I Am Not My Body.
I love this quote: "I am not my body." It reminds me that my true self is so much more than what you see on the outside. I refuse to be defined by the appearance of wrinkles and cellulite. I'm not even blue-green eyes or curly hair or a skinny waist -- because my good parts don't define me either. I am spirit. In a mortal shell. I am a mother...giving life and nurturing spirits in younger bodies, spirits sent (amazingly) to our home. "Beauty and motherhood are one." That is what I choose to remember, deep inside, today and (hopefully) every day.
