, then it is to me. When we are at our best, we can contribute our best. People out there are waiting for you to come and contribute your best, even if you don't know it. Even if they don't know it. We all need each other to bring 100% of who we were made to be every day, because in this way, we all fulfil our purpose.

If you needed a reason to go on today, this is it: this network of human energies needs yours to be complete. Don't give up now. I'll even be cringe for you: You ARE born with. It's not Maybeline. It's 100% you and you rock so hard!!!
