More of Me. More to Love.

More of heart.
More of soul.
More of mind.
More of me.
More to Love.

More of Heart.
Yes, that’s a good thing.
More loving, generous, kind.
Heart is also my courage,
strength, determination.

More of Soul.
A bigger, better connection to
the spiritual side of life,
to the inner being, the eternal,
the higher aspects of myself.
Yes, this is also good.

More of  Mind.
Smarter. Wiser.
More thoughtful.
More scholarly.
More intelligent.
Good, good, good.

More of Me.
Here is where it gets hard.
My thighs, my belly, my hips.
My wrinkles, my pimples, my scars.
What is beautiful about me.
What is ugly.
Everything about me.
More of me.
All of me.

More to Love.
No, not more to tolerate.
Not more to half-heartedly accept.
Not more to sorta, kinda, almost like.
No ironic air-quotes or self-deprecating jokes.
Take it literally: More to Love.

Heart, Soul, Mind, Me!

There is so very much more to love about who you are.

    I always say I’m “more to love” in a way to make fun of my size, when really I am not loving myself very much at all.
    thanks for reminding me that all of me deserves love,
    (yes, even my “love handles”)
    : )
    thank you once again Elizabeth!

  • Elizabeth

    you are most welcome Kathy! I write these to words for myself too, as a reminder that honestly, I am more than just whatever size I happen to be wearing these days, and that everything, including my least favorite aspects of myself, deserves compassion and love.
    Or at least deserves awareness and forgiveness for being human, instead of anger and resentment for not being ” perfect”!

  • I needed this today, Elizabeth, as I am dealing with some perimenopausal pounds that refuse to budge. I’m going to go visit some friends I haven’t seen in years this weekend and I do not feel good about my appearance. I am trying so hard to remember that my appearance is only a tiny part of the whole package of me, and that what’s on the inside, I think, is pretty darn good. Thank you for this concise reminder.
