lunavine asked: Hi, this is the girl that you met in Seattle after the EA show. We talked a bit and I gave you a shirt. I told you how seeing you that night helped me realize my body is beautiful the way it is. I told you about my eating disorder. I told you how you inspired me to stop. I just wanted to say thank you, again. You are amazing and beautiful and you have inspired me so much. I've been struggling a bit recently, almost going back to old habits, but I think I'll be able to get through it. Your body is your temple, right? I want to treat my body well and have been trying hard to do so, thanks to you. I am hoping to send you a gift as a type of thank you token.
Thank you so much,
YES! YES ! YES! my love….no matter how our culture or society has taught us to look at ourselves and critique it, our bodies are the temples that allow us to take action and move forward, or to walk away, or to help others. In high school i battled with an eating disorder and at the time was an intense athlete. It wasn’t until I accepted the fact that my true love was the stage, movement, dance, expression, reflection, that I even considered my body something of an advantage. It allows me to stretch out my blocked emotions, leap the mundanity of living a human exsistence, and celebrate exsistence through being a reflection in motion. Is there anything you love to do with your body? Take yourself out on a date to something you’ve never done before that makes you utilize your physical self. For one thing is sure. There is no one on this planet that is you. You are so unique and powerful, and though the path to finding this uniqueness is a sorted road, we have each other to bump us along!
All of my love
