“Try to be like the turtle – at ease in your own shell.”
Bill Copeland Poet, Writer and Historian
Accept the body you are in as the best gift that you have ever been given- more precious than china, more valuable than diamonds, and more perfect for you than anything that you can ever imagine. Through acceptance of this invaluable gift, you recognize how lucky you are to experience your life as seen through your particular eyes- may they be brown, green or blue; how lucky you are to experience others through the experience of a rich culture; and how lucky you are to experience the world through your senses processed by your amazing mind. Once you get to acceptance and are at ease in your shell, the judgmental noise and criticism melt away so that you can experience the events in your life with love, joy and peace. Remember that you are unique, there is no one else like you in the world! Bask in the beauty of that knowing and wrap your arms around the notion that you are perfect just as you are. With that kind of ease, your own skin becomes the best place you are in! I just love that!
