The Lessons of Aphrodite - The Body: Lesson 3
Our bodies come in every shape and size. It is one of Venus' hardest challenges to love the body you have. I used to utterly hate and despise my body. And it showed. I was was obese due to my overeating and unhappiness. I had high blood pressure and high cholesterol. But then I worked to change that. I worked to find and love myself (another gift of Aphrodite!), and it began to happen. I changed my eating. I began to exercise. I explored my own body and came to appreciate it. I sought to fully experience life and relish each delicious morsel in my senses. And I lost close to a hundred pounds. That may not need to happen for everyone. I needed to lose the weight for myself, for my health, my body, this temple. Love your body, love yourself. This is the lesson of Aphrodite.
