Word of the Day: Hand Geven

An expression meaning “to shake hands”.

Just in keeping with my theme of perverting the words meaning to my own feelings…

Today I’m going hand geven with my body. It’s faced years of unnecessary and unproductive loathing when all I had to do was care for it. I’m truly blessed to have a healthy body, free of any catastrophic illnesses, yes I suffer with chronic migraines, yes I do have a diagnosed disability. But I am capable of so much. This is a body so well practiced at recovery. It’s time I respected it more for that.

So hey body, I appreciate you. It’s time for us, hand geven.

I hope everyone else is in a place to do the same.
