Our Bodies Deserve More

"'Our bodies deserve more than to be war-torn and collateral' - Mary Lambert

It’s not easy for me to write a love letter to my body, sometimes I look at it and cannot find any.

I have been taught for so long to hate it’s obvious flaws, but today I love what my body has brought me through. The miles it has cycled, the pain it has taken, the way it has danced.

I love that my legs are solid - they have carried me through both triumph and grief.

I can not attest to always loving this body. But I will always try to."


""Nuestros cuerpos merecen mas que ser debastados en guerras y colateral"– Mary Lambert

No ha sido fácil para mí escribir esta carta a mi cuerpo, a veces lo miro y no puedo encontrar amor.

Me han enseñado por mucho tiempo a odiar sus evidentes defectos, pero hoy amo lo que mi cuerpo me ha traído. Las millas que he recorrido en bicicleta, el dolor que ha soportado, la manera en la que ha bailado.

Amo que mis piernas son confiables – ellas me han llevado por triunfo y penas.

No puedo asegurar que siempre amare este cuerpo. Pero siempre lo voy a intentar."
