body in mind

Gentle reminder

Out there in South Korea there’s a 30-year-old officer
who’s hosting an elementary school event
With deep voice
and serious gaze
Scaring kids to death.

while teachers and moms get swept away by the wave of thirst.

Fall in love with yourself more and more with each passing day. Have so much respect for yourself that you automatically reject anyone that doesn’t.

Aku Infected Jack

~11 of these are just redrawn poses from the episode. Still had to tweak them though (fix tangents, make clear silhouettes, change expression etc)

Nonetheless, I had fun making these. That last image of complete Aku!Jack is my fave of them all qwq

Don’t let your mind bully your body into believing it must carry the burden of its worries.

Take a look at all of the amazing things that you have done up to this point. Yes, there may be bad decisions and mistakes scattered here and there, however these do not erase all of the good that you have done. Allow your positive actions to shine through, radiate your soul, and continuously remind yourself that you are always capable of truly amazing things.

it’s such a strange thing that we care about what we look like. like have you ever just considered that cavemen didn’t have mirrors or cameras or anything to see themselves up close with and they didn’t even care about what they looked like? we literally come from the universe, all of us, and we have most of the same basic parts/appearance but otherwise we look different. our skin and eye colours change based on where we live to protect us from harm and ours cells join together different to give us our other differences in appearance. we’re just built the way we are to survive as every other animal is. when did we go from recognizing our bodies for their health and grace and strength and resiliency to picking them apart and criticizing them and starving ourselves to eliminate parts of them and comparing them to others? when money became the vital part of owning anything and therefore critiquing bodies and selling products to combat these new flaws was a new marketing technique to make tons of it. they made something so unimportant a crucial part of life and i think it’s pure bullshit. don’t even just love your body but realize that its appearance is actually such a stupid thing to waste your energy caring about.

Stop and take a moment. Ask yourself, “Is there anything that you need? Have I taken care of you today? Are you genuinely happy?” Just like anyone else on this planet, you deserve to be taken care of. So before you continue, make sure your body and mind are both giving a thumbs up as well.

Your health should be the absolute top priority. Without it, where would you be now? How would you be able to experience all of the many beautiful sights, tastes and songs of the world? Always take care of yourself, both mentally and physically.

No one has ever said “I regret that workout”. Working out is good for you regardless, so no excuses! A one hour workout is only 4% of the day 💪🏼
